qiku helio x20 phone

From a recent listing on the TENAA database, the Helio X20 powered Qiku smartphone has been outed ahead of release.

Qiku are set to launch not one but 2 new phones at a coming event later in the month. From benchmarks of the mystery device we know that one will be a Snapdragon 820 powered device with dual 13 mega-pixel rear cameras, while a second phone will come with a Helio X20 chipset.

Gizchina News of the week

This 2nd Mediatek powered phone will also differ in design with a metal framed, plastic rear construction, single rear camera, rear fingerprint scanner and a 5-inch 1080 screen.

The design from the front of the Helio X20 phone reminds us of recent ZTE phone.

The TENNA database also reveals that the new phone will have a SIM tray, 9.4mm body and 2500mAh battery.

    1+!=2 but if i figure out the square root of 4 then probably.. hmm i might be unto something, i should be able to find the cure for cancer but according to my calculation, *scratches head* this is rather quite puzzling but i will never give up, i am missing a test tube from my apparatus but i will improvise, i must continue my work

    Well I must say that 9.4mm and 2500 mAh doesn’t sound very promising but at least it’s a 5 inch so it doesn’t need as much power as a 5.5 inch one I suppose.

    I still support having powerful 5 inch phones but these days I’ve gone with a 5.5 one and I’m happy with me Redmi Note 2… X20 is still something I’d like to have in my phone though.

    A little underwhelming but all this week we have had leaks of X20 powered phones would love to see some hands on with this chipset.

    Any ideas why we cant buy brands like Qiku from Chinese resellers like Gearbest etc?

    9.4mm and 2500mah is pathetic. Im cool with the thickness. but only if its used well. atleast 3500mah for that thickness.

    Deca Core soc on 20nm with 2500mah sounds bad.

      I agree. 2500 mAh is ridiculous … I’m not even considering any phone with less than 3000, preferably around 4000 mAh.

    I would never consider an X20 until they prove the GPU is better than the last garbage score it recieved.

      Jeah, rather buy overpriced Heatdragon for “seriouz hartkore gamingz!!!” on a mobile phone

    The back is curved so don’t get all upset about the thickness , full dimensions are 142 * 70.1 * 9.4mm .
    And there is this leak , kinda doubt it but 138$ would be one interesting price

      Would be much more than just interesting.

    Mediatek had that Helio X20 event in china
    the SoC was supposed to have 2 versions at 2.3GHz and 2.5GHz and the GPU at 700MHz but that changed a bit
    X20 has the 2 A72 cores at 2.3GHz , the A53 clusters at 2GHz and 1.4GHz while the GPU is at 780MHz
    Helio X25 is the higher clocked version rebranded -2.5GHz with the GPU at 850MHz

    Here are some matching 360 shoes to kick this phone with the worst body-to-battery ratio out of the window: http://www.aliexpress.com/item/Men-Sneakers-Women-Shoes-2015-Comfortable-Men-Shoes-Mesh-Breathable-Women-Fashion-Sneakers-Plus-Size-34/32451314577.html

    oh why has this to be 5″…
    it has everything I am looking for: fingerprint on the back, no onscreen buttons and no “physical” home button either, (atleast partly) metal housing, latest Mediatek chipset, 1080p display and from the looks even a notification LED… but it is missing atleast half an inch in display size :-/
