With the newly announced Vernee V2 Pro Vernee goes the robust way. The crash-proof, dust-and-waterproof phone features a standard 5.99-inch display, a Helio P23 SOC with 6GB of RAM, 64GB of storage and a thick 6200mAh battery. All in all, that brings some size and weight with it. If you do not mind it gets it currently from $249.99 on Coolicool.com.
The demand for rugged phones will probably not decrease so fast with increasing display size and thinner devices. The Vernee V2 Pro sets on this area and offers a thick, fall-proof housing (military standard) and a dust and water resistance (IP68). So the snapping with the 21MP + 5MP dual camera (aperture f / 2.0) under water is also no problem. The front camera also works with 2 sensors: 13MP + 5MP. The sensors used are currently not known, just as the more accurate function.
- 5.99 “, 2160 × 1080 pixels, Mali G71
- MediaTek Helio P23 Octa-Core 2.0GHz, 6GB + 64GB, expandable
- 16 + 21MP dual camera, 8 + 13MP dual front camera
- NFC, Dual Band WLAN, Dual SIM, LTE Band 20, Bluetooth 4.2, USB Type-C
- 6200mAh battery, Android 8.1
- Metal housing, fingerprint sensor, face unlock
The display itself measures the current 5.99 inches at 2160 × 1080Pixels in 18: 9 format and is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass. On capacitive keys / hardware keys you have to do without as well as the 3.5mm headphone jack. A corresponding adapter is included in the scope of delivery.
The 2.0 GHz Helio P23 Octa-Core offers sufficient performance for most everyday applications. The generous 6 GB of RAM and the expandable 64 GB of storage space help with this project.
The large 6200mAh battery can be recharged with a quick charge function with 9V / 2A in about 150 minutes. In addition to the fingerprint sensor on the back, of course, Face Unlock can also be used. Who would like to be able to measure the pulse (to what extent that may work remains to be seen). In addition to NFC, WLAN, Bluetooth 4.2, GPS (GLONASS), USB type-C port is usually also Dual Sim and LTE (ViLTE, VoLTE) including band 20 available. The interface is the minimally adapted Vernee OS (VOS) under Android 8.1.
The size of the device is 7.94 x 164.2 x 11.2mm. The weight reaches ~ 259g. For the light, short summer pants probably already too much.
Reviews / experiences / opinions
From a technical point of view, one now knows what to expect, with a good 82,000 Antutu points, it is sufficiently fast for everyday life and also for most games. But with completely new 3D games you will not be able to play in full details. The system itself should run as usual fast. How to evaluate the battery life or the camera, will show upcoming tests and reviews.
