Vernee Apollo Lite will have 3180 mAh battery with fast charge Pump Express 3.0 support


Alongside the full fledged Vernee Apollo model  there is going to be the slightly watered down Lite version, but so far not much exact information had been released about it.

vernee-apollo-lite

But what we know something about is the battery, which is going to pack 3180 mAh capacity with the Pump Express 3.0 support. That should offer charging from 0 to 75 percent in just 30 minutes. Apollo Lite’s body should be with full metal build with brushed metal design and chamfered edges.

Other alleged  specs include 5,5-inch FullHD display, Mediatek Helio X20 processor, 4 GB RAM and 32 GB of storage. Main rear camera is going to feature 16 Mpix sensor and the front one 5 Mpix one. The phone shouldn’t be missing also USB type-C connector, dual SIM hybrid slot and pre-installed Android 6.0 Marshmallow.

    it shows just how hard some of these manufacturers are pushing it, when the ‘lite’ version pretty much equals or exceeds current big name flagships in many aspects.

    the quick charge is very important to big screen now, it’s a nice shot to Vernee Apollo Lite to support this. want to know how’s the performance of the charging speed of it.

    • balcobomber25

      Quick charge makes me care less and less about battery size.

        it depends,my friend, it’s not convenient when you are in travel. i prefer a big battery phone because it’s easy to me to to forget get my phone charged when i focus on working mostly

        • balcobomber25
          April 22, 2016

          As long as my phone can last me a full day on the battery I am good. i don’t need anymore than that

    They’re going hard mode into marketing, but I wonder if we’ll get to see any of those apollos anytime soon or if they’ll delay until winter (it looks like we won’t see any x20 from smaller companies before the end of summer anyway)

    • Tonyle
      April 22, 2016

      don’t be so upset to these brands,man,
      you have no idea how many powerful smartphone manufactures in China, newly founded brands not mean small companies all the time, hope we are lucky ,haha

      • MattD
        April 22, 2016

        Don’t get me wrong: I’m not upset at all, my own was a legit (rhetorical) question!

      I think the X20 will be a lot closer to the X10, We’ll start to see the smaller brands release X20 phones toward the middle to end of the year.

  5. Maksim
    April 22, 2016

    Vernee publicity 6GB RAM it? A lie can not continue? Because the X20 does not support 6GB RAM. And Vernee as a mobile phone manufacturing company, Vernee even propaganda so ridiculous things, so that every news Vernee have to see is false, even doubt their products. Aha!
    Vernee loyal fans Tonly Where is it?Aha Aha!

      You were explained several times how easy it is to make it work with 6GB of RAM. Will you bark it all back when they release it?

      Your continued hounding on this is getting old. As Multiple people have pointed out to you, including Steve B below, the Thor and Apollo were both launch devices for Mediatek. Meaning they worked with Mediatek on those phones.

    Some retailers already listed it at 229 usd..
    It would be much better choice over ulefone future..

    • balcobomber25
      April 22, 2016

      It would be a better choice than a lot of phones at that price. Just need to wait for some reviews of this brand.

    • Assefa Hanson
      April 22, 2016

      which retailer? what i thik bit ulefone in the bum is the bezel-less display which is expensive to make and the future taking some time to release now cheaper better chipped phones exists, only thing that might give this to ulefone is they are a more established brand relative to vernee but even so they arent super great

      • tauerman

        What expensive bezel-less?
        If you want bezel-less, you can buy sharp aquos crystal for under 150usd right now.

        • Assefa Hanson
          April 22, 2016

          the screen itself is expensive, not taking into acount the overall phone, look at this way a highend soc is 60$ which is not alot of money on its own, argueably BUT the cost for a bezel-less screen ALONE in it self is still expensive lets say a regular screen is 5$ bezel-less would be 15$

    • balcobomber25

      According to who? Did they release the bands yet?

      • greg
        April 22, 2016

        Some retail shops like Gea..est , only 3G: WCDMA 900/2100MHz and
        4G: FDD-LTE 800/1800/2100/2600MHz , same with Thor

        • balcobomber25
          April 22, 2016

          The Thor bands have been released by Vernee and they are pathetic for network coverage. But I would never trust a resellers specs until it is confirmed by the company. Resellers will often take a guess on specs of unreleased phones and then update them once the phone is released. I am guessing (and I could be wrong) that their flagship Apollo line will have better coverage.
