A couple of days back, we reported that Gionee was working on a new smartphone called as the Gionee M5 which was said to feature two batteries to provide around four days of battery life. While the company had yet to officially reveal details about the device, now we know a lot more about the phone, thanks to its listing on TENAA.
The Gionee M5 is confirmed to feature two batteries providing a total battery capacity of 6000mAh. This is one of the largest batteries we have seen in a smartphone, so the phone may indeed last for around four days as claimed. The M5 is a bit thicker than competitors measuring about 8.5mm, but given the two battery design and large capacity, this body size actually commendable. But, the phone is definitely weighted, with a weight of 213 grams — still not surprising given the two large batteries.
As for the other specs, the Gionee M5 turns out to be a mid-ranger. It features a 1.3GHz quad-core processor with 2GB RAM and 16GB of storage. There will be a 5.5-inch AMOLED display with 720p resolution. The rear camera will be of 8MP while the front shooter will be of 5MP. The phone will be running Android 5.0 Lollipop inside, which makes it the first lollipop powered 6000mAh phone in the market. Another 6000mAh phone (powered by Android KitKat) that we saw recently was the Innos D6000, which turned out to be quite popular among readers.
Gionee is yet to reveal more details such as the launch date or pricing about its Gionee M5. But since the phone has already hit TENAA, we expect a launch soon.
