360 Q5 & Q5 Plus Smartphones Launched with 13MP Dual Rear Cameras in China



After parting away from Coolpad, Qihoo 360 had launched quite a few smartphones in China. While earlier the company has sold its smartphones under the brand name QiKU, none of these new devices are made available outside of China. After launching the smartphones under the F & N series, today it unveiled the new Q series. The 360 Q5 & Q5 Plus are the first smartphones to be launched under the Q series. With the latest update of 360 OS, the company has brought enhanced security features like chip-level encryption, private mode, and many others. The company also mentioned that the device requires the password even to shut down.

360 Q5

The 360 Q5 comes with a 5.5-inch Full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels) Super AMOLED display and is powered by Snapdragon 652 octa-core processor. It has 4GB of RAM and comes in 128GB of internal storage. The device comes with metal build unibody design, and there is another variant with anti-bacterial metal body priced slightly on higher side. It is backed by a 3200mAh non-removable battery and supports Quick Charge 3.0 which can charge 0% to 50% in just 30 minutes. It measures 149.5 x 74 x 8.5 mm and weighs 164 grams.

360 Q5 Plus

Compared to the 360 Q5, the Q5 Plus comes with a bigger display and better processor. It sports a 6-inch Full HD Super AMOLED display and is powered by Snapdragon 820 quad-core processor. Most of the major Chinese brands have launched at least one smartphone with 6GB of RAM, and the Q5 Plus is the first smartphone from Qihoo 360 to feature the 6GB of RAM. There is also a 4GB RAM variant and includes 128GB of internal storage. It is backed by a 3700mAh battery and supports Quick Charge 3.0 as on Q5. The 360 Q5 Plus measures 156.5 x 80 x 8.3 mm and weighs 175 grams.



The USP of both the Q5 & Q5 Plus is their cameras; there is a 13MP selfie camera on the front with an aperture of f/2.0. On the rear, there is a 13MP dual camera setup where one is an RGB sensor and other is a monochrome sensor. It is assisted by PDAF for faster focusing and includes dual tone LED flash & 6P lens. Both the device come with USB Type-C port and also includes an IR blaster on the top edge. On the back of the devices is the circular fingerprint sensor. The devices support dual SIM dual standby with the help of hybrid SIM slot where the user can opt for either a second SIM or MicroSD card.

Both these two devices run on highly customised 360 OS 2.0 based on Android. Coming to the pricing, the 4GB RAM variant of 360 Q5 Plus costs 2599 Yuan whereas the 6GB RAM variant costs 2799 Yuan. The 360 Q5 is priced at 1999 Yuan, and the other variant with the anti-bacterial metal body costs 2199 Yuan. The devices are currently available for registration and sales starts from August 30th. We aren’t expecting these devices to be launched in foreign markets including India.
