    • johala02

      They showed the Apollo One at the place where the Vernee event was. Was some french youtube videos with some “hands on” of it.

    Any helio powered phones will get nice boost by helio x30/x35 SoCs, doesn’t stand chance against SD830, but still cost much less.

      why ?
      i think the x30 will FINALLY be able to give 830 a run for the money …
      remember how the 6752 beat the SD 810
