The 10.65 mm thick smartphone can charge other devices and will house flagship specifications including a 5.7-inch QHD AMOLED curved display and 6 GB of RAM.

What good is a flagship smartphone if it can't last for more than half a day of heavy use? Chinese manufacturer Gionee is challenging the super-thin flagship trend with a thick 10.65 mm chassis designed to hold a 7000 mAh capacity battery.

According to TENAA leaks, the 5.7-inch smartphone will go by the model name M2017 and could feature the following specifications:

  • AMOLED QHD (2560 x 1440) display
  • 1.9 GHz octa-core SoC
  • 6 GB RAM
  • 12 MP + 13 MP dual rear cameras w/ Flash, 8 MP front camera
  • 128 GB eMMC
  • Android 6.0

The display should be similar to the Galaxy S7 Edge including the curved sides according to the TENAA photos. Unfortunately, the source does not detail the exact octa-core SoC used and the smartphone appears to have no MicroSD reader for data expansion.

Other features include a dedicated Home button with integrated fingerprint sensor, leather back, and corrugated metal on the top and bottom. The smartphone is noticeably thinner around the top and bottom edges where the leather is absent as opposed to the flat and smooth designs of most other smartphones.

Not much else is known about the high-end Gionee smartphone including its launch date and expected MSRP. If its M2017 model name is any indication, however, then we can expect it to be available sometime next year.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
