Priced at Rs 8,999, the smartphone will be available via online shopping site Amazon India on May 13. The device is clubbed with full-HD (1080x1920 pixel) display instead of the HD (720x1280 pixel) display of its predecessor and will be available in White and Gold colour variants.

Following are the specifications of the device:

  • The Android 5.1 Lollipop-based Coolpad Note 3 Plus bears a 5.5-inch full-HD IPS display
  • Coolpad Note 3 plus is powered by 1.3GHz octa-core MediaTek 6753 SoC
  • The device is coupled with 3GB of RAM.
  • The dual-SIM smartphone (Micro-SIM + Micro-SIM) bears a 13-megapixel rear camera, and a 5-megapixel camera in front. It also sports a    fingerprint sensor.
  • The Note 3 Plus comes with 16GB of inbuilt storage that can be expanded via microSD card (up to 64GB).
  • It runs on a 3000mAh battery, measures 151x77x9.3mm, and weighs slightly more than the Coolpad Note 3 at 168 grams.
  • Connectivity options on the Coolpad Note 3 Plus include Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, GPS/ A-GPS, Bluetooth v4.0, FM radio, 3G, 4G (with support for Indian LTE band).
  • Sensors on board include proximity, ambient light, accelerometer, and gyroscope. 

To recall, the Coolpad Note 3 was launched in October last year at the same price - Rs 8,999 - but earlier this month received a minor price cut to Rs. 8,499, evidently in anticipation of the launch of the Coolpad Note 3 Plus variant.

At this price point, the Note 3 Plus competes with the likes of Lenovo Vibe K5 Plus, LG K7 and InFocus M330. Every product has its own special feature, the Vibe K5 Plus is priced at Rs 8,499 and comes with a 5-inch full HD display and octa-core processor, but misses out on fingerprint scanner. Whereas The LG K7 is priced at Rs 9,500 and features a 5-inch QWVGA display, quad-core processor and 1GB of RAM. Besides a gorgeous looking design, it boasts of inferior hardware compared to the competition, and yet is priced higher.
