The Gionee S11 and S11S launched earlier tonight might be considered as flagships but the Gionee M7 Plus is the true flagship of the night.

Gionee M7 Plus Design

The M7 Plus ditches the metal and glass design of the S11 duo for imported calfskin leather and 21K gold plated metal. The leather covers the back, while the metal frame and the rectangular metal plate housing the rear cameras get the gold-plating treatment.

Up front, the M7 Plus doesn’t look bad at all. The top and bottom bezels are significantly smaller and wear a blue coat rather than black and there are practically no bezels on the sides.

Overall, the Gionee M7 Plus isn’t quite the stunner but it does look better than the last Gionee phone with a leather body – the Gionee M2017.

Gionee M7 Plus Specs

The M7 Plus has a 6.43-inch AMOLED Full View screen with an 86% screen-to-body ratio. There is 6GB of RAM and 128GB of expandable storage which is more than sufficient. For the processor, Gionee has settled for the Snapdragon 660 mobile platform.

The Gionee M7 Plus packs dual rear cameras. One is a 16MP f/1.8 sensor and the other is an 8MP sensor. There is also an 8MP sensor in front for selfies.

The key features of the M7 Plus doesn’t end there. It packs a massive 5000mAh battery with support for 10W wireless fast charging – a first for Gionee phones. There is a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, Bluetooth 5.0, dual SIM slots, and a micro USB port.

Gionee also says the M7 Plus has dual security chips like most of its other flagship phones. One chip is for data encryption and the other is for secure payments and for fingerprint encryption.

Gionee M7 Plus Price

The M7 Plus doesn’t come cheap. Gionee is asking for ¥4399 (~$667) for the flagship. This shouldn’t come as a surprise for those familiar with Gionee’s pricing. The M7 Plus is billed to go on sale January 1, 2018.

    Who on his right mind will buy this expensive mid-tier junk when high-end phones like OnePlus 5T, Galaxy S8, Xperia XZ Premium and Mate 10 exists, some of them at the same price level and some are even cheaper than this!

    I’d give it maximum $350.

      $350 might be a little on the low side. You can’t compare it with OnePlus5T, Galaxy S8 or the XZ Premium as none of those devices are even in the same category. This is a premium mid range phone. Its competition is the Mi Note 3, R11s, Smartisan Nut Pro 2, and a few others. The price range might lead you to believe its competing with SND835 flagship killers but the reality is its positioning itself to punch WELL above its weight in the 660 class. Oppo and Vivo have cornered this market and created the upper tier, while you can see the Note 3 and Smartisan Nut Pro going in the low $300 range. I don’t know what Gionee is thinking or where they are trying to position this phone, but its more than likely going to fail.
