China has churned out its fair share of smartphones recently that offer plenty of bang for your hard earned buck – if you’re living in China, that is. They seem to have managed to whittle down the cramming of as many features as possible into an affordable package into a work of art, and you can also take a look at the likes of the Gionee Elife S5.5 being the world’s thinnest or slimmest smartphone, measuring a mere 5.5mm in its thickness. Well, it seems that the K Touch Nibiru Mars One H1 (what a mouthful) also deserves a closer look. It might not be the thinnest handset on the planet, but it is going to be the cheapest octa-core Full HD smartphone in the world.
Underneath the hood of the K Touch Nibiru Mars One H1, one will find an octa-core 1.7GHz MediaTek MT6592 processor, 2GB RAM, 16GB of internal memory, a 13MP camera at the back with LED flash, a 5MP front facing camera with a wide-angle lens to capture the entire group without missing out on anyone, as well as a 5” Full HD touchscreen display to boot. It will also feature the usual slew of connectivity options, without LTE of course, and will run on their very own Nibiru ROM that will be based on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean mobile operating system.
The kicker? A relatively low price of 998 yuan, which when converted, would end up at $162 or €116, depending on which side of the pond you’re residing at. Bear in mind that the K Touch Nibiru Mars One H1 will be sold as an unlocked device, but unfortunately, it seems limited to being sold in its native China only.
