Vernee Apollo 2 leaked, will probably feature all-screen design and Helio X30

by Dimitris Economou 8

The Vernee Apollo was warmly welcomed by many customers. Recently, a poster published on the Vernee official Facebook page that said the Apollo 2 is coming. And now, information from inside the company revealed a new poster showing the design of the upcoming model. Besides the Helio X30 SoC, it will sport an 18:9 all screen-design as well.

From the exposure poster, we can see that the Apollo 2 has a large screen-to-body ratio, and catch up with the Samsung Galaxy Note 8. The very obvious 2.5D curve design may mean that it will use the same Super AMOLED curve screen as Samsung. According to the insider, the Apollo 2 will have an all-metal phone body design, fingerprint sensor at the back, and dual rear camera with portrait mode support.

Before this information, there were rumors that the Vernee Apollo 2 will be equipped with Helio X30 and 8GB RAM as well as 256GB of internal storage. If we dare to make a guess, judging by the price of the original Apollo, the Apollo 2 shouldn’t be more than $400, or even cheaper. According to Vernee information on Facebook, the device will be announced on MWC 2018, so we will find out soon enough.

    If they can deliver a Helio X30 device under 300 dollars they will gain a lot of customers.

      Or if cost 300 dollars but has all the global bands, the win factor would be way bigger.

    Weren’t they planning to release this phone in Spring of 2017? Personally, I’d love to see this phone available for sale, because the only worthwhile Helio X30 smartphone was released by Meizu, but the two screen design is ugly and the second screen is easy to break. But pricing it above $300 is going to kill any potential sales if we count the fact that SD820 phones can be bought for less than $150 now (Albeit, with no software updates)

      Taking a dig at leeco… 🤔

        I was actually thinking about the Sharp AQUOS P1. Gearbest was giving away coupons a few days ago, which allowed you to buy this former SD820 Japanese flagship for a measly $120. Now they’re offering it for $214 but I’m sure they’ll give more coupons in the future. I like what the LeEco phones offer for their price, even though I never liked the black bezels on a white phone thing they’ve had going for long.

      Actually Leeco is hurting even when they are dead… To everyone.

    But Who would pay $400 for a Vernee phone? they haven’t done anything as a brand to warrant a price tag like that.

    Just one more thing left to add. If it doesn’t come with Oreo and Project Treble out of the box, then the phone will be a waste of money. Take note of that, vernee.
