The manufacturer will begin rolling out the OTA update before the end of this year for its mainstream 5.5-inch smartphone.

Chinese manufacturer Vernee announced its Apollo smartphone earlier this year and now the Apollo Lite model will be one of the first deca-core smartphones to receive an official update to Android 7.0 Nougat. The manufacturing is promising that new and existing owners of the Apollo Lite will receive the OTA update by this December at the earliest, so the roll out may extend into the new year.

The update will come with all the new features inclusive to the latest Android version. This includes split screen apps, faster shortcuts, easier app switching and multi-tasking, and more efficient battery life. The split screen feature in particular was a stock feature of the 2013 LG G3 and it isn't until now that Google will be making it standard on its newest Android software.

The Vernee Apollo Lite is a mainstream smartphone with relatively high-end specifications considering the low $180 USD asking price. Core features include a 5.5-inch FHD IPS display, 4 GB RAM, 16 MP rear and 5 MP front cameras, 32 GB eMMC, CNC metal design, 3180 mAh internal battery, 4G LTE, and the signature deca-core MediaTek Helio X20 SoC. The smartphone is equipped with a USB Type-C port instead of the more common Micro-USB.

More detailed specifications and images on the Apollo Lite can be found on its official product page here.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
