3 x Qiku 360 flagships launched with Snapdragon 810, 808 or MTK chips


qiku 36o phones

Security specialists turned phone maker 360 announced their range of smartphones in China this week sporting either Mediatek or Qualcomm chips. Here are the full Qiku 360 specs.

Qiku are yet another newcomer to the Chinese phone market. Following content streaming provider LeTV and Lenovo’s new ZUK sub brand, software maker 360 now sell 3 Android smartphones.

The 3 models cover all price bases with the most affordable model coming in at just 1199 Yuan, while the flagship “Exclusive Edition” costing a huge 3599 Yuan. Sitting between those two models is the “Ultimate Edition “ for the familiar 1999 Yuan price point.

Going over the specifications of the two more expensive models we can also see that those early leaks were in fact accurate and both phones come with dual rear cameras. All 3 phones have rear fingerprint scanners.

Qiku Youth Edition

Costing 1199 Yuan, the Qiku Youth model is looking to square up to the likes of the LeTV Le1 and the newly released Xiaomi Redmi Note 2, and unsurprisingly the phone comes with a 5.5-inch 1080 display, 3GB RAM and 16GB internal memory. The front camera is a highlight at this price point being an 8 mega-pixel, while the rear is a 13 mega-pixel sensor. Another standout feature is the fingerprint scanner and alloy body.

But there is one point which does jump out and that is the processor. Like the LeTV and Xiaomi phones of a similar price the Qiku Youth has a Mediatek chip, but in this phone it is the MT6752 processor with a much lower clock speed and slower GPU.

Qiku Ultimate

Costing 1999 Yuan the Qiku Ultimate will be set to take up the battle with the OnePlus 2 and newly launched ZUK Z1. This time we see a larger 6-inch 1920 x 1080 display, 3GB RAM, 16GB memory, 8 mega-pixel front camera and dual 13 mega-pixel rear cameras.

Construction is alloy again and the rear has a fingerprint scanner. Processing power comes from Qulacomm this time and their Snapdragon 808 processor.

Qiku Exclusive Edition

Sitting at the top of the Qiku heap is the 6-inch Exclusive model. In this phone we see a higher 2K resolution, 4GB RAM, 64GB internal storage, 8 mega-pixel front camera and dual 13 mega-pixel rear.

Qualcomm once again supply the processor but this is Snapdragon 810’s turn to show up!

Other details include 2.5D glass, but oddly enough we have no details of the battery size of each model. What we do know though is that each phone will be offered with a set of security tools including a VPN which is an interesting choice for a Chinese phone vendor to include.

We’ll have more news about the Qiku range of phones, but from what you see so far what do you think?

      you never see black bars in renders & presentation material. look how they use a black background in the promo shot, so you still can’t tell if it has or not.
      have to wait for some real shots of it working to tell if it will have black bars or not

    Ultimate should have 32GB instead.

    • August 27, 2015

      Exactly what I was about to say. Why didn’t they make the Ultimate 32GB? And that’s the one I’m not interested in. But with the 16GB, I may have to pass unless they introduce a 32GB model.

        For actual graphics performance use Futuremark’s Ice Storm and for CPU bench use Geekbench.
        Antutu`s 3D test is horribly outdated and it favours older ES2.0 tech like the Mali MP450 as it does not account for the lack of framebuffer effects and additional embedded features, and it’s CPU test can be optimized by developers to score more than the real world performance is.
        Not saying that Antutu is wrong, but on some SoC it`s a bit of a cheat.

    Not so sure about the rationale behind sticking the fingerprint reader on the back…. Apple have it correct in my opinion, having it on the front, or Nubia with the Z9 Expensive Edition (or whatever it is called!) with it on the side. Most people I know have some sort of protection on their phone, whether it’s a snap-on shell/back-cover or a folio-style stand/case, which render a rear fingerprint scanner useless, or awkward to access if it has a cutout.

    • Dante
      August 27, 2015

      Fact – All cases for a phone with a fingerprint scanner on the back have a cutout for it – Period , Also didnt you take in consideration the fact that the nubia fingerprint scanner has a signifcant uncovered place on the side?

    The press release says the youth model is running the 6753 not 6752. But they claim the ability to uninstall all pre-installed applications which i believe is pretty unique.

    • Marco Lancaster
      August 27, 2015

      Yes MT6753, and there is two variants of the Youth apparently, one with 3GB of Ram that costs $329 and another with 2GB of Ram for $259. Too much for this SoC, but that’s just my opinion.

      • Trayanee
        August 30, 2015

        That SoC is confirmed? Thats sad. 6752 is nice and not much worse thatn X10 but 6753 with its downgraded GPU is a no go

    • Steven Fox
      August 29, 2015

      Man, at that price the 6753 is nowhere near good enough, should have used the Helio X10 at least.
      Redmi Note 2 will kill this device.

            Sd 801 = 32 bit

            • Steven Fox
              August 27, 2015

              SD 801 struggles in 2k, anything above FHD you need Snapdragon 805/808/810,Intel Z3580 or Exynos 74xx, nothing else on the market can really rock 2K(weak GPU’s). Was the main reason I stay away from S801`s running beyond FHD.

            • Aldrex Chama
              August 27, 2015

              You know, the Z3580 is just as fast as a S801.
              And the S808 struggles at QHD too.
              And the S805 runs QHD worse than the S801 runs FHD.

            • Steven Fox
              August 29, 2015

              S808 and S805 work great in QHD, I have a LG F460 and all the task and games are a breeze for the Adreno 420 in 2K.
              It’s the older S800 and 801(which have basically 5%-7% performance difference between them) that struggle above FHD, but that was expected.
              I still call BS on below 7inch 2K displays as it`s only a marketing gimmick, because it drains too much battery and nobody would really notice the difference between FHD and 2K on such a small display.

            • Aldrex Chama
              August 29, 2015

              805 yes, 808 not so much. It’s much weaker.

            • Steven Fox
              August 29, 2015

              Vibe Z2 3D in Antutu scores just around the 9-9.5K mark which is fine, but that’s not very future proof, needless to say that a Xperia Z3 Compact with 720p screen scores about 15k in 3D with Antutu, with the same chip, because of the lower res and 4.6 inch screen, making it the ideal gaming device and it`s even cheaper and it`s waterproof.

      I like how you say only 320$, that is not a small amount to pay for any device, they should have gone with the Z3580 instead, at least it`s a 64 bit chip.
