Coolpad Cool Play 8 is a newly announced successor to the Cool Play 7C. It was very recently announced in China, and while this is supposed to be a budget phone, it has some good features. Coolpad may not be a popular brand around the world, but some of their phones are quite awesome.
Coolpad Cool Play 8 Overview
The Coolpad Cool Play 8 has an aluminum body and a large 6.2″ IPS LCD display. But despite being a budget phone, it has a Full HD+ screen too. For a budget phone to sport an aluminum body with Full HD display is terrific. The screen, however, has a wide notch. And it packs only a selfie camera, speaker and sensors.
In the camera department, the rear has a dual camera setup comprising of a 16 MP primary lens with f/2.0 aperture and a 2 MP depth sensor. The selfie camera is a an 8 MP lens with f/2.2 aperture. The back also has a fingerprint sensor up top.
Inside, the phone features an octa-core MediaTek MT6750 chip supported by 4 GB RAM. It also has 64 GB of internal storage and there’s also a microSD card slot for expanding the storage. A large 4000 mAh battery powers the phone too. There is, supposedly, a USB-C fast charging as well, but is unspecified for now.
The phone is priced at CNY 999 which converts to US $145. And yes, at this price, it is a budget phone, but one, that looks like a mid-ranger even.
