Today's flagships follow a pretty clear trend: have a metal and / or glass body, have thin bezels around an 18:9 screen, preferably have a dual camera module for some funky features, have a price-tag of $699 or more. But it was pretty interesting to see that budget-class devices also started to introduce said features at a fraction of the price. Here we have the Vernee X — a pretty sleek-looking handset, chock-full of features, yet pretty affordable.

So, the Vernee X is a metal-made phone with a full-screen front, sporting a 6-inch, super-wide 18:9 display with a resolution of 2160 x 1080 (FHD+), giving it a PPI ratio of about 402 – that's pretty sharp.

The phone has dual camera modules on both its front and its back. The rear camera uses a 16 MP sensor as its main snapper and an additional 5 MP camera to help with depth-sensing. You guessed it — it has portrait mode for shots that imitate a super-shallow depth of field. On the front, there's a 13 MP camera for the actual selfies and another 5 MP camera to assist. The phone also sports LED flashes on both front and back.


As for hardware, the Vernee X is powered by an octa-core MediaTek Helio P23 SoC that can reach up to 2.5 GHz, 6 GB of RAM, and has a 128 GB storage chip. All of this is powered by quite the massive battery — 6,200 mAh. Yeah, that's bigger than some portable batteries out there, but thanks to a fast-charging chip, you can top it up in 2 hours and 30 minutes.

Last, but not least, Vernee is also proud of its face-scanning feature on the Vernee X, which it states can perform a successful unlock in 0.2 seconds or less. It is, maybe lovingly, called Face ID.

The Vernee X will retail for $299.99, but you can pre-order it for the price of $249.99 between the 18th and 25th of December. Shipment is due between the 7th and 12th of January.
