China’s Coolpad have released the Great God F2, the successor to the popular Great God F1, with added LTE.
Being one of China’s largest smartphone makers, and a popular OEM device maker, gives Coolpad some great buying power that helps when making affordable phones. The Coolpad Great God F2 is the second in the ‘F’ range of phones this year and costs an incredible 999 Yuan yet has specs some flagships struggle to achieve!
The phone uses an octacore Mediatek processor, but not the new MT6595! Instead the 1.7Ghz MT6592 octacore SoC has been employed along with the MT6290 4G model giving the phone LTE access. The display has increased to 5.5 inch from 5-inch but remains a 1280 x 720 panel, there is 2GB RAM, 16GB memory, an impressive 13 mega-pixel F2.0 camera and Android 4.4.2 Kitkat.
Design wise we have a big of a mix and match between Meizu and Nubia designs. Coolpad have made the F2 in plenty of colour options (yellow, orange, purple, white, etc) with a halo style home button on the front.
