Vernee Apollo Finally Launching This Month: First MTK VR Flagship

by Joel 8

We first heard about the Vernee Apollo flagship earlier this year, but news about the phone died down in the past few months. However, Vernee has finally announced that the Vernee Apollo flagship will be unveiled this month and it will go on sale from December.

We already know a lot about the Apollo, but here’s a recap of the specs of the device. The flagship will feature MediaTek’s Helio X25 deca-core chipset clocked at 2.5GHz with Mali-T880 GPU. We are still unsure of the RAM inside, but a 6GB RAM option at launch. There should be 64GB of eMMC storage on board as well.

The Vernee Apollo is being called as the first Mediatek VR flagship, mainly because it will come with a high resolution of 2560x1440px (2K) with 541 ppi pixel density, making it ideal for using in VR headsets. This could also mean that Vernee may release a VR headset of its own soon, but we are not quite sure about it. As for the rear camera, the phone should come with a 20MP Sony IMX230 sensor.


The exact price of the Vernee Apollo is still not known, but the company is known for pricing its devices reasonably, so we can expect the same with its upcoming release. Earlier, it was said that the phone would go on sale for around $399, but we are waiting for official confirmation from the company.

Stay tuned for more updates on the Apollo flagship.
