The year is not yet over for Chinese phone manufacturers as it appears some of them still have one or two devices they want to launch this month. Gionee is one of those companies and they just teased a new phone in a poster revealing a new brand ambassador.

The phone maker released a poster revealing Chinese actress, Xu Fan, as its new brand ambassador. The poster shows the actress holding hands with her Director husband, Feng Xiaogang, who is holding a phone in his left hand.

If you look closely, the phone in his hand is none other than the curved screen and dual-cameras sporting Gionee M2017 phone we covered a couple of weeks ago.


The phone which has a leather back and a design similar to what you will only see on premium phones is said to have a 7000mAh battery and top notch security. After¬†showing up on TENAA’s website, we learnt that the Gionee M2017 will launch with a 5.7” QHD screen, 6GB of RAM, a 1.958GHz 8-core processor, and 128GB of built-in storage.

There is no info on when it will be released but we expect it to be unveiled before the year runs out unless they plan to push it to 2017 since the model number is M2017.
