We have in the news that Coolpad is ready to step in India with their upcoming Dazen smartphone. They have partner up with Snapdeal to offer this phone but as they go through that, they have announced Coolpad Tiptop Pro smartphone in China.
Coolpad Tiptop Pro Review
From last few days we are hearing in the news about the CoolPad TipTop Pro as the bezel-less phone. Another bezel-less phone officially launched is the Oppo R7.
The Coolpad TipTop comes with top specifications for a phablet in town these day. Here is what you get -
Display & Processor
These days manufacturers doesn't talk anything less than 5 inch in their smartphone. The CoolPad has powered TipTop with 5.5 inch display providing 1080x1920 pixels full HD resolution at a decent viewing angle.
In terms of hardware, TipTop Pro is definitely a powerhouse with Snapdragon 615 SoC and Octa core processor clocked at 1.9 GHz and coupled with 2 Gigs of RAM.
Software & Camera
There is 13 mega pixel camera on the rear side with f/2.0 aperture, which means it's capable of recording full HD videos and beautiful photos with Auto/HDR mode. There is 5 mega pixel front facing camera dedicated for selfies.
Now then Android 5.0 Lollipop is more than 6 months old, we expect to see it on flagship phones but CoolPad has other way around. They have preferred to go with Android 4.4 Kitkat and this is because of the user interface that they use on their phones, the CoolPad UI which is optimized for Android Kitkat only. For Android 5.0 Lollipop it should be updated to latest version of Coolpad UI.
