Vernee Active was announced about 2 months ago and has silently made its way to the market, as the company didn’t advertise it all that much, despite the fact that it actually is the company’s flagship right now. Despite the flagship level configuration and design, it is also rated as an IP68 waterproof and dustproof device. Surely, it is among the first choices when it comes to rugged smartphones and it costs just $279.99.
The Active is equipped with Helio P25 Octa-core SoC that compared to the previous generation chip it has a performance increase of 25% and power consumption reduced by 30%. The high-end configuration together with the deeply optimized VOS 1.0 system which is based on Android 7 gives the Active a fast and smooth performance as well as good multitasking capabilities.
From the testing result of AndroBench, we can see that the Sequential Read speed of Vernee Active is 263.11 MB/s, and Sequential Write speed is 224.42MB/s. It is a flagship-grade score but Vernee Active is more cost-effective than other flagships.
The rest of the specs include a 5.5″ JDI InCell FHD display with Gorilla Glass on top and a 13MP Sony rear camera. The selfie shooter comes at 8MP and there is a 4200mAh big battery with 9V/2A USB Type-C fast charging technology and support for 28 network Bands for global use.
Active is not only a flagship phone with high configuration but also a great-looking rugged phone. It is rated at IP68 so it can stay in 1.5 meters deep water for 30 minutes. Also, it has an excellent sealing treatment which can prevent the silt from coming inside and reaches 99% dustproofing. Lastly, it is drop-proof and scratchproof. You can get it for just $279.99 at the Vernee official shop on Aliexpress.
