It’s now become routine for leading manufacturers like HTC, Samsung, etc. to roll out ‘mini’ versions of their flagship devices. Lesser known manufacturers like Coolpad seem to have taken cue from this practice, and are trying to replicate the same.

It is the Tegra 4 powered Coolpad Grand which receives a younger sibling this time. The newcomer, dubbed Coolpad Grand 4 mini, features a 4.5-inch 720p screen as opposed to its full sized brother which packs a 5.9-inch 1080p panel. Full specifications of the phone include a 1.2GHz quad-core Marvell 1T88 processor, GC1000 GPU, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of ROM, 13 mega-pixel rear camera, 2 mega-pixel front-facing camera, and a 1720mAh battery. Like most other upcoming and established phone brands, Coolpad will be shipping the Grand mini with their own take on the Android OS — CoolLife UI 5.0.
The phone gets a price tag of 1,999 Yuan ($330). Currently, the device comes only in a TD-SDCMA variant; there’s no word on a WCDMA compatible version as yet.[Source]
