First, there was the Coolpad Note 3 (Review) in late 2015. Then, the Note 3 Lite (Review) and Note 3 Plus (Review) were launched. All three were fairly similar, with only a few specs changed in order to meet different price points and keep up with the competition. Now, however, Coolpad has decided to resuscitate this product line and launch the Coolpad Note 3S, which is quite significantly different, but aims to capture the same market.
A lot of time has passed since the first Note 3 model, so the company needs to offer much more than the fingerprint sensor which made the original something of a trailblazer for budget smartphones. This particular phone will take on some very tough competition from Xiaomi, Lenovo, Huawei, Asus and Motorola, amongst others.
