Chinese startup Vernee is expanding its smartphone line-up.
Vernee announced that the Apollo Lite would be joining its flagship Vernee Apollo smartphone earlier this month. The Vernee Apollo Lite will run on the MediaTek Helio X20 10-core CPU, but offer less storage with 32GB and a lower quality camera system. The Apollo features 128GB of storage. The lower storage is reflected in the price for the Apollo Lite.

Today, in typical Vernee fashion, the company revealed another detail of the Apollo Lite. The screen of the Apollo Lite comes from Sharp. The Vernee Apollo Lite features a 5.5-inch Sharp IGZO display. The Sharp IGZO technology is hailed as offering better image quality at lower power consumption.
The Vernee Apollo Lite has an announced price-tag of $199.99. This is $200 less than the Apollo. The features of the Apollo Lite include Helio X20 (MT6797), 5.5-inch FHD Arc screen, 4GB RAM, 32GB storage, 16MP camera, 5MP front camera, USB-C, Dual-SIM and Android 6.0.
The $399.99 Vernee Apollo features in contrast include Helio X20 10-core CPU and comes with over the top configuration including 5.5 inch 2k high definition display, 6GB RAM, 128GB storage and 21.0MP Sony IMX230 rear camera.
The Apollo Lite is interesting for users who want the speed of the X20, but do not require a lot of storage and a high-end camera.
