New phone brand to unveil deca-core powered handset with 6GB RAM, 128GB ROM

New phone brand to unveil deca-core powered handset with 6GB RAM, 128GB ROM
So let's say that you are a long time smartphone manufacturer looking to make a name with your own brand. Do you churn out some low end entry-level device and hope to sell it at a high enough price to rake in the bucks to help you build your next model? Or do you capture the attention of everyone, including those specs-first Americans, by loading the device with powerful hardware.

The manufacturer, Vernee, has three new handsets on its website. The flagship model, the Vernee Apollo, is loaded to say the least. The phone is equipped with a 5.5-inch screen carrying a 1440 x 2560 QHD resolution. Under the hood is a MediaTek Helio X20 chipset. In case you've forgotten, this is the chip that features a deca-core GPU. The Apollo will be blasting off with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of native storage. On the back of the device, you will find a 21MP Sony IMX230 camera module with an 8MP camera in front for selfies and video chats. The phone is clad in metal, and offers a Type-C USB port. And the Apollo will also support Force Touch capabilities.

We'd love to see some of the specs that haven't been mentioned, like the battery size. And we'd also like to know which Android build will be pre-installed. And pricing, of course, is important. The company says it will put a competitive price on the handset.

The final question is whether Vernee keeps this beast inside China, or gives U.S. smartphone buyers the opportunity to purchase the phone. We should know in April when the handset is expected to be unveiled.

Thanks for the tip!

yeah, but because it's chinese, anything over $399 makes no sense.

Mate 8 hardware? The Mate 8 rocks Huawei's Kirin, not MediaTek.

I'm sorry, I was referring to looks since you feel you need to address my comment.

What adreno said, and truth be told this phone is going to be crap with that QHD screen because the X20 use the T-880 MP4 same GPU as the Kirin 950 that's in the mate 8. Even with a 1080p screen the mate 8 barely gets better frame rates than the nexus 6P. Of course if you don't care about having good frame rates, as in you don't play smartphone games then this phone should be perfect for you.

Why, because kiddy games will be the only games you can play on this phone, like candy crush and s**t lol.

Isn't phones fast enough as they are. Untill we have true gaming or somthing then there's really no point in gaining speeds etc.. Unless someone can explain to me a legit reason then I don't get it

It is getting really difficult to tell phones apart nowadays. In any case, this sounds absolutely beastly.

Sounds like it might be a very good phone.

I'd rather have 4 really good cores than 10 average cores not getting fully utilised.

Yes, yes, yes. The LeEco Le Max Pro, Xiaomi mi5 and this phone have me excited for 2016.

Optimist: 128GB storage so that you won't worry about needing a new phone anytime soon. Pessimist: An unknown brand meaning it'll be such a buggy mess it won't be usable in less than a year. There's reason why brands like Apple, Samsung, Huawei and Xiaomi are eating up the market in China.
