Vernee’s Apollo Is A Mate S Look-alike Has 6GB of RAM, Helio X20 Processor For $399


Budget monster?

We’re heading off to India on the first week of April to take a look at some of vivo’s new products, which we hope includes their 6GB monster the Xplay Elite. But make no mistake – that phone won’t be cheap obviously, and considering vivo’s premium brand status, we expect it to be along the same lines of devices like the Galaxy S7 Edge.


One Chinese company wants to bring a phone with 6GB of RAM in the realm of mid-range phones. Vernee, a Chinese outfit has announced that they’re coming out with their own 6GB RAM-equipped phone, dubbed the Apollo.

Aside from packing externals that look it was lifted from Huawei’s Mate S smartphone, the Apollo sports 6GB of RAM, a MediaTek Helio X20 processor, 128GB of storage and a Sony IMX230 rear camera along with a 2K, 5.5-inch display.

Priced at a mere $399 (Php 18.5K equivalent) it definitely is a very compelling option if you’re brave enough to buy it overseas and send it here, though that’s an option that many people are not going to consider, let alone try.

  1. Mr. Nieves, pakisabi na lang sa execs ng vernee na wag nilang gayahin ang xiaomi. Kung magfaflash man sila sa lazada e limited to 1 or 2 units lang ang mabibili ng bawat lazada member para walang hoarding. Looking forward seeing a review of this device. Thanks.
