The M5 Plus is a larger successor to the Gionee Marathon M5.
Gionee has launched yet another smartphone with a giant battery inside, following the Marathon M5 from earlier this year. The Gionee M5 Plus is a successor to the Marathon M5 and brings with it a 6-inch Full HD (Super AMOLED) screen and surprisingly a smaller battery (5,020 mAh vs 6,020 mAh on the Marathon M5). Gionee is still promising two-day battery life, however, despite the M5 Plus having more screen estate.
In addition to the big battery, the M5 Plus comes with dual charging chips that can charge the phone in two hours. The M5 Plus also features a metallic body with a USB Type-C port, and a fingerprint sensor on the front for unlocking the device and securing user data. The phone has dual SIM slots with LTE and VoLTE support on both slots.
Other specs include an octa-core MediaTek MT6582 processor clocked at 1.3GHz, 3GB of RAM, a 13-megapixel rear camera, a 5-megapixel front camera, and 64GB of internal storage expandable via a microSD slot. The phone runs Android 5.1.1 Lollipop with Gionee’s Amigo 3.1 UI on top. The M5 Plus is priced at 2,499 Yuan (roughly $385) and will be available in China this Christmas.
There is no word on availability in other markets.
