New releases are still coming from Chinese manufacturers even when the holiday season is very much upon us. As it appears, the employees at Gionee might not be getting the day off on Christmas and the day after too, since the company just announced that they will be launching their dual-curved phone, the Gionee M2017 on the 26th of December.
The Gionee M2017 is touted as a flagship aimed at professionals, businessmen and businesswomen. The launch is scheduled to take place at Mission Hills, Haikou and it seems it will be anchored by Movie Director, Feng Xiaogang whose wife, Xu Fan, is also a brand ambassador at Gionee.
The device is the first phone from Gionee to feature a dual-curved screen like the Samsung S7 Edge and Xiaomi Mi Note 2. Other specs already leaked says the Gionee M2017 will have a 5.7” screen with a Quad HD display, 6GB of RAM, an octa-core processor, dual rear-cameras, and a massive 7000mAh battery to keep you going through your busy schedule.
It also sports a fingerprint scanner/physical home button in front and features a leather-like material at the back. There is no idea of the price yet but we expect it to cost around the same price as the Mi Note 2.
