Confirmed! Nibiru Mars H1, aka the $165 octacore, 1080 smartphone will support WCDMA!

nibiru mars h1

This week K-touch launched a new brand with a new flagship smartphone, which has now been confirmed to support both TD-SCDMA and WCDMA networks.

The Nibiru Mars H1 might have a silly name, but the price and specification is far from laughable. Costing a mere 998 Yuan in China ($165), the Mars H1 not only packs the latest 1.7Ghz Mediatek Octacore processor, but also 2GB RAM, 5 mega-pixel front camera, 13 mega-pixel rear and even a 5-inch 1920 x 1080 display!

Gizchina News of the week

At the time of launch it was only clear that the Nibiru Mars H1 would support China Mobile’s TD-SCDMA, however today the company confirmed this low-cost super phone will also work on WCDMA 3G networks too.

The first day of sales for the Mars H1 in China is the 24th March, we expect whatever stock K-touch have prepared is not going to be enough to satisfy demand.

    How much will this cost for us buyers and where is the link where we can order it from? English please, English. This web site needs to put a little tab at the top that says English, so I can click on it 🙁

      It is in English. I’m not sure how much this’ll cost for us, but my guesstimate is around $200-235. Where to buy it, however, is the main problem. You should ask on the MTKforums, people there have more experience in purchasing items from China than I do.

        When I clicked on the link, it brought me to a site that looks to be Chinese. Of course I could use google translate. Also if the price goes any higher then $180 a piece, I won’t make much of a profit. These phones don’t support usa 4G, unless I’m wrong.

    It does support WCDMA, but only after a ROM update. Like XiaoMi, you need to register your interest first and hope to get a set when it is released.

    Didn’t someone else in an earlier article about this phone mentioned that this price is only for certain Chinese network customers? Is this true?

    Almost 200.000 people have shown interest in this phone, I doubt they have that much supply. I expect international buyers are going to wait much longer. I am interested in this phone, only if the price is 998 yuan in China (no kind of subsidy involved mentioned by an user in an earlier article).

    If the price is really 998 yuan in China, I think international buyers can buy this phone for around 210-220 USD with free shipping. Just check the usual Chinese sites regularly that sell these Chinese phones to international customers.
