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. The company launched the QiKU Q Terra smartphone at an even in New Delhi today. The phone has been launched at two price points – for those planning to buy it directly online, the phone will cost Rs 21,999; but those willing to buy via the Q-Invite system, will get a discount of Rs 2000 making its sales price Rs 19,999. The phone will be selling exclusively on Gadgets360. Post the launch, we had some hands on time with the phone and here are our first impressions.
Design and Build
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.
