If you’re looking for a big smartphone, with a huge battery, we have a suggestion for you: the Gionee M2017! The Chinese manufacturer’s upcoming model already received the certification and it’s expected to make its debut by the end of the year, during a special event, held at Haikou Mission Hills on 26 December.
As mentioned above, the handset will come with a massive 5.7″ AMOLED display, rocking a QHD resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels, while under the hood it will feature a Snapdragon 653 chipset, with an octa-core configuration, running at 1.95 GHz. The processor will be aided by an Adreno 510 GPU and 6 GB of RAM, while the internal storage capacity is rumoured to count 128 GB.
The Gionee M2017 is also rumoured to feature a dual-camera setup on the back, with a 12 MP snapper, as well as a 13 MP one, while on the front, the selfie unit will be represented by an 8 MP camera.
Like many other mid-range handsets, the phone has a fingerprint scanner on the back and the 3.5mm is not missing, fortunately. However, one of the most impressive features of this smartphone is the battery, with its whooping capacity of 7000 mAh and fast charging. After all, the latter was required, since such a big battery needs time to fully charge.
Of course, such an impressive power pack makes the phone a bit heavier, so the fact that the M2017 weighs 230 grams and measures 10.65mm in thickness doesn’t come as a surprise.
The Gionee M2017 will be powered by Google’s Android 6.0 Marshmallow, but don’t expect to see stock Android on this phone, since it comes with the manufacturer’s Amigo OS 3.2 on top.
Right now, we know that the phone will be available just in black. As for the price, it’s still a mystery, but it should be revealed pretty soon.
