Commenting on the launch, LI Bin, CEO, Coolpad Group, said:

India remains one of the most important market for Coolpad. We aim to get all our latest products to the country, which is very much in line with philosophy of “Empowering everyone everywhere”. India is a huge and growing market, people want fantastic experiences just like people want anywhere and it’s a market that appreciates innovation. Coolpad Max is a result of our dedication and focus on research and manufacturing. By the end of 2016, we will be setting up an R&D center in India and foraying into offline stores to further strengthen our presence in the country. We are confident to reach a sales mark of 3 million handsets and capture 3-4% market share by year end.

Syed Tajuddin, CEO, Coolpad India said:

Consumers demand and deserve greatness from their smartphone – in function, design, camera and battery life. Coolpad Max is the result of our brand philosophy and our endeavor to bring technology which empowers our consumers. Many people struggle to find the right balance between their personal and professional lives, sometimes using two phones as a solution. Dual Space helps users to separate their personal and professional lives by allowing them to have two accounts on various apps on a single device. To protect both personal and professional information, Coolpad has installed encryption technology that ensures any data, contacts, photos, videos, and applications stored on the smartphone can be well protected without worrying about data leakage.
