The headset boasts of customizable lenses, which aids the user by changing or rearranging the lenses focal length and the object distance, as per user's convenience. Coolpad also promises distortion-free media playing for VR movies and games, thanks to the special kind of aspherical lenses the Coolpad VR is equipped with. Coolpad promises to provide 'widescreen virtual cinematic experience' via the headset.

Coolpad announced that the VR headset is compatible with its range of phones like Coolpad Note3, Note3 lite, Note3 plus and Max. As for other phones, Cool VR might not be compatible with all of them, and in some cases, might need a special app for the purpose. The headset is said to have a viewing angle of 95-100 degrees, and so one can expect similar experience as that of a Oculus Rift or a Samsung Gear VR, but a very underwhelming experience as compared to the Star VR, which has a viewing angle of 210 degrees. The headset can accommodate a phone with a screen size of 4.7 to 5.7 inches.

According to the information put up on amazon, Cool VR weighs 553 grams, and has the dimensions 20 x 14.5 x 15.3 centimeters. The headset's exterior or the front part specifically is completely white with the model name printed with a large font size, while the rest of the body, including the head strap has got a classic back color. It also comes with a six months warranty, and costs just Rs 999 and is available exclusively on amazon
