The M2017 is the latest phone from Gionee in its ‘M’ series. The main highlight of the device is Ji 7000mAh polymer lithium-ion battery with its own intelligent power management system and low power consumption display. The display which promises with the battery a 25hrs of video playback and 915.42 hours of standby. With it’s QuickCharge 3.0 support and dual chip charging, it can charge in 24W.
Fun fact is, even though it has a 7000mAh battery, it’s actually because of two separate 3500mAh battery working together.
The other specifications are as followed:

Awkwardly enough, it doesn’t sport a microSD card slot or even a headphone jack. Which follows the tradition made by LeEco and Apple.
