Vernee Mars is now official: 5.5" FHD display, stock Android Marshmallow, ultra affordable price
Employing a dual-anodized full metal body, the 5.5-inch Mars is a sleek designed phone with an impressive screen-to-body ratio of 81%. Vernee proudly reveals that the side bezels of the Mars are just 1mm thin. What's also notable is that the fingerprint scanner of the affordable Mars is positioned on the right side of the phone, just below the power button. The sensor is a pressure-based one and will reportedly unlock the device in 0.1s.
The 5.5-inch full HD display at the front reportedly uses the same in-cell technology that the iPhone 7 uses, and Vernee claims that the touch accuracy of the display is superior to that of other smartphones.
Inside the Vernee Mars, we find an octa-core MediaTek Helio P10 chipset, paired with 4GB RAM, and 32 gigs of eMMC 5.0 native storage. The hybrid SIM slot allows you to throw in two SIM cards or a SIM card and a microSD card.
Finally, and most importantly, the Vernee Mars runs stock Android 6.0 Marshmallow. This will likely appeal to fans of stock Android, just like it appeals to us! Hopefully the device will get updated to Android Nougat in the near future, but Vernee keeps hush on the matter.
The global presale of the Mars has already commenced, and while the phone will normally retail for $249.99, its current presale price is $229.99. The presale will last until October 7. Additionally, willing buyers can use the "vernee8Mars" discount code during the checkout, which will further knock another $30 off the price, meaning that you can score the device for $199.99 at the moment. Now, how neat is that?
