The Apollo 2 will be the first smartphone to have an 8GB RAM if it hits the market before the Asus ZenFone AR, which is due to hit markets in Q2 2017, as the latter is the current title holder for a phone with the highest RAM.
The company announced in a Twitter post on Monday that the Apollo 2 will be released in the MWC 2017 and it will be the first smartphone in the world to be powered by an Helio X30 processor. The company further added that the smartphone would be available in two variants: 64GB of inbuilt storage + 6GB of RAM and 128GB of inbuilt storage + 8GB of RAM. In addition to these specifications, the Apollo 2 is expected to have QHD display.
The processor Helio X30 is going to be the successor of the Helio X20 SoC. It is build with TSMC’s 10nm FinFET architecture and sports a quad-core PowerVR 7XT GPU. The X30 chip features a trip cluster design similar to its predecessors, X20 and X25. This chipset is capable of support 8 GB RAM device. It can support a camera with sensor capability as high as 40 megapixels and can support video capture up to 24 megapixels.
The deca-core Helio X30 comes with four Cortex-A73 cores clocked at 2.8GHz, four Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 2.2GHz, and two Cortex-A35 cores clocked at 2GHz. The X30 comes with a modem that will support three carrier aggregation (3CA) and Cat.12 LTE.
