Coolpad's newest flagship phone 'Cool Play 6' has finally been announced for the Indian market at the company hosted event in Dubai for Rs. 14,999. The handset will be an Amazon exclusive phone and will be available for open sale in gold and black variants from September 4.
Cool Play 6 was initially launched for the Chinese market in May in two colour variants, Soft Gold and Black. Riding on the success of China launch, Coolpad has been teasing the handset on its official Facebook page with the tagline "6 is not just a number anymore! It is a new era and new benchmark. Monster is all set for 20th Aug. The thrilling power, the invincible. Stay tuned to know more. #LiveToPlay."

Apart from Xiaomi, the Cool Play 6 will have to contend with the likes of Huawei, Oppo and Vivo, among other Chinese and domestic brands.
