(Photo : Twitter) The Vernee Mars smartphone is expected to hit the market soon.

As the official release date of the Vernee Mars draws closer, the company has released a set of new photos of the device, probably to score more marketing points. Vernee devices are quite well-accepted in the Chinese smartphone market, which is why many are anticipating the release of the new Mars model.

The new set of photos show the back part of the phone. This revealed a couple of design cues that Vernee is known for. First is the arc antenna design which Vernee has been building a hype about for quite some time now. Although many believe that the Mars would be available in several colors, the new set of photos only show the silver model.

The new photos also confirmed that the upcoming Vernee Mars would look hauntingly familiar to Apple's iPhone. Even the placement of the camera sensor, along with the USB Type-C port, the dark plastic stripes, and speaker locations are comparable to the iPhone. If not for the Vernee logo, one could easily misjudge the Mars as an iPhone.

While being tagged as a cheap iPhone rip-off is an unflattering compliment, the Vernee Mars does have a decent set of specs to make it stand on its own. Powering the Vernee Mars is a MediaTek Helio P20 chipset with an octa-core processor, 6GB of memory, according to Giz China. It is unclear how much storage space the device would come with.

The device's MediaTek Helio P20 chipset has four Cortex A53 cores running at a still unconfirmed speed, and four Cortex A53 core clocked at 2.3GHz. It has an ARM Mali T880 graphics processing unit, which should be powerful enough to handle graphics-intensive apps and games.
