A new and interesting upper-midrange phone is feeding the rumors in the past few days: 360 N7. Even though it doesn’t come from one of the popular Chinese brands in the world, this handset will represent an important rival of the best Chinese mid-range phones out there, such as Oppo R15, Vivo X21, and Xiaomi Mi 6X. 360 Mobiles has just published a new image which confirms the launch date of the new device as well as its focus on artificial intelligence. According to the teaser, the phone will be able to think instead of the user and provide a very advanced user experience thanks to AI. Here is the text (translated from Chinese) that you can find in the image:
The essence of intelligence, not AI, think of what you think, is the future, together with the recall of pure carefree
The teaser also confirms the announcement date: 360 N7 will be official on May 8 at Beijing Film Director’s Center. The handset was recently spotted on the AnTuTu benchmark and it has scored about 130,000 points in the test made on the platform. The score is consistent with the ones obtained by smartphones powered by the Snapdragon 660 SoC. 360 N7 is expected to come with the octa-core Helio P60 chipset, which is actually the best SoC by MediaTek with a max clock frequency of 2 GHz.
The processor, manufactured with a 12 nm production process, will be supported by 6 GB of RAM and 64 or even 128 GB of internal storage depending on the variant. 360 N7 is said to sport a 5.99-inch Full HD+ display with an 18:9 aspect ratio and a dual camera setup on its rear side. Its design should be entirely made of metal just like most of the other mid-rangers, while the battery should support Pump Express technology (18W fast charging). According to reports, the device should be launched in the Chinese market with a price tag of about $200.
