Gionee M2017 with 7,000 mAh battery officially announced

Looking for a smartphone that can stay off the charger for more than three days with regular usage? Well, that is the kind of battery endurance one hopes Gionee’s new M2017 smartphone can provide, as the device comes with a whopping 7,000 mAh battery inside. The Gionee M2017 combines two 3,500 mAh batteries to keep the lights on, and Gionee touts up to 31 hours of continuous talk time, 25 hours of video, and an insane 915 hours of standby time.

The device has fast charging thanks to Quick Charge 3.0, so the 7,000 mAh battery shouldn’t take more than a couple of hours to charge once it runs out of juice. At the front of the M2017 lies a 5.7-inch Quad HD display, and a Snapdragon 653 SoC powers ticks inside the hood. There is 6GB of RAM, 128/256GB of storage, 12 megapixel and 13 megapixel dual camera setup at the back, an 8-megapixel front-facing camera, and a fingerprint sensor. There is no headphone jack on the device, and it runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box.

All that battery prowess comes for a premium, as the M2017 will start at RMB 6,999 (roughly SGD 1,460) in China, with a higher-end variant with a leather back going up to RMB 16,999 (roughly SGD 3,540). The phone certainly has an interesting design, one that’s similar to the luxury Vertu smartphones we keep seeing now and then, and it looks like Gionee is aiming for the extremely high-end segment of the market with the M2017. The Gionee M2017 is available in China now, with no word on an international launch yet.
