Vernee take a shy at explaining the antenna lines on the Mars

Vernee seem to have a higher-than-normal level of fondness for their newest phone, the Vernee Mars. The phone only comes with a Helio P10 SoC, but despite that is priced higher than the Apollo Lite.

That said, the Mars too seems to have the DNA of the Apollo Lite that makes it very attractive to look at. There’s hardly any bezel (there certainly is some but they still choose to call it bezel-less sometimes), and despite being similar to those on some other phones, the antenna lines do add to the visual aspect.

According to Vernee, the Mars is “only the third all-metal phone ever to feature arc antenna bands.” The other two, as we understand are the Apple iPhone 7 and the Meizu Pro 6.

The phone is all set to start shipping later thin month. When in-stock, it’ll move at a rather steep $249.99 apiece; you can, however, get one now for $199.99.

    sorry vernee too expensive for a p10, even if you’re going to support the phone

      Agreed. $160 at max for a P10 SoC.

    they should try a few SD CPUs for super cheap phones but their agreement with MTK might be a hindrance …

      For sure, but for that they would have to pay for the licenses. 😀

        say… how much do these ‘licenses’ cost ?

        also , why are MTK licenses so widely used by almost EVERY phone-maker but Qualcomm licenses are exclusive to a few ?

          All the licenses what they are stealing for every sold phones? I think that’s a lot of money.
          Do you remember the Meizu vs Qualcomm complaint?
          In China, the small brands doesn’t pay for the licenses what should be payed. And this is why most of them coming with MTK SoC’s.

            im not sure i remember the Meizu-Qualcomm saga , would you mind summarizing that for me ?

            also , if most of the SMALL brands DONT pay appropriately for licenses , then how come MTK lets them use their CPUs ?! whats the problem with Chinese brands paying for Qualcomm licenses ?
