The Chinese consumer electronics giant claims that the smartphone has been launched under the Make in India initiative. The dual-SIM Coolpad Mega 2.5D runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow with the company's CoolUI 8.0 skin atop. Coolpad is touting several features of its custom UI, including theme support, smart pattern unlock, and more.

The smartphone sports a 5.5-inch HD (720x1280 pixels) IPS display with a pixel density of 294ppi, 2.5D curved glass, and a 73-percent screen-to-body ratio. The Coolpad Mega 2 is powered by a 1GHz quad-core MediaTek MT6735P SoC that's coupled with 3GB of RAM.

The selfie-focused smartphone sports 8-megapixel camera sensors on the front and the back. The front camera bears an f/2.2 aperture, an 83.6-degree field of view, and a 'smart beautification' mode, while the rear autofocus camera bears an f/2.0 aperture and a Sony sensor.

The Mega 2.5D comes with 16GB of inbuilt storage that's expandable via microSD card (up to 32GB). Connectivity options include 4G LTE (with support for Indian LTE bands) and VoLTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, 3.5mm headphone jack, and Micro-USB.

The smartphone is powered by a 2500mAh battery that's rated to deliver up to 9 hours of talk time, and 200 hours of standby time. The Mega 2.5D weighs 140 grams, and is 7.85mm thick.

To note, the Coolpad Mega 2.5D is nearly identical to the Coolpad Sky 3, which was launched in China less than a month ago, with minor differences.
