Coolpad Legacy 5G Phone launched with 48MP camera, 18W fast charging
Coolpad has launched a new 5G smartphone - the Coolpad Legacy 5G - at CES 2020, and it might well be the cheapest 5G phone to debut in the Western market. The new Coolpad phone packs decent hardware for its promised sub-$400 (roughly Rs. 29,000) price tag. The Coolpad Legacy 5G features a 6.53-inch full-HD+ HDR10 display with a waterdrop notch. It is powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 765 SoC, which packs the Snapdragon X52 modem for 5G connectivity. The new Coolpad phone also sports a 48-megapixel camera at the back.
Coolpad mentioned in its press release that the Coolpad Legacy 5G will be priced under $400 (roughly Rs. 29,000) and will hit the shelves in Q2 2020. In comparison, Xiaomi's Redmi K30 5G is roughly 30 percent cheaper and starts at CNY 1,999 (roughly Rs. 20,100), but it won't likely make it to the US market, which is where Coolpad primarily intends to the sell the Coolpad Legacy 5G phone. However, there is no word on its availability in international markets, including India.
The single-SIM Coolpad Legacy 5G runs Android 10, however, the company is yet to specify if the software is vanilla Android or whether the phone will come with a custom skin. The new Coolpad phone features a 6.53-inch full-HD+ IPS LCD display paired with HDR 10 support and flaunts what the company calls a V-notch.
