Coolpad Max flagship phablet all set to launch in India on May 20

Coolpad India is all set to launch a new flagship smartphone in the country on May 20 at an event in Delhi, after recently introducing the Coolpad Note 3 Plus. The invite reads, “As we brought the history changing Dual SIM Dual Standby 12 years ago, this time again we prepared something unique for you!”, without giving any hint about the upcoming device. However, the teaser on the Coolpad India Facebook page reveals that the new device will be the Coolpad Max.

Coolpad India invites for Max launch on May 20

The Coolpad Max was initially introduced back in November last year with Snapdragon 615 chipset and 3GB RAM, however, the company has recently launched a high-end variant of the device with Snapdragon 617 chipset and 4GB RAM + 64GB ROM in China last month. Hence, we can expect any of these two models to launch in India but our bet will be on the high-end model.
