Vernee Apollo 2 can be the first phone with Helio X30 processor


On September 20th the Vernee company officially launched their new Vernee Mars model and during the launch event their partner Mediatek also introduced their upcoming Helio X30 processor for the first time.

According to the Mediatek product manager the Helio X30 will be based on 10nm technology, will have tri-cluster design and 10 cores, specifically 2 x Cortex-A73 (2,8 GHz) + 4 x Cortex-A53 (2,3 GHz) + 4 x Cortex-A35 (2,0 GHz). Compared to the Helio X20 the performance should get a major 43 % boost while the power consumption will be down by 53 %. The processor will be supporting up to 8 GB LPDDR4X RAM, UFC 2.1 flash storage and up to 28 Mpix resolution camera.

We have seen finally again the Vernee Apollo at the event and still quite excited about this Helio X25 equipped phone with 4 GB RAM, 64 GB ROM, 21 Mpix main camera with Sony IMX230 sensor and 2K display with 541ppi. Allegedly the Apollo should also have an additional accessory capable of shooting 360° videos.

    Really exciting, NOT. The end of 2017, more like 2018, Apollo 2 with no NFC… will be old specs by then. They’re more concerned with aesthetics and putting metal over everything than functionality and availability.

    A73 is only a two wide decoder. Aside from the smaller die size it isn’t much of an improvement

    The fact that the Apollo was going to launch 2 months ago and is still not happening is concerning, also the IMX230 is a great sensor but the competition is offering much better solutions at 299$.
