We have been keeping an eye on the upcoming 360 N4 smartphone for the past two weeks. Now, 360 Mobiles has officially unveiled the device. And guess what, the phone comes with pretty powerful specifications including the new Helio X20 deca-core processor which powers some major mid-rangers like Le 2 this year.
Although the 360 N4 is supposed to be a mid-range smartphone, the specifications are more powerful than its competitors. For example, the phone comes with the deca-core Helio x20 chip with 4GB of RAM on board. There will be 32GB of internal storage which can be further expanded up to 128GB via MicroSD. For display, you get a 5.5-inch panel with 1080p resolution.
At the back, the 360 N4 comes with a 13MP Sony IMX258 sensor with f/2.0 aperture and PDAF while up front, you get a 5MP f/ 2.0 front facing shooter. The battery is of 3000mAh capacity which supports flash turbo charging. This tech can reportedly charge the device to full in just 1.5 hours. A simple 10-minute charging should give you three hours of talktime. The phone isn’t the thinnest we have seen, but still the measurements of 149.09 x 75.79 x 8.3mm are pretty average. It weighs 140 grams. As for software, the 360 N4 comes with the company’s own 360 OS. Other features include dual SIM dual standby, fingerprint sensor located at the back (unlocks in 0.4s) and 4G LTE support.
As for the overall design of the 360 N4, it’s similar to the 360 F4 budget phone announced. You will find 2.5D curved glass up front and a plastic body at the back. It isn’t the most attractive looking phone that we have seen at a cheap price, but it isn’t too bad either.
What’s really the highlight of the 360 N4 smartphone is its price tag. The company has priced the device at just 899 Yuan which comes to just $138, which is an amazing price for the specs that you get. The full netcom version retails for 999 Yuan ($154) and comes with additional network support. There will be three colors available, white, yellow and pink.
And guess what, there’s an IP7X version of the 360 N4 in the works which will reportedly be crowdfunded.
Overall, this seems to be one of the best deals that you can get at the moment. Helio X20 (slightly underclocked at 2GHz), 4GB RAM and 32GB storage in just $138 sounds like a great package!
