Coolpad Max is a sleek 4GB RAM phone with an SD617 inside (full specs)


China’s Coolpad have launched their newest phone for the Indian market, the Coolpad Max.

It isn’t quite a 6-incher as the name would suggest, but still fairly conscious with a 5.5-inch display (FHD) and a body that makes the phone feel great in the hand.

Under the metal unibody, the Coolpad Max has an octa-core Snapdragon 617 (4 x 1.5GHz + 4 x 1.2GHz) SoC with the Adreno 405 GPU, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of expandable storage and a 2800mAh battery.

Cameras on the phone are a 13 mega-pixel ISOCELL with PDAF on the rear, and a 5 mega-pixel selfie camera on the front. It runs Android 5.1 with Cool UI 8.0 on top, but the experience is fairly stock with some value additions, including the ‘Dual Space’ feature which lets you use a couple of accounts on apps such as WhatsApp, Facebook, etc.

Coolpad have given the Max a price tag of 24,999 INR, which honestly doesn’t seem as bad after using the phone in its metal glory.
