First rugged model from the Vernee brand, the Vernee Active is finally out in the presales and from now on to December 18th you can get it in the presales with a $40 discount, making the phone just $279.99.
Vernee Active is a bit of a new take on the rugged formula, with the design gravitating more towards the traditional phone looks instead of the rugged tank rubber design. It’s fairly slimmer and lighter than the ordinary rugged piece and has the fashionable dual 2.5D curve design, but that doesn’t mean they are giving up on the real rugged qualities either.
The back case of Vernee Active is made of Kevlar, making it quite fairly study and scratch or drop resistant. Of course the rugged IP68 certification is also present so the phone is waterproof with up to 30 minutes in 1.5m deep water and 99% dust and silt proof.
The hardware is also pretty solid with slightly above the average rugged specifications sporting Helio P25 octa-core processor, 6 GB RAM + 128 GB of internal storage, 5,5-inch JDI Incell display with FullHD 1920×1080 pixel resolution, Sony IMX258 13MP rear camera, 4200 mAh battery, USB Type-C port or Android 7.0 + VOS 1.0 as the OS.
You can also check out quite interesting comparison between the Vernee Active and the CAT S60 with the Vernee piece pulling ahead in many aspects including the looks and the price point.
