Coolpad has raised the quality bar of its low cost smartphones, thanks to the Cool 20s, a device with 5G, fast charge, display for gaming and streaming, 50 megapixel main sensor, and stereo audio.
As announced in recent days on Weibo, the Chinese brand Coolpad has announced an interesting mid-range smartphone, the Coolpad Cool 20s, available for pre-order starting from 999 yuan, equal to about 142 euros, in the colors Firefly Black, Moon Shadow White and Azure Blue, for the 4 + 128 GB configuration. On the other hand, purchases will be possible, again in China, from 17 June.
The new Coolpad Cool 20s has a slim (8.28 mm) and fairly light (180 grams) frame with a 3D curved design to improve grip when held in the hand. Frontally adopts the old trick of the drop notch, for the selfiecamera, from 8 megapixels: the screen is a 6.58 inch LCD panel, in FullHD + resolution (1080p), with a dynamic refresh rate up to 90 Hz (which can be lowered to improve the autonomy, which can be increased eg to play Honor of Kings), with support for the DCI-P3 “Hollywood movie color standard” and 96% NTSC color gamut.
The audio is expressed in the 3.5 mm mini-jack and in the two symmetrical 1318 speakers with a super high volume mode, capable of increasing it up to 200% in favor of the elderly: the fingerprint scanner is located on the side.
Behind, with a “lollipop” look, the sensors of the dual camera are stacked on the left: the latter, optimized with ArcSoft algorithms, is made up of a 50 megapixel main sensor (f / 1.8, super mode night scene, 4-in-1 pixel binning for brighter photos with little noise even in low ambient light) and a 2 megapixel macro pixel.
The 7-nanometer Mediatek Dimensity 700 octactor processor (2.2 GHz), flanked by the Mali-G57 MC2 GPU, brings 5G to the Dual SIM with dual stand-by, and cooperates with up to 8 GB of RAM, virtually extendable by 5 GB (total: 13 GB), and with 128 GB of storage. On the energy side, the Coolpad Cool 20s, animated by Android 11 under the COOLOS 2.0 interface, offers a 4,500 mAh battery, which can be quickly charged, via microUSB Type-C, at a speed of 18W.
