The Gionee M2017 is the company’s latest smartphone coming this month.
After teasing the launch a couple of weeks back, Gionee has finally launched their most ambitious project yet. The Gionee M2017 is a flagship model and sports a 5.7-inch QHD display, 6GB of RAM, and is powered by a 1.9GHz octa-core processor. The handset also packs in 128GB and 256GB of internal storage.
Now, coming to the weird aspects of this phone. It has, not one but, two batteries of 3,500 mAh each – putting the total to 7,000 mAh.
This is not all. The phone is priced at around 7,000 Yuan or Rs 70,000 for the 128GB version and 16999 Yuan or Rs 1.7 lakh for the 256GB variant!
There’s nothing, apart from a premium leather finish that warrants that steep price point.
