"How much can you get for *insert low price here*?" is the expected question when it comes to Chinese smartphones. The Coolpad GreatGod X7 is no exception. For your $255, you're getting a 0.25in (6.45mm)-thin smartphone made entirely of glass and aerospace-grade aluminum alloy! This material is said to be hard, but light, as well as scratch, corrosion, and oil-resistant. So, are we pretty much looking at the Robocop of smartphones, or what? The smartphone seems very sturdy indeed!
Screen-wise, we're having a 5.2-inch Super-AMOLED 1080p screen, and under the hood we're looking at an octa-core Mediatek MT6595 SoC with its CPU pushed to 2.3GHz, 3GB of RAM, and 16GB of expandable storage. Although it's still a 32-bit SoC, it is reasonably advanced in terms of multimedia and connectivity features. You can read more about it here. Oh, there's also a 13MP rear cam, an 8-megapixel front cam, and a nano-SIM slot. The operating system is Android 4.4.2 KitKat, topped off with the Cool UI 6.0 interface.
The Coolpad GreatGod X7 will be offered in champagne, pink, white, and blue. Reportedly, there is going to be a Snapdragon 801-powered variant, possibly for global distribution. Speaking of which, we don't know exactly when this bad boy is launching. If you like it, be on the lookout for it!
