Cool 1 is the name of the Coolpad/LeEco phone


Coolpad has taken to Weibo to reveal the name of the first phone made in a collaboration with LeEco.

Coolpad and LeEco’s new joint developed phone has been named today in a Weibo post made by Coolpad. The post names the new phone as the Cool 1 and made a clear reference to the dual camera design of the phone leaked last week.

The Cool 1 hasn’t been given an official launch date and no pricing details of the phone have been revealed yet, but a few reports have given away clues to the hardware that will power the new device.

According to those earlier reports the Cool 1 will get a 5.5-inch 2K display, Snapdragon 820 chipset, 4GB, 64GB memory, 3500mAh battery and of course those dual rear cameras.

Those specs match up with what other smartphone brands are offering for their flagship phones this year, but we wonder if this is really enough to set the Cool 1 apart from the likes of the Xiaomi Redmi Pro, Huawei P9, and even phones that will be launched by Coolpad and LeEco themselves?

We suppose it will all come down to the details and eventually what price the Cool 1 will be sold at, but from what we can see so far there isn’t anything too remarkable about this phone. Do you agree?

    as you said the price is the element to decide, if the price will be set up right I would even consider putchase

      …here we go, shitty colors and black borders… That’s how you tell letv was surely part of the project, damn!

        It’s more the other way around.The LeEco phones were made with Coolpad.
        And yes , the front doesn’t fit the back at all and that dirty pink is just nasty.

          I’ve seen it, the price isn’t the lowest but it’s not high at all for what it offers… Probably because it has less potential costumers than average-sized phones…

            Doubt it as there are few big phones , even fewer with a fast SoC and high res and most are poorly priced.

            Granted it’s using 1440p AMOLED so you get a lesser experience than with 1080p LCD.

              lol you need a slap. Do you really want another rant about Pentile?

              To simplify so anyone can understand – you get full res with green and half the res (1280×720) with red and blue.Hopefully that’s simple enough.

              Pentile= Dude, where are my subpixels?

              There are few big phones, but their potential customers are less as well, so it’s overall balanced… Sure it’s a smart move to exploit a market segment with so less competition, especially in china where the request is higher, but it’s still a niche in the rest of the world

    On the teena documents you can see a “leeco inside” logo… Too bad it’s also a leeco ouside, with their usual diarrhea color on the front and black borders all around… ?
    That’s a shame, i like the back design and the sd820+big battery combo (it’s said to be a 4200mah unit), although 2k screen is a waste for me…

    It should have been LeCool.

    I have always liked Coolpad phones and LeEco are incredible value for the money (even though they don’t fit my needs) so I am looking forward to seeing what else this brings.

    Having said that the rear design of this is hideous to me.

    We do not want anything much remarkable now. We want a phone with minimum 3gb RAM, at least with 32 gb ROM and additional separate(not hybrid) slot for minimum 32gb Memory Card, Full HD Screen with 2.5D(it looks nice) Glass Protection(I have a Meizu M2, it fell thrice on the floor but screen is intact-Dragontrail but my colleague’s iphone 5s glass fractured on one fall), Metal Frame, Big Battery, Loud Stereo Sound, Powerful Processor, Good Camera-front and back, Physical Home Button in front(some do not like it), Fingerprint and Cover with window such that the Phone need not be opened for a call or Notification, Waterproof if possible and a powerful Internet User Option with Global 4G Bands.

      Not to forget, a working FM stereo radio, NFC and most important, the separate 3.5mm headphone connector.
      The
      phone industry currently trying to pipe each and everything (OtG,
      power, HDMI, audio, etc.) through just a SINGLE USB-C connector is just
      bollocks! If they would add 2 more of those, I’ll have no more problem
      with it. BUT THEY DON’T! So the consumer is left to fiddle with a zoo of
      external gadgets/hubs/adapters,… No, Thank you very much.
      Connectivity to external devices more than one at a time has to be built into the phone, not out of it!
