Coolpad and LeEco had teamed up to give birth to “Cool” brand by launching the Cool 1 smartphone in August 2016. Today, Coolpad has launched the Cool 2 as its successor phone. After launching the Le Pro 3 AI Edition, LeEco has not launched a single smartphone since it has encountered serious financial problems. There is no confirmation on whether LeEco could be involved in the launch of the Cool 2.
