T-Mobile rings up $50 Coolpad Rogue smartphone for September 30

T-Mobile will soon offer a dirt cheap 4G LTE smartphone in the form of the Coolpad Rogue. Arriving on September 30, the handset comes from one of the larger Chinese hardware vendors and features entry-level specifications.


Powered by Android 5.1.1 Lollipop, the Coolpad Rogue includes a 4-inch display at 800×480 pixel resolution. The rear offers up a 2-megapixel camera while the front has a VGA shooter for selfies.

Under the hood you’ll find a 1.1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor with 1GB RAM and 4GB internal storage. Connectivity comes in the form of Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and the aforementioned 4G LTE.

Are these specs uber-powerful? Of course not – that’s not the point. What the Coolpad Rogue has, however, are enough specs to help ease someone into the world of smartphones, namely Android. Speaking of which, we love that this includes Lollipop.
