Gionee M2017 with dual 3,500mAh batteries launched in China; prices go up to around Rs 1.6 lakh

Gionee’s simple solution for everyday battery woes is to include two 3,500mAh batteries in its new M2017 smartphone.

As expected, Gionee has made the much-rumored M2017 smartphone official in China. In line with the leaks, the talking point of the new smartphone is its mammoth 7,000mAh battery capacity. Also Read - Gionee Max Pro with 3GB RAM launched: Price in India, specifications

Gionee claims that the battery is good enough to offer up to 31.7 hours of talktime, nearly 26 hours of video playback, and up to 915 hours on standby mode. The battery also comes with support for Qualcomm s Quick Charge 3.0. With battery life being one of the major concerns of smartphone users these days, these numbers will be music to one s ears. In order to achieve such numbers, Gionee hasn t quite fit in a massive battery, but instead has simply fit in two 3,500mAh battery units underneath.

When you think about it, Gionee s idea to add two batteries in its smartphone seems like quite a simple, yet smart, solution. With support for Quick Charge 3.0, Gionee is also ensuring users don t have to wait ages for both sets of batteries to fully charge. It s not just Gionee either, most companies and universities alike are working towards finding a way to overcome the apparent limitations of lithium-ion batteries. We have seen researchers using materials like magnesium, gold nanowires, while companies like Huawei are experimenting with graphene-assisted Li-ion batteries that can not only withstand high temperatures, but also have twice the lifespan as that of usual batteries.

Gionee M2017 specifications

Coming back to the new smartphone, and the Gionee M2017 flaunts a 5.7-inch QHD (2560×1440 pixels) AMOLED display, and is powered by a 1.9GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 653 octa-core SoC paired with 6GB of RAM. Storage options include 128GB and 256GB options, but there is no microSD card slot to expand the internal memory.

For photography, there is a dual-camera setup at the back, which includes a 12-megapixel sensor and a 13-megapixel sensor. The rear camera comes with LED flash, 10x zoom, and 4K video recording capabilities. For selfies, there is an 8-megapixel shooter up front.

The M2017 smartphone also features a fingerprint sensor embedded into the home button up front, and connectivity options like dual-SIM card slots, 4G LTE support, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, and USB Type-C port. As is quickly becoming a trend, Gionee s smartphone ditches the 3.5mm audio jack. On the software front, the smartphone runs on Android Marshmallow-based Amigo 3.5 UI.

Gionee M2017 price

Gionee s new M2017 is not for everyday users, and seems inclined towards an audience that see their smartphone as more of an indulgence. While the standard model costs RMB 6,999 (Rs 68,300 approximately), there is also a top-tier model that boasts exotic materials like Italian custom alligator leather back. Not surprisingly, this sort of indulgence comes at a cost, and a massive one for that. The M2017 top-model is priced at RMB 16,999, which is approximately Rs 166,000. If we were to nitpick though, it is a pity that a smartphone at this price range misses out on some bling like Swarovski diamonds.

There is no word on whether the Gionee M2017 will be launched in international markets, including India. If it does, would it be something that you won t mind indulging in? Let us know in our comments section below.
