In fact, Apollo X, as a tailored product, is birthed by chance. It’s not even in Vernee’s product plan. Since the foundation, Vernee has always been interacting with its users. From the feedbacks gathered on Facebook, forum and via email, Vernee learned that many users want a smartphone which packs the mainstream specifications and shows no weakness in shooting and design. They also attach more importance to RAM, ROM and battery life and hope Vernee could satisfy their needs with a new cost-effective model.
Vernee’s CEO Jacky gave much thought to those feedbacks. Yes, mere high configuration doesn’t necessarily mean great user experience. Maybe it’s time release a new model according to users’ need. But how many users will pay for that? And how to deal with overstocked products if this model doesn’t sell well?
But if they don’t do it, will the slogan “Do Better” just become an empty promise and how can they respond to Vernee’s followers? After a long consideration, Vernee finally chose to cater to the need of its users and release the tailored deca-core model – Apollo X.
Apollo X will sport all metal (space-grade aluminum) uni-body processed from 3D sandblasting treatment. It will carry deca-core Helio X20 and come with 4GB RAM and 64 ROM (up to 128GB expansion). To make the screen clearer and super responsive, Vernee chose the Sharp IGZO display (5.5-inch FHD). And camera-wise, Apollo X will house a Sony IMX258 sensor.
Apollo X adopts the leading quick charging solution – Vcharge (9V2A, 18W) coupled with 3500mAh high density battery. In addition, Apollo X will be the first to run on Vernee’s own operating system – VOS, truly designed for worldwide users. Meanwhile, Vernee also promised to roll out Android 7.0 update for Apollo X when the official shipment starts, its previous generation Apollo Lite will also get this update at that time.
According to Jacky, the “X” in the name Apollo X not only stands for mystery, discovery and the pursuit of perfection, but also means Vernee’s gratitude towards its followers. As for the price, Jacky revealed that it will be lower than $220. No wonder they said it would be the most cost-effective flagship with 64GB ROM.
Vernee Apollo X will be launched this month. Stay tuned.
