Coolpad 8295 packs a 5-inch display and quad-core CPU for just $130

Coolpad aim at the low-end market with the new Coolpad 8295 quad-core phone with 5-inch display at just $130.

It seems each year Chinese phone makers choose a new lower price point and start a price war. In the past 999 Yuan ($160) was the magic number, but due to the release of the Xiaomi Hongmi, phone makers are now battling it out at 799 Yuan ($130).

Gizchina News of the week

The latest entrant to the price war is Coolpad with their 5-inch Coolpad 8295 smartphone. At 5-inch the 8295 is the largest of the bunch (from Xiaomi, JiaYu, Beidou and others) but the large panel has meant other areas have had so suffer. a 5 mega-pixel rear camera is on board rather than 8MP, the CPU is a lower speed 1.2Ghz unit and the display is a QHd model/

Still at 799 Yuan the phone is still a nice option for those wanting a big brand model at a lower price. Well, it is if you happen to live in China and use China Mobiles TD-SCDMA network as that is the only one the 8295 will support.

      You need full phone specification (band/frequency) to check compatibility with your local network.
