Vernee Apollo’s upgraded to be powered by Helio X25 CPU!


With the Vernee Thor model finally launched and with shipments already on the way to customers the Vernee’s focus shifts towards the more interesting high-end model Vernee Apollo. After all the company considers it as their most important product for 2016 so makes perfect sense.

We already know that the Apollo should feature 5.5-inch display with 2K resolution and probably even Force Touch 3D technology, hefty 6 GB RAM and 128 GB of storage, main 21 MPix camera with Sony IMX230 sensor, selfie 8 MPix cam, USB Type-C, fingerprint scanner and full metal body. All of those specs have been announced roughly a month ago, but with still plenty of time until the release there are always possibilities of a change or rather an upgrade.

And exactly one of the announced upgrades got reported today, seems like that the Vernee Apollo is not going to be sporting the deca-core Mediatek Helio X20 but rather the higher clocked version Helio X25. While it’s not an extremely significant upgrade, it’s still a positive one worth mentioning. If all goes according to the plan the Vernee Apollo should see the launch around July and the Apollo Lite version even somewhere in June.

        By the spec’s on paper yes it is.

          Same x25, metal body, camera sensor, finger print, force touch. Extra RAM and pixels? that doesn’t look like a big deal.

      It could be but until it’s released we can’t say either way. What we can say is it is better than nearly every Elephone and Ulefone, even if it never releases.

      On the lite version they said it was something around 3100mah

        Does the light have FHD… otherwise it will be a total let down….

          They said it’s going to be a fhd igzo screen (there was a post here on gizchina not long time ago)

            Well if I see the first Reviews of the other VERNEE phone I must say I have no hopes for this one. Battery is way to small, even for FHD, and it may well lack other features I like as well.

            too bad.

      Hahhah, I was just about to post the same thing! 🙂 Litterally a few minutes ago it hit me how much it looks like the Mate 8: The back, the bottom side (Check out the holes next to the usb porty), the general shape of the device, even the on-screen buttons: Yep, definitely a clone 🙂 http://www.gsmarena.com/huawei_mate_8-pictures-7239.php

        Most phone look the same to me these days. Slim to slightly thicker bricks.

        May 11, 2016

        It is for me. I have audio equipment that is connected by NFC. There are other feature of NFC I want too.

    I’m ready to applaud Vernee if they manage to launch all those advertised products, but honestly, I think this will be another Elephone Vowney and should finally arrive in the market by December.

    • MattD
      May 10, 2016

      So, only 5 month of delay over the announced release?! Down at elephone they would call it “anticipation” or something lol

      • balcobomber25
        May 10, 2016

        5 months? The Vowney was delayed nearly 9 months. For Elephone 5 months would be an improvement.
