QiKU is a Chinese smartphone brand backed by the Qihoo 360, maker of the popular 360 Security app. The new brand has debuted the smartphone market in August 2015 by launching three smartphones including the QiKU Q Terra that was later launched in India in November last year. Now the company has teased the launch of a new smartphone QiKU F4 on March 21 in China.
The Antutu screenshot of the specifications of the device with the model number QK1503-M02 is hinted to be the same QiKU F4 that will be unveiled later this month. The device sports a Full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels) resolution display and we expect it to be 5.5-inches. Under the hood, the device will be powered by Helio X20 deca-core processor clubbed with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage.
The ZOPO Speed 8 that was unveiled at the MWC 2016 is the first ever smartphone to come with Helio X20 processor. There will be a 13MP rear camera and a 5MP selfie camera on the front. It runs on the Android 6.0 Marshmallow out-of-the-box with the customized 360 OS overlaid. Few other rumors suggest the device to come with not only dual rear cameras but also dual front cameras.
It comes with a little curve on the back along with the rounded edges. While the Antutu’s Weibo page confirms the Helio X20 processor, there are few others rumors suggesting the device to be launched with Snapdragon 820 quad-core processor. While nothing has been confirmed by the company, we can expect few more leaks since the scheduled launch event is less than two weeks away.
While Xiaomi and Vivo already unveiled their 2016 flagship devices, Huawei‘s P9 will be launched sometime in the next couple of months. Coming to the new Chinese smartphone makers, now QiKU has confirmed the launch of its upcoming device and ZUK is also rumored to unveil their latest smartphone in the first half of 2016. Stay tuned for more updates!
