After Micromax, it seems like Coolpad is looking to make a re-entry into the Indian market. After the Coolpad Mega 5A, the smartphone maker has now launched three other smartphones of the Mega 5 series including the Coolpad Mega 5, 5C and 5M. All these three smartphones belong to the budget segment category and will compete against the Redmi phones in India. As for the availability, all the three Coolpad Mega 5, Mega 5C and Mega 5M phones will be available across offline retail stores, across major outlets in India.
