The Coolpad Legacy brings a tall display and slim bezels to the budget crowd

Press render of the Coolpad Legacy.

With flagship smartphones only going up in price in recent years, Coolpad is going the opposite direction with the budget-minded Legacy.

Announced today, the Legacy features a 6.36-inch display with Full HD+ (2,160 x 1,080) resolution. Above the display is a 13MP camera, while the dual camera setup around the back features a 16MP primary camera and 5MP sensor for portrait shots.

Also on the back is a fingerprint sensor, along with a rear design that’s reminiscent of aluminum. There’s even a USB-C port, though we don’t know if the phone also sports a headphone jack.

Under the hood, the Legacy features the Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 processor, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of expandable storage, and a huge 4,000mAh battery that supports Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 3.0. Impressively, the Legacy runs Android 9 Pie out of the box. There’s no word if the phone will get updated to Android Q.

You can pick up the Legacy starting today in Quicksilver for just $129.99. The phone is available from Metro by T-Mobile, with no mention of availability through other prepaid carriers. We will provide a purchase link once it’s made available.

New Asus Zenfone 6 teaser shows no notch, no bezels

Asus is ramping up its teaser campaign for the Zenfone 6 ^( smartphone, which will get its official outing on May 16 ^( during a special event in Valencia, Spain.

The handset’s tagline is “defy ordinary”, and it sure looks the part judging from the outline shared by Asus through its social media channels today. As you can see, there’s no notch anywhere, and the screen seems practically bezel-less.

This makes us obviously assume that it’s employing a pop-up selfie camera of some sort. But there may be more to the story and we could in fact get a crazy dual-slider design ^(

The Zenfone 6 has previously been certified by the FCC ^( with a dual rear camera setup, of which the main snapper has been rumored to come with 48 MP resolution. The Zenfone 6 will support 18W fast charging, and it will have a dual-SIM version.

AnTuTu told us ^( it’s going to have a 1080+ screen, 6GB of RAM, and 128GB storage, while at the helm you can expect Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 855 SoC. The phone will run Android 9 Pie, unsurprisingly.
