The 360 N5 smartphone will be announced on February 22nd, the company has just announced. 360 Mobiles’ CEO, Lee Soon, has released an official teaser on his Weibo (Chinese social network) page, and that teaser not only confirms that the 360 N5 is coming, but also shares its release date. The 360 N5 will be a rather interesting smartphone in terms of specs, and thanks to its certification which took place recently, we do have quite some information about not only its specifications, but also its design, read on.
The 360 N5 will be made out of metal, and it will sport a fingerprint scanner on its back, right below the camera sensor and the LED flash. It seems like the device will sport a home button below its display, as you can see, there’s a red circle placed below the phone’s display, similar to the ones we’ve been seeing on ZTE’s devices for years now. Both the power / lock and volume rocker keys of this smartphone will be placed on its right-hand side, and the device isn’t exactly groundbreaking in terms of the design, we’ve seen similarly-designed smartphones in the past, quite a few of them actually. If you like having a 3.5mm headphone jack on your smartphones, then you’re in luck, the 360 N5 will sport a 3.5mm headphone jack at the top, as you can see in one of the provided images.
Now, if TENAA’s (China’s equivalent to the FCC) listing is to be believed, and it usually is, the 360 N5 will sport a 5.5-inch fullHD (1920 x 1080) display, along with 6GB of RAM and 32GB of native storage (expandable up to 128GB via a microSD card). The device will be fueled by the Snapdragon 653 64-bit octa-core processor, and a 3,290mAh battery will be included on the inside. Android 6.0 Marshmallow will come pre-installed on this smartphone, with 360 Mobiles’ OS on top of it. If the latest rumors are to be believed, this smartphone will cost 2,000 Yuan ($290), though nothing has been confirmed just yet. There you have it, the 360 N5 is coming soon, and we’ll have far more info once the company releases this smartphone.
