Gionee M7 Plus spotted in the wild, Snapdragon 660 in tow
Gionee launched the M7 in late September with the newest device in their Marathon series being powered by MediaTek's new Helio P30. The company is set to release the Plus version of the device, and unlike similarly named devices that offer only an increase in size, the M7 Plus actually brings a number of significant improvements.
The M7 Plus was spotted online on a few benchmarks yesterday, with the mid-ranger featuring the Snapdragon 660, which makes it the most powerful Gionee device ever. The M7 is expected to sport a massive 6.43-inch display, which is quite an upgrade from the 6.01-inch one on the regular display. Like the M7, though, it comes with a FHD+ display, dual rear cameras (16 MP + 8 MP), 6 GB of storage, and 64 GB of storage. Battery size is unknown but the M7 features a 4000 mAh battery and we expect the M7 Plus to make improvements on that.
The M7 Plus is expected to launch on November 26. Pricing details are inconclusive at the moment but we wouldn't be surprised to see a US$450+ price tag.
Meanwhile, Gionee just launched the M7 Power in India today. The entry-level device sports a 6-inch HD+ display, Snapdragon 435, 13 MP rear camera, 8 MP selfie shooter, 4 GB of RAM, 64 GB of storage, and a massive 5000 mAh battery. It comes with a price tag of Rs 16,999 (US$260).
