Chinese smartphone maker Qiku has launched the Q Terra mobile phone priced at ₹21,999, in India. Qiku, a joint venture between telecommunications equipment manufacturer Coolpad Group and global Internet company Qihoo 360 Technology, announced that the Q Terra will be like the smartphones offered by Xiaomi and OnePlus packed with quality features but don't cost an arm and a leg. QiKU is the latest Chinese smartphone to have entered the Indian market. QiKU is a joint venture between Coolpad and QiKU 360 which is a software company known for its security software in China. "We truly believe that Indian consumers are becoming evolved users of smartphones and need a premium experience. With QiKU Terra, we are essentially offering the best in class experience at an affordable price,” says Varun Sharma, the CEO of Qiku India.
The QiKU Q Terra belongs to the phablet category, thanks to the 6 inch display. But due to a good body to screen ratio, it manages to keep the size of the phone under check. It comes with a unibody metal build which comprises an alloy of Magnesium and aluminium. It measures 3.6mm on its thinnest edge but due to the curved back design measures 8.6mm thick. It weighs around 186 grams and we liked the weight distribution of the phone. On the rear side you have the dual 13MP cameras and just below them there is the finger print scanner. The QiKU Q Terra has an interesting design and the chrome finishes around the chamfered edges and the fingerprint scanner ads an elegant touch. There are a lot of 2K display phones these days, but QiKU has decided to go with a 6-inch full HD IPS panel with a Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection atop it.
The Q Terra houses the hexa core Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 chipset which has the Adreno 418 GPU. This is paired with 3GB of RAM and comes with 16GB storage. QiKU gives you the option to expand the storage to 128GB using the microSD card slot present on the left hand side. The phone comes with a dual SIM (microSIM + nanoSIM) card slot and can take in a 4G LTE card. Apart from this you have WiFi 802.11n, Bluetooth 4.1, GPS with AGPS. It does not have FM radio which may be a bummer for some buyers.
The QiKU Q Terra runs on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop OS but comes with the 360 OS interface. QiKU claims that it offers a lot of the features present on Android Marshmallow through its proprietary OS has alternatives for Doze mode (Standby+), App Standby (Freezer), App Permission (Authority Manager) and so on. The QiKU Q Terra houses a 3700mAh T- shaped battery which is a significant capacity.
QiKU Q Tera comes with an almost bezel-less 6inch screen (IPS FHD display ), twin (dual-camera) rear cameras of 13MP each and an 8MP front camera.
