The Chinese company Vernee seems to be enjoying its fair share of spotlight, thanks to its two new models, namely the Vernee Apollo and the Vernee Thor. The former model is going to be the company’s high-end product, featuring 6GB of RAM and Helio X20 under the hood. As for the Vernee Thor, this particular phone will be a mid-range offering and will be announced in partnership with Uber.
The company is, in fact, calling the Thor as a Uber Featured smartphone, but we are still not clear what to expect from this kind of cooperation. Now, new images of the Vernee Thor have been released, which gives us a very good look at the phone’s design.
To be honest, for a $129.99 device, the phone’s design does look good. The market is flooded with plastic and even metal body smartphones at this price, so its good to see something different. The Vernee Thor will come with a baby skin rubber paint on the back, and in black color, the overall finish looks different. However, it remains to be seen whether the phone will feel good in our hands. Up front, the company has reportedly coated the screen with some kind of high-grade anti-fingerprint oil. You also get 2.5D glass on top of the display.
As for the specs, for $129.99, the Vernee Thor features mid-range hardware. The phone comes with a 5-inch HD on-cell display with 2.5D glass. Under the hood, it is powered by the octa-core MT6753 64-bit processor with 3GB of RAM and 16GB of expandable storage. There will be a 13MP camera at the back and a 5MP shooter up front. Battery may be a bit small with 2800mAh capacity, but considering the small display and the fact that the phone supports fast charging at 5V 2A, it should be enough for a normal user.
The cherry on top is the Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS that ships right out of the box. The company is expected to release the phone in April. Stay tuned for more details in the coming days.
