Well over a year after announcing their first collabo smartphone – the Cool 1 dual, LeEco and Coolpad are back again with a refresh of their first product dubbed the Coolpad cool 2. While the ‘Cool’ is a jointly owned brand name, we are however not sure if LeEco is involved in the launch of the Coolpad 2 as the LeEco as been embroiled in a serious financial mess.
The Coolpad cool 2 is made of a metal unibody design with a waterproof body, though we are not sure what that means, whether it is water resistant or fully waterproof still remains unclear.
Adopting the bezel-less trend, the CoolPad Cool 2 features a 5.7-inch display with HD+ (1440 x 720 pixels) resolution, an aspect ratio of 18:9, and relatively thick bezels on all four sides. The device has rounded corners around the display and relies on on-screen buttons for navigation. On the reverse side, the device houses an iPhone X-like vertically aligned dual with a LED flash in between, while a fingerprint sensor with the Cool branding is also visible down the rear cover. The dual rear camera consists of a 13MP and 0.3MP sensors, while an 8MP sensor with face unlock feature sits above the display for selfies.
In charge of its processing need is a 64-bit MediaTek MT6750 octa-core processor coupled with Mali T-860 GPU, 4GB of RAM and 64GB of expandable internal storage. The device is powered by a respectable 3,200mAh non-removable battery, but will sadly boot Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box.
