Remember Vernee, the new kid in the market from Shenzen, China, who got quite the attention from the media because of its 6GB RAM smartphone, the Vernee Apollo?

Well, it looks like this high-tech company is not just working on its flagship product, the Apollo. The company is also working on a mid-range smartphone called as the Vernee Thor, and it’s going to be a unique device because it will be a Uber-featured smartphone.

According to the latest information, Vernee and Uber have reportedly entered into some kind of cooperation to release a brand new “Uber-featured” smartphone. Now, we are not entirely sure how Uber comes into this picture, but it is said that the phone will deliver smooth experience as fast as lightning (hence the name THOR) which is synonymous with Uber’s service and reliability.

As for the phone itself, the Vernee Thor will feature mid-range specs with software optimizations. The phone will feature a sleek, smooth and curved design with rubber paint. The first renders of the device are already included in the post.

As for the specs, the Vernee Thor is said to come with a 5-inch HD On-cell display with Mediatek’s MT6753 octa-core chipset under the hood. There will be 3GB of RAM inside with 16GB of internal storage, further expandable up to 128GB via MicroSD card slot.

At the back, the Vernee Thor will feature a 13MP camera while up front, a 5MP Shooter. Detailed information about the camera specs are not yet available. Finally, inside, the phone will come with a 2800mAh battery, which should be fine, considering the Cortex A53 powered processor and the low-power consuming 5-inch 720p screen.

Vernee is yet to specify an exact release date for the Vernee Thor, but expect a launch sometime in April. Since its partnership with Uber, you can expect the app to come pre-installed with the device. But we are not yet sure about the specifics of the agreement, so we better wait for more details from the company.
