Vernee is a Chinese brand not many people are familiar with, and there’s a good reason for that. This company hasn’t been around for that long, but they have managed to attract people’s attention by releasing a couple of decent smartphones thus far. Well, Vernee is not stopping now, they’re planning to release yet another interesting smartphone in the coming weeks, the Vernee Mars.
The company had already teased this smartphone several times, and now we’ve received a couple of new tips from our source at the company. It seems like the Vernee Mars will have really thin bezels on the sides, as you can see in the images down below, and in addition to that, it will be made out of metal, it will, reportedly, sport a metal unibody design. The 3.5mm headphone jack will be placed on the very top of the device, and the screen-to-body ratio will be pretty high it seems. Now, interesting enough, this handset is expected to ship with 6GB of RAM on the inside, but it will not come with a flagship processor. If the info we’ve received is accurate, the Vernee Mars will be fueled by the Helio P20 64-bit octa-core processor by MediaTek, which is MediaTek’s chip which was introduced back in February during the Mobile World Congress (MWC). As already mentioned, this is not a flagship processor, it’s a mid-range chip, and a direct successor to the Helio P10 which has been utilized in many smartphones thus far, mainly Chinese ones. The Helio P20 is made using a 16nm FinFET manufacturing process, and should be quite capable and power efficient.
If you take a look at the gallery down below, you’ll get two real life images of the Vernee Mars, and one teaser render. All of these images more or less confirm that the Vernee Mars will be a sleek-looking smartphone, and it’s unfortunate we don’t have more images / spec info to share with you, but we will keep you posted, as usual, Vernee will probably release more info soon, and the official announcement of this smartphone is not far at this point either.
