Vernee is a relatively unknown Chinese smartphone maker which is trying to make it in the competitive mobile market. A few months ago we told you about the Vernee Apollo which tries to present itself as a worthy OnePlus 3T alternative.
Now the company is focusing all its energies on the Apollo X model, which according to the information we’re getting will be shipping out with some interesting features.
You might remember that we talked about Remix OS for Mobile – a custom ROM which aims to transform your Android smartphone into a PC. Well Vernee is hoping to achieve something similar with the Apollo X.
The Apollo X is poised to take advantage of a similar solution dubbed OXI Desktop. Basically OXI will allow owners of the Apollo X run multi-window mode on their smartphone or tablet – which is said makes the Android feel more like a desktop OS.
Additionally, users will be able to cast the multi-window environment to an external display while remaining in full-screen mode on their mobile device. Basically the OXI behaves in the likeness of Microsoft’s Continuum. And like the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S8’s DeX Station.
However, while the Galaxy S8 DeX is actually a dock, Vernee’s Apollo X is said to come pre-installed with OXI which is called a software adaptation.
Regardless, the result is bound to be the same. You’ll be able to switch the entire content from the smartphone’s display to a massive monitor for a clean and clutter-less desktop experience.
The phone made an appearance at MWC 2017 with a 5.5-inch display with 1080 x 1920 resolution and a deca-core MediaTek Helio X20 chipset under the hood working hand in hand with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage.
The Vernee Apollo X is currently available for pre-order on Gearbest for $219.99 a pop.
