Like the idea of a Chinese phone with a 5.9 inch screen, but not sold on Oppo’s vision of a camera that rotates to face forward or back? Coolpad is also launching a new phone with a massive display.
The Coolpad Magview 4 has a large display, Android 4.2 software, and an NVIDIA Tegra 4 quad-core processor. It’ll also be available with a series of accessories including an optinoal smartwatch that lets you see appointments and messages on your wrist.
Coolpad’s phone sports 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, Dolby audio, a 13MP rear camera and a 1,3MP front-facing camera. It has a 1920 x 1080 pixel display, a 3000mAh battery, and an aluminum case. It’s expected to go on sale in China for about $650 in October.
But it’s the accessories that really help set this phone apart. There’s a CoolHub accessory that’s a pocket-sized device with a Bluetooth speaker, microSD card slot and NFC support.
A CoolHub 2 has all those features plus a pedometer and other sensors.
And the Coolpad cWatch C1 is a waterproof wristwatch which connects to the phone over Bluetooth and lets you access phone calls, text messages, emails, and appointments. You can also control music playback or track your footsteps using the watch.
