Coolpad was sitting idle for a long time since 2018, but they are active with a new distributor. The new authorized distributor SD International Pvt. Ltd. launched Cool 6 at first. Now they have launched Coolpad N7 Plus and Cool X in the market. They have also launched the Cool 5, but it is an older model. So we are just discussing the latest products. Both N7 Plus and Cool X are budget range smartphones. They are priced under Rs 20,000 price tag, which makes them a good option in the market.
Coolpad N7 Plus is from the N series, which is very popular in other markets. Similarly, Cool X is from different series, and it is a bit pricier than the N7. These phones do have bigger displays, batteries, and new designs. The new Coolpad phones feature new-generation designs compared to phones we used to see earlier. After all, we are seeing new products after a 2 years gap. As before, Coolpad Nepal is putting its focus on the budget or entry level segment. Many people prefer this segment to get good value products at a reasonable price. So all brands compete here with their best smartphones.

The Cool X is an exciting smartphone because it comes with a big 7.12″ FHD+ display and battery. In terms of core internals, there is 8 core Helio P23 processor. Helio P23 was launched in 2017, and it has technology like MediaTek’s Imagiq 2.0 and MediaTek CorePilot 4.0. The Core Pilot helps to manage power, resource and get the best with 4 GB RAM. The system is paired with 64 GB internal storage and a 6000 mAh battery. This is a big battery, and it can easily power the phone for the whole day with ease. A big screen and a big battery can lead up to good entertainment and a working device.
The front side of Coolpad Cool X has a 13 MP selfie camera that is capable of taking high-resolution photos and recording 1080p videos. Similarly, on the rear side, we get two sensors. Primary camera is 16 MP standard wide angle, and the second one is 0.3 MP for depth. This setup is capable of shooting FHD videos and capturing sharp images. There are a lot of different modes in the camera app of Cool X. In the case of this phone as well, we would have liked to see an ultrawide sensor. We advise the team to put that sensor because that is more popular among enthusiasts. Previously telephoto and depth cameras were popular as secondary sensors, but now people have realized that ultrawide is more useful.

Impressions and Assay
Coolpad N7 Plus and Cool X are budget-level phones. These launches were actually necessary for the company to update in the market. Coolpad was stagnant for a long time. So the company launched a few popular models from their portfolio. The N7 Plus is a well-balanced smartphone with a 6.53″ screen, 4000 mAh battery, Helio P22 processor, 4 GB RAM, and dual cameras. However, Coolpad Cool X is even more interesting with a 7.12″ screen and 6000 mAh battery. The processor inside Cool X is quite old, but other core internals are standard
Coolpad rejuvenated after a long time, and within this gap, many people thought the company left the market. This uncertainty is bad for brand and trust. Now, the company should focus on launching phones regularly and maintaining brand reputation. When people buy a new phone, they need a guarantee and security. We all need a guarantee of good after-sales service and customer support for at least 2 years. Users will need a stronger guarantee bond to build trust.
