Although featuring band 12 LTE and RCS messaging, the 5-inch Defiant is a budget handset that runs Android Nougat and features a Snapdragon 425 processor, 1 GB RAM, and only 8 GB internal storage.

Chinese brand Coolpad will soon have a new handset officially available in the US. Dubbed Defiant, this affordable Nougat smartphone is scheduled to launch on T-Mobile on June 16, while MetroPCS should add it to its portfolio later this summer.

Coolpad Defiant is a 5-inch handset with a display that only offers 854X480 pixels, but most of its other specs are in the same low-end area as well. The cameras only offer 2 MP and 5 MP, while the processor under the hood is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 with a clock speed of 1.4 GHz. Next to the processor, we find 1 GB RAM, 8 GB internal storage, microSD support, as well as a 2,450 mAh battery.

This handset runs Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box and supports RCS messaging and band 12 LTE, two treats not usually found in its area of the market. The pricing details are not available yet, but everything should be unveiled next week.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
