Coolpad Legacy 5G has been unveiled. The phone is powered by the Snapdragon 765G and supports sub-6GHz 5G, meaning it should work on T-Mobile’s and AT&T’s networks. This flavour of 5G is not as fast as mmWave, but it also doesn’t suffer from its coverage limitations.
The Snapdragon 765G is paired with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of UFS 2.1 storage. There’s a microSD slot for more storage too. Even better, the phone will come with Android 10 out of the box.
The Coolpad Legacy 5G has a 6.53-inch IPS screen with HDR10 support. There’s a teardrop notch in it for the 16MP selfie camera. This camera supports face unlock, there’s also a fingerprint reader on the back.
The main camera is the 48MP main sensor and an 8MP ultrawide shooter. There’s no word on the video recording, however.
The 4,000mAh battery can be charged at 18W thanks to Quick Charge 3.0. The device is a single-SIM phone. It can work CDMA networks with support for Sprint’s bands, so you won’t lose connection out of town. Bluetooth 5.0 is on board, though Wi-Fi 6 and NFC are not.
