Coolpad Tiptop 2 leaks show bezelless design


coolpad leaked

A recent trend of smartphone manufacturers is to release phones with tiny, if any, side bezels. Meizu’s done it with the MX4 and MX4 Pro, Xiaomi’s done it with the Mi4i and Mi Note, Oppo’s doing it with the Oppo R7, Huawei has the P8, and now Coolpad is also hopping onto the zero bezel bandwagon with their own upcoming 2nd generation Coolpad Tiptop smartphone.

Despite what it’s design might imply, the 2nd generation has fairly low-end specifications if the leaks are to be believed. The phone will have a 5.5-inch with a dismal resolution of 960 x 540p. The processor will be a Qualcomm solution, possibly a Snapdragon 410, paired with 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal memory (expandable up to 32GB), a 2MP front camera and an 8MP rear camera. All this will be kept running by a non-removable 2500mAh battery.

The device will have the standard array of connectivity features like Wi-fi, 4G LTE and GPS/A-GPS. The phone will have space for two microSIM cards, an SD card slot and will run on Android 4.4 Kitkat with Coolpad’s own custom skin on top. The phone will also be pretty compact at only 153  x77.5 x 5.5mm and weighing in at 158g. It’ll come in white and gold variants, and will be made of polycarbonate plastic.

It’s clear that this device is aimed at people who prefer design over functionality, and since this is a Coolpad device we expect the price to be well above the standard price for a phone with similar specifications like the Redmi 2. What do you think about this phone? Just another overpriced Coolpad phone?

    153 x77.5 x 5.5mm wouldn’t be compact at all ,it’s above average and indicates huge black bands and an unrealistic render.
    Not that it matters much in the low end.

    Edit: noticed a Coolpad on TENAA that could be this one and then the specs are slightly off

      Yea at 153X77 that puts it as roughly the same size as the Redmi Note (just a lot thinner) that isn’t even close to compact.

        Yeah very thick bezels compared to latest slew of 5.5 inchers. This phone is the opposite of bezeless … non-news :/

    Actually, phones with tiny bezels are quite rare. What’s not rare, and in fact is very common (in China), is the practice of doctoring marketing photos to make the bezels appear tiny.

    No need for 5.5 devices with 540p screens and low-end chipset. Could be interesting if it costs less than 120$, but I doubt it.
