Well that’s a surprise (no it isn’t)! After the official announcement of the Helio X20 chipset by Mediatek, new devices using the specific chipset keep poping up.
This time, it is QiKU‘s turn to unofficially unveil a device. QiKU, a somewhat new company (had only been established a year ago) part of the Qihoo 360 group, took its turn to cross the door of the TENAA, the Chinese organization of communication equipment certification center.
It seems that the company is preparing for the 2016 battle by introducing in the following weeks the replacement of its last year flagship, which, according to TENAA will sport a 5″ FHD Display, 2.500mAh battery, metallic frame and what has become a standard after HTC MAX, a fingerprint sensor underneath the camera module.
QiKU has an event planned for March 21, the same day as Apple’s event and it is rumored that it will be rebaptised and take the name of the parent company (Qihoo 360) as 360 Mobile.
During this event, we expect to see another device (much more powerful) by QiKU, the F4 allegedly powered by SD820 SoC and dual-lense camera on the back. Of course, a full metal body should be considered a standard for this device. It seems it’s going to be an exciting year for the industry as more and more new players enter the game.
