Last year, Vernee joined the flagship bandwagon with the introduction of a new handset with the moniker Vernee Apollo. This handset was a true beauty on the outside and came with the right specs when you dive into the insides.
2017 has kicked off and the OEM has revealed plans to launch a new smartphone at MWC 2017 that would be running MediaTek’s very own Helio X30 processor and since this is a flagship SoC, we expect it to be powering the Apollo 2 smartphone.
However, these are just speculations as the real moniker of this new handset has not been officially revealed yet. As of now, we only know that this upcoming smartphone would be having the booth number 7G60.
Since there is no Helio X30 smartphone commercially available in the market, we have reason to believe that this new device might just turn out to be the first handset which would go official with the Helio X30 running things on the inside.
The X30 proves to be a true flagship SoC as it comes in with 10-cores with a tri-cluster architecture – seeing two cortex A73 cores running at 2.8GHz, four cortex A53 cores with speeds of 2.2GHz and four other Cortex A35 cores clocked at 2GHz.
With such a chipset, the handset should be able to feature an RAM size ranging from 4GB to 8GB, displays as high as 2K screens, IMG 7XTP-Mt4 GPU clocked at speeds of 820MHz. 4k video playback and video shooting at 30fps, support for UFS 2.1 and eMMC 5.1 flash storages as well as 28MP dual IPS camera.
From what we can see, all these capabilities fall between what has been rumored to be on the spec sheet of the upcoming Vernee Apollo 2 so it might just turn out to be the handset with the booth number 7G60.
