Gionee has introduced a new smartphone, called Gionee M2, with a 4200 mAh battery to compete with the freshly launched Micromax Canvas Power. Gionee M2 has been launched at Rs 10,999 which is about a grand higher than the Micromax Canvas Power handset’s price of Rs 9,900.
Gionee M2 comes with a 5-inch display that offers 854×480 pixel resolution which is not the crispest resolution offering display in the said price range. The smartphone is powered by a quad-core ARM Cortex-A7 based mobile chipset clocked at 1.3 GHz. This mobile chipset also integrates Mali 400MP GPU for decent graphics support. Gionee has paired this mobile chipset with 1 GB RAM which makes it a decent budget level configuration – at least on the paper.
For storage, the M2 offers 4 GB on-board storage out of which some will be reserved for the operating system. A user can always add up to 32 GB micro SD card in the memory card slot. At its rear rests an 8 megapixel camera along with an LED flash. The rear camera allows clicking 100 snaps in burst mode. In the front lies a 2 megapixel camera for video calls.
Gionee M2 features dual-SIM with dual standby feature. Along with that it has support for dual-Band 3G network in one of the SIM slots. It also comes with WiFi for internet connectivity. Gionee has offered WiFi direct feature along with that.
Besides, the Gionee M2 has FM Radio, Bluetooth, GPS with A-GPS support and USB OTG support that allows using the phone as a power bank. The Gionee M2 will be offered in White and Black colours promising 31.5 hours of talk time over 2G network with the massive 4200 mAh battery.
Gionee M2 smartphone directly competes with the recently launched Micromax Canvas Power.
