Coolpad has announced the launch of its new flagship smartphone, the Cool Play 6. The highlight of the smartphone is its dual camera setup at the back and that it is the only smartphone in the market that packs 6 GB RAM in this price segment.

Year 2017 has been a game changer for Coolpad in India and we continue to put our resources in the country with a plan to achieve 50% percentage growth to extend our market share to 6 % of the total market in India. We already have offline presence in 8 states with a reach in 3000 Multi-brand outlets and have plans to expand it to a total number of 18 states in next one year. It is only because of the quality of our products that today Coolpad smart phones have a 25% market share on Amazon in the sub Rs. 8000 category. With this launch we not only plan to lead the online space but also to make a bigger impact on the offline market in India.
