QiKU Internet Network Scientific (Shenzhen) Co., Ltd. is a Chinese smartphone manufacturer headquartered in Shenzhen, Guangdong.[1] The manufacturer is a joint venture between Chinese internet company Qihoo 360 and telecommunications equipment manufacturer Coolpad.[1]

360 OS operating system[edit]

QiKU’s proprietary Android-based operating system is the result of cooperation between Coolpad and Qihoo.[2] The features of 360 OS include Icebox to freeze unused apps, deep cleaning to clear hidden third-party software and an enhanced performance mode that optimizes device performance basis usage.[2]

Products[edit]

QiKU launched Coolpad's Dazen brand of phones in June 2015—Dazen 1,[3] and Dazen X7,[4] running an indigenous interface in the 360 OS. The phones were launched via India’s e-commerce site Snapdeal. The Dazen 1 soon became the top-selling handset on Snapdeal, shipping over 100,000 phones in India.[5] On August 26, 2015, QiKU launched two new smartphones, QiKU Terra[6] and QiKU Luna,[7] in China. They also launched Qiku Terra 810 in India and did the first sale on NDTV Gadget 360 where they went out of stock in one hour.[8]
