Gionee launches a premium smartphone in China called the Gionee M2017 that offers jaw dropping features for a premium price.

It has a whooping 6GB of RAM, two 3500mAh batteries giving it a total of 7000mAh of battery capacity and a dual camera setup at the back.


The Gionee M2017 is housed in a body made up of metal and leather with a 5.7 inch Quad HD AMOLED display. The dual camera system is composed of a 12MP and 13MP cameras with 2x optical zoom.

It runs on an octa core Snapdragon 653 processor from Qualcomm with an Android 6.0 Marshmallow based Amigo 3.5 UI. There’s also a fingerprint sensor and fast charging.

However, it doesn’t have a standard 3.5mm audio jack. Instead, it uses a USB Type-C port for charging, data transfer and audio output.
