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-Mobileâ€™s and AT&Tâ€™s networks. This flavour of 5G is not as fast as mmWave, but it also doesnâ€™t suffer from its coverage limitations.
The Snapdragon 765G is paired with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of UFS 2.1 storage. Thereâ€™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. Thereâ€™s a teardrop notch in it for the 16MP selfie camera. This camera supports face unlock, thereâ€™s also a fingerprint reader on the back.
The main camera is the 48MP main sensor and an 8MP ultrawide shooter. Thereâ€™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 Sprintâ€™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.
