A week ago, HiSense announced the HiSense F40 and the KingKong 6. Today, the company launched the two devices in the Chinese market.
Here are the prices of the models: Hisense F40 4GB+128GB - CNY 1999 (~US$284) Hisense F40 6GB+128GB - CNY 2499 (~US$355.5) Hisense KingKong 6 4GB+128GB - CNY 1999 (~US$284) Hisense KingKong 6 6GB+128GB - CNY 2499 (~US$355.5)
Just like their prices, the two models are pretty identical in some specs. Both have one and the same display a 6.517-inch IPS unit with a resolution of 720 x 1600 pixels. They also share one and the same chipset - a MediaTek Helio P60 one with a 2GHz octa-core CPU and a tri-core Mali-G72 GPU clocked at 800MHz. Both models have 4GB/6GB RAM versions and 128GB/256GB storage variants.
The front cameras are identical as well - 8MP shooters, each residing in a waterdrop notch. The rear camera department is slightly different. The HiSense F40 has a 13MP+8MP+2MP+2MP combo, while the HiSense KingKong 6 omits the ultra-wide 8MP unit that has a 120-degree viewing angle.
As long as it concerns the differences, the HiSense F40 packs a 5000 mAh battery and an infrared sensor placed between the rear camera sensors. It detects hidden infrared cameras in a room.
The HiSense KingKong 6 has a 5510 mAh battery and arrives with a battery pack module with a 4500 mAh capacity to offer a total of 10010 mAh power.
The module is attached to the back of the handset via magnetic pins. In a similar fashion to Doogee's modular smartphones - the S90, S90 Pro and Oukitel K7000.
