Coolpad have unveiled their newest in the Coolpad Note 5, a phone that’s designed to take on the like of the Redmi Note 3, et al. The Coolpad Note 5 costs only 10,999 INR or $165, and despite that features some high-end internals… including 4GB of RAM.
The phone is powered by the Snapdragon 617 processor, the same SoC that powered the Coolpad Max. With that, it has 4GB of RAM, making it, as per our knowledge, the cheapest 4GB RAM phone in the market as of now. It’s a shame it’s only on sale in India so far.
Other specs of the phone include a 5.5-inch 1920 x 1080p display, a 13 mega-pixel rear camera, 8 mega-pixel front facing camera, a 4010mAh battery, 32GB on-board ROM (with microSD slot) and an installation of Android 6.0 (with Cool 8 UI on top).
