Another China-based OEM has announced its launch in the Indian market, a market which has seen much love from Chinese makers in the past couple of years.
The talking point this time is Coolpad Dazen, who’s announced its arrival in India with the Dazen X7. If you haven’t heard of the phone yet, here’s what it comes with: a 5.2-inch 1920 x 1080p Super AMOLED full HD display, a 1.7GHz MediaTek octa-core processor, 13 mega-pixel rear camera with dual flash, and an 8 mega-pixel front facing camera.
The Dazen X7 being a Chinese phone HAS to ship with a custom UI with a funky name, and thus, the phone comes with what the makers call ‘Cool UI 6’. I truly hope that the ‘cool’ aspect isn’t just restricted to the name!
An obvious thing would be to compare this phone (which, by the way, is priced 17,999 INR/US$281) to the Xiaomi Mi 4. The Mi 4 has a Snapdragon 801 and 3GB of RAM, while the Dazen X7 comes only with 2GB RAM and 16GB ROM.
Coolpad are hoping to market this phone as a blend of style and grunt; the lack of an additional GB of RAM is perhaps made up by dual Gorilla Glass 3. Lastly, the Dazen X7 will have a 2700mAh non-removable battery, which does sound a little below-par for a 5.2-inch phone, AMOLED or not.
The phone will be a Snapdeal.com exclusive, and will sell June 9th onwards for 17,999 INR.
