Gionee is quite a popular company in China. This company had launched some interesting smartphones this year, and the Gionee S9 is the latest offering by the company. In addition to the Gionee S9, the company had introduced the Gionee P7 Max, Gionee S6 Pro, etc. Having that in mind, it seems like the company is preparing to launch yet another big battery smartphone, and they’re well known for big battery phones considering they’ve introduced a number of Marathon-branded big battery devices before.
The Gionee M2017 is the company’s upcoming handset, and it just got certified by TENAA (China’s equivalent to the FCC) in China. This handset comes with a beefy 7,000mAh battery, says TENAA, so it is comparable to Oukitel’s K6000 and K6000 Pro devices which sport 6,000mAh battery packs. The Gionee M2017 sure is an odd-looking smartphone, and that might, or might not appeal to you, but it sure does look unique, as you can see in the gallery down below, The combination of light and dark gray colors, plus some bold design choices are present here, and it seems like its display will be curved as well. Now, judging by the specs, this will be quite a capable smartphone, as it will sport a 5.7-inch QHD (2560 x 1440) AMOLED display, 6GB of RAM and 128GB of non-expandable native storage. The phone will be fueled by the Helio P10 64-bit octa-core processor clocked at 1.95GHz, which is MediaTek’s mid-range chip which comes with the Mali-T860 GPU.
On the back of this phone, you’ll get a 13-megapixel camera, while an 8-megapixel shooter will be available on the phone’s front side. The fingerprint scanner is included in the home button which is placed below the display of this smartphone, and Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow will come pre-installed on the Gionee M2017 according to TENAA. The phone will be quite thick (10.65mm), mainly because of the beefy battery, and it will weight 230 grams. That is more or less all the info we have at the moment, though Gionee will launch this device soon, at least we expect them to do so.
