On August 21, 360 Mobile will hold a new press conference where it will launch a new upper-midrange phone: 360 N7 Pro. Four days ahead of the official launch, the CEO of the Chinese company has published a post on the microblogging platform Weibo in which he gives details about the price of the upcoming device. According to CEO Li Kaixin, the handset will be the only 360 phone in the market to cost more than 2000 Yuan. In case you do not know, 2000 Yuan roughly translates into about $255 at the actual change. It will be costlier than other devices by this company, but at that price 360 N7 Pro will still remain a good deal if we consider what it will offer in terms of specifications.
Also, note that the variant to cost more than 2000 Yuan is said to be the most powerful configuration of the phone. Previously, Li Kaixin has already confirmed that this device will sport the new octa-core Snapdragon 710 chipset by Qualcomm. It is not a flagship SoC, but it is the only member of the new series of upper-midrange chipsets launched by the San Diego-based chipmaker. So, you can consider it the best midrange SoC by Qualcomm and the best processor if we exclude the Snapdragon 8xx series.
Snapdragon 710 is an octa-core SoC composed of two Kryo 360 high-performance cores (based on Cortex A75 CPUs) clocked at 2.2 GHz and six Kryo 360 low power custom cores (based on Cortex A55) running at a max frequency of 1.7 GHz, as well as an Adreno 616 GPU which guarantees 35 percent better graphics performance. According to Qualcomm, the chipset will also provide 25 percent better performance than the Snapdragon 660. Further, on the 360 N7 Pro the Snapdragon 710 will be paired with whopping 6 GB of RAM. Among the other rumored specs, there is a 6-inch (or above) display with a Full HD+ resolution.
