China-based Coolpad unveiled its latest budget offering, the Note 3 that comes with 3 GB RAM and a Fingerprint sensor for a hard-to-believe price tag of INR 8,999 ; it was only a few days ago that we announced the arrival of this device in India.
After seeing a Chinese release back in July of this year, the Note 3 has made its appearance on Indian shores. This Android v5.1 Lollipop powered phone provides users with an orientation-independent fingerprint scanner at the back that, Coolpad claims, unlocks the phone within 0.5 seconds. The fingerprint scanner can also be used in conjunction with a set of fingers to launch specific apps. For example, you can register your index finger to open the camera app.
The Note 3 is powered by a 1.3 GHz octa-core processor with a MediaTek MT6753 chipset and is accompanied by 3 GB RAM and 16 GB of inbuilt storage. The Note 3 comes with a 5.5-inch IPS display with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels.
The optics include a 13 MP, f/2.0 rear facing camera with LED flash and a 5 MP front facing camera; both, featuring a CMOS image sensor. The phone also has a 3000 mAh battery and will support 4G. Futhermore, the phone has dual SIM slots.
The Coolpad Note 3 has been launched as an Amazon exclusive and you can head over here to order yours. The sale begins on 20th October at 2 p.m.
