360 Mobiles has announced a brand new phone today in China. After weeks of waiting, the 360 N7 is now official and it packs some really impressive features.
360 N7 Design
The N7 is not unlike any phone we haven’t seen before with respect to design. It isn’t breathtaking but it isn’t bad either. It is just the familiar metal back with glass front we have seen on lots of other phones. The phone comes in two color variants – Moonlight White and Graphite Black and both have a CNC finish.
However, there is a nice little addition to the white variant and that is the color power button. Rather than painting it white like the volume controls, it is bright red and it nicely pops out against the rest of the body.
360 N7 Specs
What the N7 misses out on in terms of design, it makes up for it in specs. The phone, surprisingly, comes with a Snapdragon 660 processor and not Helio P60 or Snapdragon 636 as we expected. This is the most powerful mid-range chip at the moment and you can be sure it will deliver.
There is 6GB of RAM and 64GB/128GB of storage. The display is a 5.99” screen with an 18:9 aspect ratio and a resolution of 2160 x 1080. There is 2.5D glass covering the display but we can’t confirm if it is Gorilla Glass.
The 360 N7 packs dual rear cameras in a 16MP f/2.0 + 2MP configuration. It has PDAF and an LED flash. The front-facing camera is an 8MP f/2.2 sensor with face beauty optimizations.
360 Mobiles hasn’t put all that processing power in there for fun. The phone is targeted at those who enjoy playing mobile games and for long periods. That explains why the 360 N7 has a massive 5,030mAh battery. It also has support for Quick Charge 3.0 (9V/2A fast charging).
The phone runs Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box with 360’s own UI and software tweaks. There are additional features like Hybrid Engine 2.0, Game Accelerator 2.0, encryption and locking features.
360 N7 Price
The 360 N7 is priced at ¥1699 (~$267) for the 64GB model and ¥1899 ($298) for the 128GB version. It is available on JD.com but only in Graphite Black for now.
