QiKU, a joint venture between Chinese Internet company Qihoo 360 and handset maker Coolpad, will launch its first smartphone Qiku Q Terra in India on November 27, the company told Gadgets 360.
With the Q Terra, QiKU will become the latest Chinese company to enter the Indian market. Chinese smartphone manufacturer Coolpad debuted in India in May earlier this year with the launch of the entry-level Dazen 1, and the high-end Dazen X7.
The Qiku Q Terra offers high-end specifications with a fingerprint sensor. It sports a 6-inch full-HD (1080x1920) IPS display with a pixel density of 386ppi. It is powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon MSM8992 808 SoC clocked at 2GHz with Adreno 418 GPU, 3GB of RAM, and 16GB of internal storage with support for additional storage up to 128GB using a microSD card.
On the photography front, the QiKU Terra sports dual 13-megapixel rear cameras with dual-tone LED flash, and features like 'Fast Focus', geo-tagging, and support for 4K video recording. There's an 8-megapixel front facing camera with f/2.4 aperture also on board, capable of shooting videos in full-HD resolution. The dual-SIM capable handset (Micro-SIM and Nano-SIM) supports 4G LTE, Bluetooth 4.1, Wi-Fi, and other standard connectivity features. It bears a 3700mAh battery with support for faster charging.
The handset runs Android 5.1 Lollipop-based Qihoo 360 OS with additional security features. The company will reveal the retail price of the handset at the event on Friday.
