Although Vernee Apollo is the real flagship smartphone of the company, its slightly toned down brother, the Vernee Apollo Lite is no slouch and comes with pretty powerful specifications as well. The company has been throwing some light on the phone’s body and specs for the past few weeks and now, Vernee has revealed yet another interesting feature of the Apollo Lite smartphone. The company confirms today that the Vernee Apollo Lite comes with the Samsung S5K3P3 sensor.

The company is touting the device as the first Helio X20 powered smartphone in the market with this camera sensor on board. Nothing special about this claim, but still it will interesting to see how well the camera performs on the device. This Samsung ISOCELL sensor comes with 1.0μm pixels with 16MP and supports PDAF, 4K video recording. Moreover, it is just 5mm thick, ensuring that the unit won’t be protruding out of the body.

    “now the company reveals that the launch has been delayed to June.”

      Hopefully they delayed it so that its perfect. I’d rather wait for a better product than get rushed crap.

    Can we assume that they will include real OIS? Can you check Joel? To me that is a bigger deal than pdaf and I would hate to order it in advance just to find out it is the crappy EIS we see on many samsung sensors.

      I ll just confirm with the company and let you know soon.

        Hi Joe,
        Many thanks for checking! A bit of a shame, but for 200$ I can understand that it is not included.

        If it instead has EIS then it will depend more on the software and SOC support. Maybe the Helio X20 has enough umpf to smoothen out any shaking. I’ll keep my pre-order, but will be looking more closely for a review on this site ☺
        Regards Andreas
