Chinese handset-maker Coolpad is all set to launch the Note 3 smartphone in India on October 9. The company hinted the launch of the phone in August, and has now rolled out invites for its launch event in Delhi.
The invite does not mention the name of the phone that the company plans to launch, however it features fingerprint impressions in the background, which hint towards the unveiling of the Note 3 smartphone. This will be a budget smartphone priced under Rs. 10,000.
The key attraction of the phone is its fingerprint scanner placed on the rear panel, which will make it the first budget smartphone with a finger impression scanning technology.
Back in July, the smartphone was unveiled in China, and the company claimed that the phone received over 2.6 million registrations in seven days. In India, the smartphone will be sold exclusively on Amazon.
