Coolpad does not need an introduction. Despite being around in Nepal for less than one year, the smartphone received huge appraisals. The introduction of the first smartphone with dual-camera setup i.e. Coolpad Cool1 in Nepal could be the main reason behind it. But there are lots of praiseworthy specs within the Coolpad smartphones so the brand obviously deserves a due respect. The same smartphone brand has now secured $300m in new funding for building up the Artificial Intelligence capabilities.
