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.

This Coolpad Mega 5C phones look like colourful, but expensive toys. Mediatek 6739 and 2500mah battery? lol nah. This should sell for 3k and nothing more. Mediatek A22 should’ve been there instead. 12nm A53 is better than 28nm A53.

A55,A75,A76 are the future. I hope future snapdragon midrange chipsets are developed on this architecture. Enough of A73/A53 non sense.


Ya they stopped manufacturing 200 series & instead started 700 series
