Vernee Mix 2
Ever Since Xiaomi launched its blockbuster smartphone, the Xiaomi Mi MIX with a bezel-less design in 2016, many OEMs, especially those from China have made an attempt to emulate the Mi Mix design on their new smartphones. We’ve seen bezel-less smartphones that emulate the Mi MIX’s design from manufacturers like Ulefone, Cubot, Elephone and many others, and Vernee is one of the latest to join the crew.
With the release of the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 a few months ago, the smartphone industry was again thrown into frenzy and similar bezel-less devices were launched by rival Chinese OEMs. One of these devices is the Vernee Mix 2 which packs impressive specifications like 4GB of RAM and dual rear cameras.
Display & Design
The Vernee Mix 2 comes in the phablet section, featuring a 6-inch IPS LCD display with Full HD+ (1080 * 2160) pixel resolution and 402 PPI pixel density. The pixel resolution is just perfect for the screen size, and the pixel density is enough to provide clear and sharp images on the screen.
Like the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2, the Vernee Mix 2 comes with a border-less design which sees the elimination of almost all of its bezels at the top and sides, and most of its bottom bezels, with the leftover housing the selfie camera.
The back is made with mineral glass which, though delicate, is strong enough to withstand occasional bumps. This smartphone weighs 195 grammes and is 8.2 millimetres thick.
Memory & Performance
The Vernee Mix 2 is powered under the hood by a MediaTek MT6757CD processor which uses eight processing cores that can operate at a maximum speed of 2.5GHz. It is also assisted din processing graphics by a Mali T880 MP2 GPU.
The smartphone comes with 4GB of RAM for multi-tasking and 64GB of onboard storage which can be further expanded up to 128GB using an external microSD card.
The Vernee Mix 2 has an edge over the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 here, as it features a dual camera setup on its rear. The primary camera has a 13MP lens while the secondary has a 5MP lens, and together, you can produce photos with professional effects like background blur.
The Mix 2 also sports an 8MP selfie shooter at the front, accompanied by a LED flash which provides lighting for images.
Battery, Connectivity & Software
The Vernee Mix 2 packs a 4200mAh Li-Po battery which should last for more than a day on heavy usage, and you don’t have to wait too long to get a full charge as the device comes with support for fast charging.
The Vernee Mix 2 has a fingerprint sensor at its rear that can be used to unlock the smartphone. TheMix 2 runs on Android 7.0 (Nougat) out of the box, offering some of the latest software features available on the Android operating system.
Vernee Mix 2 Price and Availability
The Vernee Mix 2 goes for over $200 in most online retail marketplaces, but you can get the smartphone for just $149.99 on Gearbest by applying the coupon code cybermonday28 during checkout.
