Vernee Apollo 2 with MTK Helio X30 Hands-On from MWC 2018

Vernee Apollo 2

Finally, we had a first look at the much awaited Vernee Apollo 2 flagship phone which is set to be released in the following weeks with some quite impressive hardware.

Vernee Apollo 2

The Vernee Apollo 2 does indeed come with a powerful MediaTek Helio X30 deca-core CPU along with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage, which is what a flagship – on the MediaTek side – should pack.

The Apollo 2 is also a flagship as far as design goes, with a beautiful and bright 5.99-inch display sporting an 18:9 aspect ratio and Full HD+ resolution. Albeit in photos bezels don’t look that thin, we’ve to say that in person they do look thin, mostly talking about the top and bottom ones. It really feels like holding a flagship from Honor or the likes.

      vernee?? Never again! Decently looking devices with NO support what so ever. vernee do NOT care about their customers. I bought their flagship Apollo, more than one year ago. Despite their promisses they never suplied software updates 😤

      Well, it’s your fault for trusting a new Chinese OEM in the first place. I think the only good device they’ve made was the Thor, and sharing the full source code for it made it interesting for developers to make some custom roms for, but even for that phone there were two revisions and the source code didn’t cover many of the changes done in the second revision.
      Next time you’ll just stick with something more tested and trusted like Xiaomi and even if they don’t update their devices for a long time, there are bound to be custom roms out for their phones within 6-9 months after their release.

      It’s not outdated. GPU is almost as fast as A530 & MALI G71’s found on both Equnos and HiSilicon… Pricing is what will make or brake it tho I dislike the OEM.

      well, nice to hear. maybe it can be the dark horse in today’s market !

      i share the view on the OEM, vernee haven’t impressed much since inception.

      this year could very well decide their fate.

    Saw a youtube video hands on of it. Apollo 2 at the event was installed with android 7.0
    So can customers trust them when they claim it got android 8.1?
    It looks nice but Vernee got a long way before they will be a trusted brand.
