One of China’s leading internet companies, Qihoo 360, launched its new smartphone, the 360 N4, in Beijing on Monday. The company aims to be a game changer in the low-range smartphone market with the 360 N4.
“The 360 N4 is the second smartphone launched under the 360 brand. And it’s our first 4GB-RAM smartphone priced at RMB 1000,” QIKU’s president Zhu Fanghao said at the launch party.
The 5.5-inch 360 N4 has 32GB of ROM and is powered by a Helio X20 processor and Mali T880 GPU. It has a 13 megapixel back-facing Sony IMX258 camera, and a five megapixel front-facing one with LED flash. Its fingerprint scanner is located on the back. It has a 3,080 mAh battery and supports quick charging.
The 360 N4 supports all three service providers in China and is priced at RMB 999 (USD 153) with three color options. The company also provides a single-provider version for RMB 899.
The first 360 smartphone is the USD 93 f4 launched in March 2016, after internet security company Qihoo 360 and Chinese smartphone maker Coolpad decided on “360” as the name for their combined company. The 360 f4 will go on sale after the launch party Monday afternoon.
The 360 N4 can now be pre-ordered on the company’s official online store 360shouji.com, Qihoo 360’s online store Mall.360.com and e-commerce platform JD.com. It will go on sale on May 13.
