Coolpad Cool 1 With Snapdragon 652 SoC Receives a Price Cut, Now Retailing for Rs 7,999

Chinese brand Coolpad today announced major price cuts on all its smartphones- the Coolpad Cool 1, the Coolpad Note 5, and the Coolpad Note 5 Lite. As per the price cut, the Coolpad Cool 1 becomes the cheapest smartphone with Snapdragon 652 SoC in India. The 3GB of RAM and 32GB storage model of the Cool 1 is now available at Rs 7,999, whereas the 4GB of RAM and 32GB model will retail for just Rs 8,999 in the country. The price cut is already effective on e-commerce portal Amazon India. Interested customers can head over to Amazon and purchase the product.


Talking about the Coolpad Note 5, it will now retail for Rs 7,999, down from the price of Rs 11,999. Lastly, the Note 5 Lite is already available for Rs 5,999 after the price cut. Sadly, the Coolpad Cool Play 6 which was launched back in August 2017 will still retail for Rs 14,999 in the country.

To recall, the Cool 1 smartphone was launched at the end of 2016 in India. It sports a 5.5-inch Full HD display and is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 SoC. The phone is available in two variants- one with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage and the other one with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage.

Another highlight of the Cool 1 is the dual camera setup at the back. The phone has two 13MP sensors at the back and even offers 4K video recording. Frontal, there’s an 8MP selfie camera. This entire package is backed by a 4000mAh battery.

Coming to the Coolpad Note 5, it offers a 5.5-inch Full HD display and is powered by the Snapdragon 617 chipset. The phone has 4GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. The Note 5 is probably the cheapest smartphone in India with 4GB of RAM. A 13MP camera is present at the back, which is followed by an 8MP selfie camera. The device boots Android Marshmallow and is fuelled by a 4010mAh battery.

Lastly, we have the Coolpad Note 5 Lite priced at Rs 5,999. The Note 5 Lite is a stripped down version of the Note 5 with a 5-inch HD display and quad-core MediaTek MT6735CP chipset. It has 3GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. The device boots Android Marshmallow and has a 2500mAh battery inside.

On top of the price cuts, Coolpad has partnered with telecom operators such as Idea Cellular and Vodafone India to offer additional data on select recharge. Vodafone is offering additional 45GB of 4G data with the Note 5 Lite, Note 5, and Cool 1 smartphones, while Idea is providing additional 28GB of data. All the three smartphones can be purchased on Amazon India.

Yeah the 652 uses the old 28nm process. The size of the transistors is 28nm or nanometers. Smaller the size, better the efficiency. Most chipsets based on A72 still rely on 28nm process. These are the new chipsets you should look out for. Qualcomm made 3 new chips that will come this year along with the Snapdragon 845 1. The snapdragon 460 which is still using 14nm process, and houses 8xA55 cores and uses something called DynamIQ cluster where all cores are on one cluster. (The 652 uses something called big.LITTLE cluster and now it’s gonna be outdated soon). 2.… Read more »

So A72 & A53 have been replaced by A75 & A55. How these cores work? And are they based on 10-14 nm technology or DynamIQ Cluster? Please elaborate a little. Thank You for the info.

Yes for the 2018, ARM has decided to create new processors and they’re A55 and A75. The manufacturer like Qualcomm or Mediatek can use any process to manufacture these processors. They can use 14nm or 10nm or even 7nm manufacturing process. The DynamIQ cluster is a way in which the processors are placed and it’s made by ARM. The ARM Cortex A55 and A75 won’t be used with the big.LITTLE cluster and the A73 and A53 won’t be used with the DynamIQ cluster. You can get more knowledge if you search for DynamIQ cluster and go to images. I’m not… Read more »

There is No Point of being Rude. If you would had been Rude, you wouldn’t have replied to me at First Place. Thank you very much for sharing this price of information. I knew only you would help me out. Googled it and understood what you were trying to say. I was asking all this out of Curiosity. I don’t have any Knowledge about any of this. Thanks for imparting this with me. I think it would be very helpful buying a New Device. After all those Exynos/Kirin/Surge Chipsets available in the Market, I find it difficult to differentiate them… Read more »

Although based on 28 nm technology, it is still much powerful SOC, thanks to 4 A72 cores, kicking its performance..
The rest 4 cores are A53, which are for power efficiency…
However the SOC itself is bit of a power guzzler due to its old architecture.

SD625 similarly is more power efficient both due to 14 nm architecture and 8 power efficient A53 cores, however the raw power from these is not comparable wit that of A72.

Thank You very much for this. Cleared the Doubts between A53&A72 Cores. Keep Enlightening us through your Wisdom. 🙂

Great chipset but old chipset based on 28nm technology!!!!! Two coolpad and one Leeco devices having this chipset!!!!!

Thank You so much Brother 🙂

performance better than 625 but not power efficient as 625.

652: a73 core all 8 core
625: a73 four & a53 four core

January 29, 2018 8:05 pm 8:05 PM

Wrong Info Sanjeet. 652 has 4x A72+4x A53
625 8x a53 processor.

Sorry to say Sanjeet, but you are wrong…
SD652 has 4 A72 and 4A53 cores…
SD625 has 8 A53 cores..
