Vernee V2 is a rugged device that’s bezel-less from Vernee, the company that is also planning to launch the Apollo 2. The new device packs a punch and retails like an ordinary midrange smartphone.
The water-resistant smartphone comes with 6GB RAM, 64GB internal storage, 5800mAh battery and runs on Android 8.0 Oreo. But that’s not all, it sports the trending dual rear camera as well. Want to know more about the Vernee V2? Stay with me.
Vernee V2 DESIGN
First of all, it is IP68 certified offering both dust and water resistant. The phone was made of Plastic and Metal, and what a perfect combination that is. It’s elegant and strong as well, the dual rear camera at the back also adds to the beauty. Below the dual shooters, there’s a fingerprint scanner for easy access to the phone and private apps.
Moving to the sides, the phone is bulky just like I expected. A rugged smartphone with huge battery capacity, it measures 11.2 mm in thickness but surprisingly it weighs just 178g. It’s only available in black colour, with a touch of red by the side. I think other bright colours would have done much justice to its sleek body.

We don’t see this pretty often, a rugged device that’s bezel-less. Although the bezels are still there but Vernee really did their best here. The top bezel is busy with the dual selfie camera, LED flash, speaker grille and ambient light sensor. While the bottom bezel is kinda useless though.
Focusing on the screen, 5.99-inch FHD+ IPS capacitive touchscreen is crystal clear and works underwater. It boasts of 1080 × 2160 pixels in resolution and 403 pixels per inch density for immersive visuals. Protecting the strong screen is a Corning Gorilla Glass, making the screen scratch resistant.
