The company will start shipping their handsets to India and Indonesia later this year. Distribution to additional countries including Brazil, Russia and Turkey, will follow next.

This flagship will be the first in a series of game-changing devices we will launch in the coming few months.”

Talking about the future of QiKU’s media presence, Ashish Somvanshi, National Head- Digital Marketing, QiKU- India said, “Transforming a brand into a socially responsible leader doesn't happen overnight by simply writing new marketing and advertising strategies.
