Coolpad Note 3 is definitely a notch above competition, if it weren’t it would not have retained the No. 1 bestseller tag on even after over 2 months of its launch when any product momentum starts fading, We hope to continue holding this position for the Black variant of Coolpad Note 3 as well. This color was unveiled recently during our first ever FAN meet held in New Delhi and rightly so because our fans and costumers continuously demanded a black variant in all our surveys, moreover Mr. GUO Deying, Chairman and Former CEO of Coolpad Group has announced this variant exclusively for the Indian market.
