Some of the new smartphones coming to market are now just as powerful as entry-level computers and laptops, and Vernee Apollo is one of them with Mediatek Helio X20 deca-core processor, 6GB RAM, 128GB storage and a 5.5″ display.

The phone runs Android 6.0, and is planned to launch on April 2016 together with other Helio X20 based smartphones from othe Chinese companies such as Meizu, after many delays due to rumored overheating issues.. The brand is completely new, but apparently worthwhile enough to be featured in a recently Mediatek press conference in Shenzhen.
More details about the company can be found on their Facebook page:
