Coolpad Introduces an Affordable New 5G Smartphone: The Legacy 5G

Coolpad may be a relatively unknown brand in our local market. Contrary to its name, the company doesn't make fever strips or menthol-lined sanitary pads. Rather, they are known for making highly affordable gadgets, including smartphones.

At CES 2020, Coolpad introduced the Legacy 5G, which is poised to be an entry-level 5G smartphone that won't break the bank. Here's what we know about the phone so far:

  • 6.53" FHD+ HDR10 Display

  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 765 SoC

  • Qualcomm Snapdragon X52 modem

  • Android 10 OS

  • 4GB RAM + 64GB ROM

  • 48MP main camera + 8MP wide-angle camera

  • 16MP front camera

  • 4000mAh battery with 18W fast-charging capabilities

Priced at USD359 (~RM1,472), it is extremely affordable, even to our poor ringgit-earning selves. If you're looking to wade into the waters of the 5G world, this may be a good option.

You'll have to wait a bit, however, as the Coolpad Legacy 5G is only available in Q2 2020.
