Coolpad had an interesting journey in India so far, which gained a lot of attention for budget shoppers in the country by unveiling Coolpad Note 3 as the cheapest smartphone to have a fingerprint scanner. This made quite an appeal considering biometric security is only found on flagship high-end devices. Today Coolpad has launched a trimmed down version of their Note 3 calling it as the CoolPad Note 3 Lite. As we have already agreed in our previous posts that Coolpad is playing well with its experiments and this device is no exception. The device resembles a lot to its parent the CoolPad Note 3 in terms of design, display, storage and battery.
