It’s only been around 7 months since Gionee released its Marathon M3 smartphone that featured a 5,000mAh battery but already the coming close to launching its successor, the Gionee Marathon M4, according to posts the company has made on their official Facebook page.
The new Marathon still keeps the same large 5,000mAh battery but features a new metal design as well as support for 4G LTE connectivity. With the large battery, Gionee claims that the Marathon M4 will have a battery life of 463 hours (about 19 days) of standby time, 65 hours of talk time, 107 hours of music listening, 16 hours of video, and 13 hours of gaming.
Unfortunately, aside from the new metal design, large battery, and 4G LTE support, Gionee has yet to reveal the rest of the specification of the Marathon M4. But it should be expected that the new device will be an upgrade from its predecessor which features a 5-inch 720p screen, a MediaTek 1.3GHz quad-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of storage, an 8-megapixel rear camera, and a 2-megapixel front-facing camera.
The actual release date of the Gionee Marathon M4 has yet to be announced but the company said “Let’s meet in June” on their posts so the new device should be officially launched in the next few weeks.
