LeEco recently announced a new affordable smartphone called the Cool1 Dual. It is a mid-range device that features a 13MP dual camera set up that starts from only 1,099 Yuan, that’s about RM665.
First up, like most smartphones today, be it a mid-range or a high-end device, the Cool1 Dual has a metal body for a more premium look. It features a 5.5” Full HD display and is powered by a 1.8GHz Snapdragon 652 octa-core processor. There are three variants – 3GB RAM and 32GB storage, 4GB RAM and 32GB storage, and 4GB RAM and 64GB storage.
What makes the Cool1 Dual stand out is its dual-camera setup at the back. LeEco says that it uses a second-generation dual camera technology that is similar to the Huawei P9, which uses a monochrome and a colour sensor for a better image quality. In addition to that, the phone can enhance the overall image clarity by 20%, reduce noise by 8% and increase brightness by 20%, allowing users to capture great pictures even in low-light conditions.
Other specs include 8MP front-facing camera, 4060mAh battery, USB Type-C port, dual-SIM dual standby, fingerprint sensor at the back, and runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box with the company’s EUI interface.
