Coolpad Cool 1 Gets a MegaPixel Upgrade in Dual Rear Cameras; Now Sports 13+13 MP @ Rs 10,999by Adeesh Sharma April 10, 2017 0 comments
It started by vendors enhancing the megapixel count on rear cameras, which to an extent, resulted in better picture quality. Next came the dual camera rage, which resulted in most vendors introducing dual camera variants to their range of smartphones. Now another phase has begun in the megapixels race and we have now started to witness dual cameras having the same number of mega pixels on both cameras. While increasing the number of megapixels, does raise the costs for the manufacturers, consumers should now get better image quality and more importantly, better DSLR like effects on images. One of the dual cameras captures images in black & white while the other shoots through an RGB color filter. The images taken by the two are digitally superimposed to create the enhanced effects on images.
Following Micromax, Coolpad has now launched a new variant of Cool 1 Dual. Aggressively priced at Rs 10,999, Cool 1 sports a dual 13MP + 13MP primary camera with autofocus enabled and dual tone LED flash, which enables users to capture the pictures even in low light condition. The front camera remains 8MP, as with the original version of Cool 1, with an auto beautification mode. This variant of Cool 1 Dual is also equipped with 3 GB RAM and 32 GB internal storage and comes with a 4000 mAh battery offering 28 hours of talk time.
The dual camera smartphone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 chipset with an enhanced 1.8 GHz Octa- core processor and Adreno 510 for multitasking and high end gaming. The phone also has other features such as fast charging, fingerprint scanner and OTG support.
Commenting on the new variant, Syed Tajuddin, CEO, Coolpad India, said, “With military grade aerospace design, Cool 1 redefines smartphone innovation at an unthinkable price point. This variant is the most affordable Dual Camera phone in the market and offers the same monochrome +Color dual camera module that is today available in only high-end phones. Our aim is launch smartphones that consumers are looking for and continue to focus on building deeper connect with our consumers and partners.”
The Cool1 Dual flaunts a 5.5-inch IPS LCD display with the resolution of 1,080 x 1,920 pixels that results the pixel density of 401 ppi. The smartphone is paced with a massive 4000mAh battery with fast charging support.
