Coolpad has silently launched the Cool Play 7. The new phone succeeds the Cool Play 6 announced last year but arrives a month earlier. Although the device does come with a modern design, Coolpad has equipped it with a less powerful processor.
The Cool Play 7 has a 5.85-inch HD display with a 19:9 aspect ratio and a bit of bezel at the bottom of the screen. The back is also made of glass with an oleophobic coating like the front too while the frame is made of zinc alloy.
Coolpad has swapped out the Snapdragon 653 SoC of the Cool Play 6 for MediaTek’s MT6750 1.5GHz octa-core processor. The chipset is paired with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of expandable storage.
The phone comes with two 13MP sensors on the rear and can take portrait photos and record slow-motion videos. Housed within the notch is an 8MP camera for selfies with a bunch of beauty filters. The phone supports Face Unlock and also has a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner.
Coolpad says the phone has an AI assistant that is pretty useful for hands-free usage. You can give it commands to launch apps, make calls, and set reminders.
The Cool Play 7 has a 2800mAh battery and a micro USB port for charging. It also has Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, FM radio, and a 3.5mm audio jack for connectivity.
The phone will be available in white, blue, and black. The price has not yet been announced but we should know by next week, July 30, when Coolpad officially announces the phone. However, JD.com already has it listed for early reservation.
