Vernee launches the Mars Pro, calls it “the most cost-effective flagship for 2017”13
The new phone shares a lot with its older sibling — it has slim, 1 mm side bezels around the screen, ensuring that the 5.5-inch display doesn't translate into a hard-to-handle handset. The metallic body is overall quite slim as well, measuring at 0.3 in (7.6 mm) despite the fact that it houses a rather generous 3,500 mAh battery.
As can be expected, the phone ships with Android 7 Nougat pre-installed and it's in a pretty close-to-vanilla condition. Future updates are not out of the picture, too, considering that the Vernee Mars, which shipped with Android 6 Marshmallow, was updated to Nougat not long after Google's latest OS became official.
The back snapper has a Sony-made IMG258 13 MP sensor and a lens with a fairly wide aperture – F2.0. The camera is quick to focus thanks to phase detection autofocus tech and it's assisted by a dual-tone LED flash for natural colors in the darkest of moments. The selfie cam is a more modest 5 MP one.
Now for the price: the Mars Pro is currently in a pre-sale stage and can be ordered for $179.99. Come July the 4th, that promo price will rise up to $199.99, which is still a bargain price point for what we get.
