Gionee recently unveiled a new smartphone called The Gionee M2017 to close market for the year. The device which was leaked earlier in November but it is now finally here for the rich folks to buy. For a smart phone that is much more expensive than the iPhone 7, then something big must be coming from Gionee this time around.
The M2017 according to reports is said to have two 3,500mAh batteries (A total battery size of 7,000mAh), meant to last up to nearly 26 hours of continuous video playback. It also possesses a 5.7-inch display with a resolution of 2560 x 1440.
Coming with a massive 6 GB of RAM, an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 653 processor and also with dual rear camera lenses — 12MP sensor and 13MP sensor. This is paired with an 8MP front-facing camera, a fingerprint sensor, and an Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box.
The M2017 doesn’t come with two key features which are common to most phones — the Micro SD card slot and the 3.5mm headphone jack.
The M2017 will have two versions, the first will have 128GB of onboard storage and will be sold at Yuan 6999 (about $1,007) while the version with 256GB of storage is priced at Yuan 16,999 (about $2,446)!
Convert that to Naira, at the rate of N340, you’d have to pay about N831,640 to get the 256GB sized M2017.
That is a lot of money for Nigerians during this hour of recession.
