Gionee has recently launched the Elife S Plus handset in India, and it seems like the GN8001 phablet is one the way as well. That being said, Gionee has released two really compelling smartphones earlier this year, the Elife E8 flagship phablet, and the Marathon M5 mid-ranger which sports a huge battery on the inside. Well, it seems like the latter one is going to be announced in India soon. Gionee has confirmed that the Marathon M5 will be officially unveiled in India on November 24th, read on.
It seems like Gionee has started sending out invites for their November 24th event which will be held in Bengaluru. The source has received such an invitation and decided to share it with the public. Gionee flat out admits that the Marathon ‘6020’ will be announced at the event. The ‘6020’ number actually refers to the 6,020mAh battery which can be found on the inside of this mid-range handset. Speaking of which, let’s take a look at what Marathon M5 has to offer in terms of specs, shall we.
The Gionee Marathon M5 sports a 5.5-inch 720p (1280 x 720) AMOLED display along with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of expandable internal storage. The device is powered by MediaTek’s MT6535 SoC along with a Mali-T720 GPU for graphics. The 13-megapixel camera can be found on the back of the Marathon M5, and a 5-megapixel snapper is available up front. Android 5.1 Lollipop comes pre-installed on the device, along with Gionee’s software additions which are available as well. The phone does offer support for 4G LTE, and it is made out of metal, as you can see in the provided image down below.
The Marathon M5 actually looks quite sleek, and it sports three capacitive buttons below the display, overview, home and back, respectively. That being said, we still don’t know how much will this phone cost in India, but it seems like we’re about to find out in only four days. That is pretty much it, stay tuned if you’re interested in this launch, we’ll report back as soon as the phone gets unveiled in India.
