Commenting on the milestone, Syed Tajuddin, CEO, Coolpad India:

We feel vindicated by our consumers’ decision, it is no more a cake walk to sell a smartphone to the tech savvy Indian audience, but behind our competitive pricing is Coolpad’s brand philosophy of bringing affordable technology to all, we witnessed a phenomenal response during our pre-sale registration process and knew we had connected with the people, Coolpad Note 3 is definitely a one up in its category.
