The phone, which runs on a decent 1.8GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 processor combined with Adreno 510 GPU, starts at an affordable CNY 1,099 (approx Rs. 11,078) for the variant with 3GB RAM and 32GB internal and goes up to an economical CNY 1,699 (approx Rs. 17,149) for the variant with 4GB RAM and 64GB memory.

The one thing that makes LeEco Cool1 Dual different from its competitors in its price range is the impressive dual camera setup, consisting of two 13-megapixel cameras at the back of the device with dual-tone LED flash, f/ 2.0 aperture and phase detection auto-focus (PDAF) features.

Selfie lovers, don’t be disappointed. LeEco Cool1 Dual also comes with a 8-megapixel front camera so that you can continue your selfie shenanigans but with better picture quality.

Available in eye-catching Gold, Silver and Rose Gold colours, the dualSIM phone is a brilliant performer even in the battery department with its 4,060mAh battery and support for fast charging.

The phone, which runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow-based EUI 5.6 out-of-the-box, will go on sale on August 24, but people in China can pre-book the phone on the Coolpad website, LeMall and There haven’t been any details on the global availability of the phone and its pricing yet.

With the World Photography Day just around the corner (19th August), I think this particular phone will be a perfect gift for your camera obsessed friends.
