I wouldn't be surprised if it is already magnetic.
That would be really nice, it might spark up the movement for kilo/kibi to be an official event again.
Although I hope they would do a center/edge magnet scheme, since there's never much contact between corners or corner/edge in kilominxes.

There's a gap between the corners, yes, but the corner/edge contact in a kilominx is exactly the same as in a megaminx. It's only a question of whether there's space in the pieces to place the magnets.

New 2x2 Megaminx from QiYi! Definitely looks promising!

Immediately reminded me of the ShengShou Kilominx. I'm wondering if it will have the same design. I honestly hope not, but we'll see. I wonder if it will come in stickerless eventually.

I couldn't upload a photo as the screenshots were too big, so I have uploaded a link to the instagram post below.
I'm very excited for this one, my shengshou is actually pretty good compared to other kibiminxes I have tried but It's still pretty bad compared to megaminx hardware. Maybe this one could replace my main!

Why can't it just be magnetized like a 2x2?
Consider two adjacent corner pieces; the internal sides that face each other are not parallel (remember, it's a dodecahedron, not a cube), so unless you can place the magnets at the very edge and the edge pieces are very thin, the magnets will be separated by a large distance and hence have a much smaller effect (less added stability, less alignment snap).

I guess that makes sense but you could surely just use stronger magnets at the very tip of the edge and it would make it a whole lot easier than trying to squeeze magnets into the edges inside. I have noticed on alot of cubes recently that the magnets are very small (like 3x1) and they still aren't weak.

I, for one, would be extremely surprised.

Perhaps! With corner-corner magnetisation, there would be 10 pairs of magnets holding the layer in, so 3×1 ought to be strong enough. (The Galaxy v2 M already uses 3×1 and it has only 5 pairs of magnets per layer; it also has thinned plastic, though, so it's not directly comparable.)

Yep... Shengshou decided to go at it again

The design looks a bit like Gan's piece design on their stickered cubes.
edit: it looks a lot like Gan's design, the magnets are looking exactly like Gan's.

It also looks like a cheap Valk box

Just saw The Cubicle's Everyone Solves on the RS3m 2020. All the testers seemed to agree that it is a contender for the best cube under 10 dollars. They also had Yusheng Du on as a guest and it is his new main.

More info about the QiYi kilo is out on their Instagram. It seems like it turns okay, but not a significant amount better than my meilong. We’ll have to wait and check out some reviews of it, because I don’t want to spend another weekend magnetizing another kilominx (it’s a long painful process).

yj yulong v2 m 50mm really good for oh
That doesn't really belong in this thread and doesn't any thing to the discussion

#### Nmile7300

But it was already mentioned multiple times in this thread and saying it is good for OH is not relevant to the discussion
