It is worth noticing that the company has slashed the price of the CoolPad Note 3 just before its event on May 6 in India. The company is expected to launch the CoolPad Note 3 Plus at the event. The Note 3 Plus is a bigger variant of the Coolpad Note 3 smartphone. It may be recalled that CoolPad had launched a CoolPad Note 3 Lite earlier this year for Rs 6,999.
Considering that CoolPad has been focused on the sub-Rs 10,000 segment, we can expect the company to price the CoolPad Note 3 Plus in the same range.
Coolpad Note 3 Lite specifications and features: The smartphone sports a 5-inch HD display (720p) and is powered by MediaTek s MT6735 64-bit quad-core processor clocked at 1.3GHz and paired with 3GB of RAM. It comes with 16GB of internal storage, and a microSD card slot for further expansion.
On the camera front the Note 3 features a 13-megapixel f/2.0 rear camera with LED flash and a 5-megapixel selfie snapper. It also features a 2,500mAh battery while connectivity options include dual-SIM card slots, 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, USB OTG and Bluetooth. The smartphone runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop with CoolUI 6.0 running atop, and will be updated to Android 6.0 Marshmallow in the future.
On the other hand, the Coolpad Note 3 comes with a MediaTek MT6753 64-bit octa-core processor, a slightly larger 5.5-inch HD display and packs a 3,000mAh battery, while rest of the specifications remain the same.
