The dual camera setup has one 16-megapixel primary sensor with f/2.0 aperture and autofocus, and another 0.3-megapixel sensor. The flash is situated at the side of the two lenses, which are stacked one below the other. At the front, the Coolpad Note 8 sports an 8-megapixel 4P lens with f/2.2 aperture. Software features include filters, face beauty for selfies, blur mode, panorama mode, and more.
Coolpad Note 8 packs a 4,000mAh battery, and the company claims that it offers up to 200 hours of standby time, and up to 8 hours of talk time. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth v4.2, 3.5mm audio jack, and sensors on board include proximity sensor, light sensor, and accelerometer.
