360 N4 turned out to be quite a powerful mid-ranger, coming with Helio X20 and 4GB of RAM on board. However, the company seems to be working on another version of this already powerful device and looks like the upgrades are going to be quite interesting.
First of all, the new device comes with the exact same design as the 360 N4 model that was announced a while back. However, the company has decided to upgrade the body material from plastic to metal. We just spotted this new version on TENAA in gold color. It comes with a round camera sensor, with dual LED flash and fingerprint sensor below it.
Even the specs are going to be the same as the 360 N4. So, you must be wondering, what’s so different about this device? Well, the huge difference is going to be the battery inside. This new model comes with a 4920mAh battery inside, which is one of the largest batteries we have seen on a mainstream smartphone. The thickness is also quite decent at 8.48mm! It is a bit weighted, as the metal body and large high-density battery increase the weight to 175.7 grams.
Rest of the specs are similar to the N4, which means it will feature the Helio X20 deca-core chip clocked at 2GHz inside with 4GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage and a 5.5-inch 1080p display. At the back, the phone will feature a 13MP Sony IMX258 sensor, while the front sports a 5MP shooter.
360 Mobiles has built a reputation of releasing aggressively priced handsets. The 360 N4 retails for just $138 (more about this model here), and given the slight bump up in specs and design, we can expect this phone to be released for around $150 – $170.
No official word on this particular version’s release yet, but looks like 360 Mobiles is going for a Meizu like strategy (Meizu will most likely announce the Meizu M3 Metal version on June 13). The company’s top-end flagship model, most likely called as the 360 Q4 also passed TENAA today. You can read more about that from here. [source]
