Snapdragon 615 equipped Coolpad Great God F2 has FDD-LTE and will launch tomorrow


coolpad great god f2 launch

Around 2 months ago Chinese phone fanatics were treated to the CoolPad Great God F2. With amazing specs and a low price international fans were green with envy, but not for much longer.

In less than 24 hours, China’s Coolpad will be releasing the China Unicom version of the Great God F2. The F2 is the second generation Xiaomi Redmi slayer from Coolpad, boasting a 5.5-inch 1280 x 720 display, 2GB RAM, 13 megapixel F2..0 main camera and 64bit processor.

Customers on China Unicom mobile networks in China, or those of you not living in China will be excited to know that this version of the phone uses a Snapdragon 615 8-core processor running 1.5ghz and has dual SIM support for FDD-LTE and WCDMA networks meaning it will work outside of China.

Pricing in China will be a cool 999 Yuan, international customers will need to wait for resellers to get stock before pricing and availability is announced, but expect the phone to begin shipping ahead of Christmas.

    I own f1 and i’m not sure I’ll be changing it with this one – I was hoping for FHD screen

    I got one last week. It has decent performances, although the Cool UI OS can be annoying as it is clearly aimed at chinese users. Google play does not load properly, but apps can easily be sideloaded via the file manager. Battery life has been pretty good so far, much better than my iNew v3. International users may want to note that my copy only has options for English and Mandarin, no other languages.

      how does this processor compares to mt6592? Is the performance gap huge? Right now I’m pretty satisfied with Coolpad F1, and from what I’ve seen this Snap615 (which isn’t krait, but arm) doesn’t seem a huge update in comparison, at least not worthy if you come from the mt6592! What do you think about it?
      The coolui is only english and chinese, there is no official multilanguage for it, as you said it’s aimed at chinese market, but if this phone is supported as the F1, custom rom will arrive soon!

        F1 seems to have decent ROM support, so fingers crossed that one will come out for the F2 pretty soon. CoolUi is not terrible and some of the chinese apps are surprisingly decent, but I generally prefer vanilla android over other versions. It is based on 4.4.2 at least I dunno about how it compares speed-wise to mt6592, but it is noticeably smoother than the inew v3 that it replaced. Much better battery life as well.

      If Playmarket can’t be added easily this will be major problem for buyers.

    You can buy this on Ali Express but not all sellers seem to be legitimate one seller has this updated Coolpad f2 with Snapdragon 615 SOC for $99.00. Well you know the saying “If it looks too good to be true” then it probably is too good to be true. Other sellers have it on sale for around $200.00. Not sure about which FDD-LTE bands are supported on this phone ?
