Coolpad has finally launched a new smartphone to the Indian market – the Coolpad Mega 4A. If you remember, Coolpad, back at the launch of the Coolpad Cool Play 6 smartphone in Dubai announced the Mega 4A smartphone for the country at Rs 5,999 and stated that it would be available for purchase across offline stores before last year’s Diwali. However, the company did not launch the smartphone until now. The device’s availability in the offline stores for Rs 5,999 is confirmed by the company on its official Twitter handle. Do make a note that the Mega 4A is an offline-exclusive model.
The Coolpad Mega 4A is introduced to take on the Xiaomi Redmi 5A smartphone, which is also available at the same price of Rs 5,999 for the 2GB RAM variant and Rs 6,999 for the 3GB RAM variant. The Mega 5A sports a 5-inch HD display and comes with 16GB of internal storage, which can be expanded up to 32GB with a microSD card. The device boots Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box, and it’s a dual-SIM smartphone with a dedicated microSD card slot.
Rest of the specifications are unknown at the moment, but going by the teaser image, we can confirm that the device has a single rear camera with dual LED flash, hardware navigation keys, micro USB port, single front-facing camera and a rear-facing loudspeaker. The volume rockers and power button are placed on the right side of the phone.
Coolpad tweeted that the Mega 4A can be purchased at any of the retail stores in the country. As stated, the smartphone was initially said to be made available last year, but due to some issues, Coolpad delayed the launch. Furthermore, the Chinese company also said to launch to flagship smartphone, the Coolpad Cool Play S1 in the Indian market, which did not launch either.
Coolpad has recently confirmed that it’s working on a separate business model for the Indian market and the irony is the company is yet to announce an 18:9 display smartphone.
