Vernee Apollo with Helio X25 will threaten Xiaomi Redmi Pro

by Dimitris Economou 15

Deca-core configuration has gained a lot attention since the release of the Xiaomi Redmi Pro last week. But long before that, many smartphone makers have launched or announced their 10-cores flagships. Among those models is the Vernee’s coming flagship – Vernee Apollo. Vernee Apollo was showcased in MTK Helio X20 launch event in March of this year. So it is a surprise that this monster will be powered by Helio X25, instead of previously released Helio X20.

Five months after the announcement of Apollo, Vernee released another breaking news. It will redesign the shape of the back cover and make it more comfortable to hold. Still, the CNC cutting technology and Nano Molding technology are both adopted to keep the back intact and ensure the exquisite appearance. And the all-new anodizing method seems to redefine the metal feel and showcases the unique insights Vernee has into the metal unibody.

Previously, rumors were circulating that Vernee Apollo might be priced at $399.99 but that remains to be seen. Among those deca-core smartphones, Vernee Apollo is the only one sporting 2K resolution display. With the decent specs, clean design, and high class craftmanship this model will surely be competitive in the smartphone market in the next half of 2016.

We hope to hear more about the device, especially its release date soon.

      I don’t think so. A Vernee device at $400 is far from an ad.

    Finally, at least they said SOMETHING about it.

    I doubt it will have any impact on the Redmi Pro, that’s not to say it won’t be a good phone but the Vernee name isn’t anywhere close to as strong as the Xiaomi name. Anyone who is interested in the Redmi Pro are going to get the Redmi Pro. Most people who are trying to decide between the two will go with the brand name they actually know.

      it’s a little different that Vernee claims they are specific to Euro, but Xiaomi mainly focused on China and India.

      • balcobomber25

        Even in Europe it will have little effect on Xiaomi.

    Why pay $400 for a Vernee if I can get a OP3 for the same price ?

    • Redarmor35

      Good point.

    • quodvadis

      Open source kernel and micro sd slot. at that price, I’d get neither though, rip-off.

  • Hakim Farouk

    Nah, I wouldn’t pay 399 for this.

  • Lubemark

    I see that Vernee joined the paper launch club: Elephone would be proud of it .

    • Floans

      we should be hopeful they would not be like Elephone

  • Lubemark

    Five month ago they announced 6 GB ram Apollo powered with Helio X20. It was a nonsense because Helio X20 can’t use 6 GB of RAM. Helio X25 can but is Meizu exclusive for six month…..

    • Dimitris

      Not true, other devices have Helio X25, like Le Eco Le2 Pro.
