On paper, the handset has some decent things going for itself even though its marquee feature is the dual selfie camera. The Coolpad Note 6 has a 5.5-inch Full HD display with 1920 x 1080p resolution. So no 18:9 display, but this is a Full-HD  at that price is a very good offering. The handset includes a Qualcomm Snapdragon 435 in its guts and an impressive 4GB of RAM. Two storage options are there to choose from: 32GB/64GB. This is further expandable by a micro SD card slot.

The highlight is the selfie-shooting combo of 8MP + 5MP sensors that can shoot up to 120-degree wide angle selfies.

Despite all the great hardware, the Coolpad Note 6 comes with Android 7.1 Nougat, which is a bit of a letdown. The battery is a beefy 4,070mAh unit, which matches the segments top dog,the Redmi 5. Connectivity options include 4G VoLTE, dual-SIM, and Micro-USB. Also, it does have a fingerprint sensor baked in the home button.
