Chinese smartphone manufacturer Vernee, is expected to launch the Vernee Apollo 2 at Mobile World Congress 2017, which is set to take place in Barcelona in March. The smartphone from Vernee is expected to pack a punch, including sporting a Helio X30 processor manufactured by MediaTek. If this turns out to be true, then Vernee will be the first manufacturer in the world to make use of the Helio X30 in its products. On top of that, the Vernee Apollo 2 will also be the first smartphone in the world to sport a massive 8GB of RAM. This news comes after Vernee Global, posted a picture on its Twitter account, highlighting a couple of features of the upcoming device.
The Vernee Apollo 2 which is dubbed the "World's First Helio X30 Smartphone", will come in two storage variants, with the base version coming with 6GB of RAM, along with 64GB of internal storage. The higher end version of the device will come with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. Apart from that, the device is expected to come with a QHD display. On the right hand side of the image which was posted by Vernee, the front side of the Apollo 2 can be seen. If you take a look at the image, it can be seen that the smartphone comes with a physical home button, unlike the original Vernee Apollo, which came with software buttons and a fingerprint scanner on its rear. The rear of the Vernee Apollo 2 also seems to be absent of the fingerprint scanner found on its predecessor. The device in the image also seems to be running on stock Android, though further details are not available at the moment.
Vernee is a relatively unknown smartphone manufacturer, though the company has released quite a number of devices over the past year. The company's latest smartphone happens to be the Vernee Apollo which was launched not too long back and it packs pretty compelling specs, along with a relatively affordable price tag of around $260. The Helio X30 on the other hand, is manufactured by Taiwanese semiconductor firm, MediaTek, and the chipset itself is a deca-core processor built on 10nm manufacturing process.
