Vernee Upgrades CPU On The Apollo Flagship to Helio X25

by Joe 10

We all are waiting patiently for the Vernee Apollo smartphone, the first 6GB RAM phone from the company. Vernee had revealed a few months back that its flagship model was going to come with the Helio X20 chip on board. We have seen that this deca-core chip is a pretty good performer, however, last month, MediaTek released a faster variant of the chipset, the Helio X25 clocked at a higher frequency. Now, it looks like Vernee has decided to use this faster Mediatek Helio X25 chipset inside the upcoming Apollo flagship.


Rest of the specs seems to be the same as before. So, only the chipset has been upgraded to X25. Other specs as revealed by the company earlier include 6GB of RAM, 128GB of internal storage, and 5.5-inch 2K display. At the back, the phone will reportedly come with a 21MP Sony IMX230 camera sensor. Other features of the Apollo are metal unibody design, USB Type-C port and pressure sensitive display.

The launch of the device has been delayed to July. However, the Vernee Apollo Lite version will be launching sooner, sometime in June.

The company has also released a 3D video of the upcoming Apollo flagship. Check that out from down below.

    very interested in this Vernee company. hope this doesn’t turn out to be a case of “too goo to be true”

    Not exactly an upgrade when the phone hasn’t been released yet.

      lol … its called a speculative upgrade 😀

      and im loving your presence here man… these forums used to be sooo dull. i was the lone guy who commented on these deserted threads before !

  • Muhammad Yasir

    this is a brilliant cover up. im Sure MTK’s engineers thought of a 6GB ram after Q.Comm devices started springing up with the motherlode o’ ram. since x20 DOES NOT SUPPORT 4GB ram , they re purposed it , tweaked it and slightly modified it to support 6 Gigs o’ ram and AT THE SAME TIME boosted its clock rate a bit … to sway opinion that x25 is FASTER when its actually SPACIOUS (has support for more amount of ram space).

    and Vernee is using this excuse openly as well….

    how about that , @balcobomber25:disqus 😀 ?

      helio x20 does support up to 4gb of lpddr3.

      • Muhammad Yasir

        but Vernee has continually advertised 6gb with the X20 !

        yes , we ALL know x20 supports upto 4gb and NOT 6gb … which is why vernee have just avoided a MAJOR screw up , at least in my eyes !

    In your face Meizu… still can’t stop laughing with this ‘x25 exclusive’ pffff… Such a dissapointment with Pro 6… I’ll go for Galaxy S7 or will wait for similar chinese design with ESS Sabre DAC + TI/MAXIM op-amps…

    • metalboyz

      Mi note have sabre dac + dual ti op amp + dual adi op amp.

      • erictheking87

        Yeah, I know my friend, but I need something in size around ~142mmx70mm… so ~5.0″. All those 5.5″ phones and above are just way too big for me 🙂
