Yes, you read it right! Gionee has officially unveiled their smartphone named M2017 today. The best part about the smartphone is its battery. M2017 is backed by a massive 7000 mAh battery ( two 3500 mAh batteries ), which supports Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 through the USB-C Port.
The M2017 features a 5.7″ (2560 × 1440 pixels) QHD AMOLED display with curved edges on either side. There’s also a fingerprint sensor up front, capacitive navigation, all put into a very interesting design. It is powered by octa core Snapdragon 653 SoC, 6 GB RAM and 128/256GB internal storage. The premium phone, however, lacks the microSD card slot and the 3.5 mm headphone jack as well.
In the camera department, the smartphone features a 12 MP + 13 MP dual rear camera setup and a single 8 MP front sensor. The device runs Android Marshmallow with Gionee’s Amigo UI v3.5 on top.
Like all the Chinese manufacturers do these days, Gionee M2017 is going to be a China-exclusive device, atleast for now. The ordinary model will cost RMB 6,999 (US $1010), while the top one with an Italian custom alligator leather back will cost a whopping RMB 16,999 (US $2446).
