The third Chinese smartphone manufacturer to enter the notebook business after Xiaomi and Huawei made their debut this year, might be Coolpad, who recently teamed up with LeEco to produce higher quality smartphones like the phone simply named "Cool" instead of merely entry-level devices like in the years past. Similar to many other rumors, this one comes out of Chinese microblogging site Weibo, where an image of a notebook box surfaced yesterday, that suggests, that a new notebook going by the model number S505 might be released soon.

The image shows the model number and the English word notebook in addition to a few Chinese words, that translate to something like "Cool fashion and quick ice". That might indicate that Coolpad used one of the low-voltage processors in the S505, probably an Intel Core M processor. No other leaks regarding a Coolpad notebook have been released yet so take this information with a grain of salt. Meanwhile Xiaomi is all set to release their third notebook for the Chinese market on December 23rd.
