With the announcement of LeEco Cool1, we have another Chinese smartphone that offers immense affordability and features a huge battery capacity and a dual camera setup. It definitely reminds us that we’re looking at Xiaomi’s Redmi Pro, so we’ve decided to draw a comparison chart between the two smartphones.

Cool1 vs Redmi Pro: Which Smartphone Takes the Cake According to the Hardware Specifications

A Snapdragon 652 can be found inside a Cool1, and there’s a huge difference considering the rumors that kept on flashing around a smartphone that was going to pack a Snapdragon 820 and a QHD display. Regardless, a Snapdragon 652 is easily able to hold its own against the competition and its 5.5-inch 1080p display is plentiful for justifying a healthy viewing experience.

The phone will be offered in three different models, and all of those details have been listed below:

  • The base model will 3GB of RAM and 32GB worth of internal storage
  • The secondary model will have 4GB of RAM and 32GB worth of internal storage
  • The best performing model will have 4GB of RAM and 64GB worth of internal storage

The biggest drawback of the smartphone is that it does not feature an expandable storage slot. Of all the things missing from a great price/performance handset and the company forgot to add a MicroSD slot. However, not all has failed because one major selling point of the smartphone is the fact that it features a Type-C USB port, and a massive 4,060mAh battery.

The battery capacity isn’t something that you find on high-end devices, so it’s a really good approach taken by both companies. Best of all, it takes on the Xiaomi Redmi Pro and its dual 13MP rear shooters are able to record 4K footage quite comfortably. The pricing details shed light on the affordability factor of the smartphone.

Cool1 is already up for pre-order from a number of online sources in China, including the Coolpad website, LeMall and JD.com. It will formally go on sale from the 24th of this month and will be distributed in a total of three colors models: Gold, Silver and Rose Gold. Pricing details have been listed below:

  • 1099 yuan ($166 for the base model)
  • 1,499 Yuan ($226 for the secondary model)
  • 1,699 Yuan ($256 for the highest performing model)
