The Vernee X has four cameras, gigantic battery, modest price tag

This story is sponsored by Vernee. PhoneArena's opinions in this article have not been affected in any way!

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.

All Chinese phone manufacturers are producing smartphones like flagship phones, but with less price. But, not all phones can be reliable that they can work as phone manufacturers` advice. You can make sure that the phone is really good or not after using it. Because of that, buying smartphones of not well-known companies. For example, you can buy with truth the smartphones of Apple, HTC, Samsung, LG, Motorola (Lenovo), Huawei, Sony and so on. But, buying the smartphones of not well-known, not famous companies is 100% risk!!! What do you think?

I put a pre-order on this on GearBest. Like the specs with a big battery. Vernee are not so unknown anymore. They will attend in Mobile World Congress 2018. Thats very expensive so I guess they got some resources.
