After the recent information that supports the fact that Coolpad is soon to enter Nepali market, we, the Gadgetbyte Nepal tried our best to contact the personnel from Coolpad through different mediums like the website, Facebook and all the possible point of contact. With frequent to and fro communication; we finally got the chance to contact Mr. Lawrence, Regional Director- Coolpad South Asia. Here are some few questions we put forward to him:

Q. Hello Sir, now that we have got the leaks that Coolpad is looking to serve Nepali Market as well, lets us get started with an obvious question, which is in every enthusiast’s mind right now: When is Coolpad launching its smartphones in Nepal? Could you please tell us the models that will be launched?

Mr. Lawrence – Hello, sorry for the delayed response. I hope you understand the protocols however I will try my best to answers your queries. On regarding the launch date, we are excited to launch soon in Nepal, our team is working on it. We have chosen our best products from the lineup to officially enter the Nepalese market. Some of them are Coolpad Note 5, Mega 2.5D etc

Q. Do you think the Coolpad Products are the right ones for Nepali Market? If yes, would you please elaborate?

Mr. Lawrence – Coolpad is one of the top listed Global brands. For Nepal, I believe and have noticed that consumer goes for quality and design. And undoubtedly, we have the best quality products. Nepalese customers are upgrading in lifestyle with the latest technology and Coolpad is very strong in R&D with more than 3000 strong R&D experts globally. So, we will definitely release latest and innovative product in Nepal also.

Q. What are your strategies to win greater market space in lesser time? As you surely know that there are lots of multinational brands already in the market.

Mr. Lawrence – To start with this question, Coolpad had been studying Nepalese market as well as the behavior of the other smartphone brand closely. We look forward to applying the global experiences in Nepal market. As another market, we are committed to providing the best product to our Nepalese consumer.

Q. If you had to choose one out of many, which mobile company does you see as a tough competitor to the Coolpad, especially in South Asia?

Mr. Lawrence – We take every MNC companies as competitors but not tough competitors. We will show our presence in Nepal as a strong player. We have the young and best team for Nepal market.

Q. We all know how well Xiaomi turned Indian Mobile Market upside down. So can you expect Coolpad to do such thing here in Nepal?

Mr. Lawrence – Coolpad has the aggressive business expansion strategy for the year 2017. It is an opportunity to lead the Nepal market with our strong partner. We always keep Nepal market at top priority. I hope our young team does great thing in Nepal also.

Q. Lately, Nepali customers are disappointed to find mobile companies pricing their phones higher in Nepal as compared to the international market. Will Coolpad break that trend for us and price its products the same as in international market?

Mr. Lawrence – First, we should be clear why price difference endures from one market to another market. One reason for the price difference is obviously online and offline channels. Coolpad in India is doing business exclusively with our online partner Amazon. But, Nepal market is an offline market. So, offline markets have multiple layers of distribution channels which add the cost of the product. On the other hand, price depends on the volume. But, we won’t make our Nepal customer disappointed with the price.

Q. Amongst the entire product line up from Coolpad, which one is your favorite?

Mr. Lawrence – Haha! Each and Every product of Coolpad are manufactured following standard criteria. So, every product is special and favorite for me. I am using Cool 1 which is the best smartphone.

Thank you very much for your time and responding to our email. As the New Year is very near, we, from the team of Gadget Bytes Nepal would like to wish you a Happy New Year, and we, the tech-gadget enthusiasts are excited to have you in Nepal.

Mr. Lawrence – Thank you again, I hope I met your requirements. Happy New year to all Nepalese and Gadget byte Nepal. See you soon!
