Vernee Mars features an ultra thin bezel which is only 1mm wide. The width of the body is close to that of many present 5 inch smartphones. And the back cover of Mars has 98% metal coverage. In addition, vernee Mars adopts an arc antenna band which is similar to that of iPhone7. Due to the 7.6mm thickness and metal grinding process it adopts, Mars delivers superb handling experience, which vernee described as “skin-like”.
What’s more, Mars is equipped with Vcharge technology. And vernee claims that it takes only 50 minutes to get Mars charged to 50% of its capacity. With 5 protections, the charging process is not fast, but also safe.

MTK Helio P10 octa-core CPU
13MP SONY IMX258 rear camera, supports PDAF
5.5 inch FHD In-cell display.
Now Vernee has started the presale of Mars. The retail price is $249.99, while the presale price is $229.99.
