SKK announced another quad core smartphone – the SKK Marian V2. It’s an upgrade to the SKK Marian V1 having better cameras, more RAM and Android 4.4.2 Kitkat out of the box.
The SKK Marian V2 retains the 5-inch IPS screen of its predecessor. It also has the same 1.3GHz quad core processor with a dual core Mali-400 MP2 graphics processor.
One curious detail on the photo of the SKK Marian V2 above is the iPhone-ish circular home button. Hopefully, this won’t make the Marian V2 look like a cheap iPhone look-alike. Even the placement of the rear camera and flash are reminiscent of Apple’s smartphone.
The back cover has a metallic brush finish although it surely is made up of plastic. The side views also make the Marian V2 appear sleek and cool with three available colors: black, white and gold.
The good news is – SKK Marian V2 supports USB On the Go function. Gamers can connect USB game controllers and USB flash drives for additional storage space.
SKK hasn’t revealed the pricing and battery capacity of the SKK Marian V2 yet but the V1 has an SRP of ₱4,599 so this should cost more. Nevertheless, SKK slashed the price of the V1 to just ₱2,299 in one of its promos.
