Gionee M2017: High-End phone featuring 7,000 mAh battery launches on Boxing Day
Instead of enjoying the Christmas holidays, Chinese smartphone manufacturer Gionee and their team will prepare a launch event for their planned high-end phone M2017, that poses an interesting mix of fancy features and a battery life that will allow the M2017 to last for a few days. Instead of making the phone as thin as competing smartphones, Gionee decided to go with a 10.65 mm thick design that has enough space to fit a 7,000 mAh battery. According to previous leaks we already know a few of the alleged specs of the M2017.
The front side will feature a curved 5.7 inch AMOLED display with QHD resolution, putting it in a similar league as the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge. However, instead of using a Snapdragon 821, Gionee decided to go with an upper midrange processor, the newly released Snapdragon 653 plus 4 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage. The rear side reveals a dual-camera consisting of a 12 and a 13 megapixel lens. The interesting mix of high-end features, midrange processor and large battery life is sure to find some fans when the phone will be released in China December 26th.
