By Anuj

Chinese domestic vendor, Coolpad, today announced a 7-inch large size phablet device at the ongoing International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.

Dubbed Coolpad Halo, the world's first 7-inch smartphone with an octa-core CPU, has been shown to the media.

There is no world on the global roll out of the phablet; however, the Coolpad Halo will go on sale in China at a price of 1888 Chinese Yuan or Rs. 19,900.


The Coolpad looks like a regular 7-inch Android-based tablet, but in reality the company says it's a phablet, which we've would have agreed if it was announced as a 6-inch device.
