Even though it’s undeniable that Vernee Apollo is coming way later than expected and probably missed a much better chance to make a real dent in the market it’s still going to be one hell of a smartphone. Company is trying to present the phone as “first MTK VR smartphone” due to the 2K display resolution and Helio X25 inside, but it can offer more than that.
Apollo comes with 5,5-inch display with 2K resolution, deca-core Helio X25 processor clocked at 2,5 GHz, 4 GB RAM, 64 GB of storage, 21 Mpix Sony IMX230 rear camera with PDAF support, 8 Mpix front camera with wide angle coverage and 3180 mAh battery capacity with fast charge support. Now imagine this phone being available half a year ago right after the reveal…
Besides the solid hardware Vernee Apollo can offer also some pretty good metal design and the arc body has 98 % coverage and is made using advanced CNC technology and sandblasting surface treatment. Check the batch of pictures lying around for a better idea about that.
Presales of Vernee Apollo are currently up with a $299 price so fairly high. Shipments should start mid-December so Vernee fans can look forward to finally getting the brand’s flagship model soon.
