A few days ago, we talked about the Vernee X — a recently-introduced handset, which is currently in pre-sale at a promo price.

For $250, you get a 6-inch, 18:9, 2160 x 1080 display, an octa-core MediTek Helio P23 SoC, 6 GB of RAM, and 128 GB of storage. To put the cherry on top, we've got a dual camera module on the front and a dual one on the back, bringing the total camera count to 4. Quite generous, but there's more — the battery that powers the Vernee X has a 6,200 mAh capacity. Yeah, that thing should keep the lights on for a while.

The phone's UI is the proprietary VOS, which is currently based on Android 7.1. It's pretty much a light re-skin, which adds Vernee-specific features, such as the face scan, the portrait modes for the dual cameras, and an enhanced power saving mode that makes the most of the handset's gynormous battery. According to Vernee, the phone can last for 2.5 days on normal usage, while enabling the smart battery saver could extend this time up to 4 days.

Now, many may be worried that such a device might be a “sell it and forget it” ordeal and that it would remain stuck on Android 7 despite the fact that Android 8 Oreo has been out for a while already. Vernee has come out to state that an update to Oreo is actually in the works for the Vernee X and that it would be pushed OTA soon after the phone launches.

The Vernee X can be pre-ordered for $249 now and the promotion ends on the 25th of December. From then on, it's expected the phone would slowly climb back to its retail price of $299.

No T-Mobile LTE bands. They would sell a lot more of these State side if they had all the bands.

Wow you beat me to it. This SOUNDS like it would be at least a great backup phone in case of emergencies or just a change of pace.

Yeah, that's the problem with some of these other phones, that have pretty good specs. NO full LTE bands for the USA... It's almost like someone is stopping manufacturers from including the full LTE bands for the USA on purpose, to keep the "monopoly" of Apple/Samsung in power (and over priced).
