Nine months after going bankrupt, Chinese smartphone manufacturer Gionee is now making a return by launching two new smartphones – the Gionee M11 and Gionee M11s in China.
The news comes through the official WeChat channel of Gionee which stated six key highlights about the Gionee M11 series, reports ITHome. Both the Gionee M11 and M11S feature a similar design with dual cameras at the back, 2.5D curved waterdrop notch displays, rear fingerprint scanner and glass-like panels.
It’s believed that the Gionee M11 and M11S share the same specifications of 6GB RAM and 128GB storage on both the devices. The launch posters reveal a 4,000mAh battery unit, meaning one of the phones will at least come with a battery of that capacity. Both phones are powered by an unspecified2.0GHz octa-core processor made by MediaTek.
However, the TENAA listing of the new Gionee devices shows different battery units on the M11 and M11S. The listing as shared by MyDrivers reveals that one of the two phones, the M11 features a 6.21-inch display with a resolution of720 x 1520 pixels and 5,000mAh battery. The M11S will carry a 4,000mAh battery and a 6.3-inch display with a 2340 x 1080 pixels resolution. The phone with the larger screen, M11S will measure 160.6 x 75.8 x 8.4 mm and weigh170 grams while the regular M11 will be of the size 157.6 x 76.4 x 9.4 mm and a weight of 180 grams.
The promotional poster also reveals a 16MP + 5MP dual-camera setup on both the phones. Users will be able to differentiate between the two phones by just looking at the placement of the LED flash which is inside the same module on one phone while it’s positioned outside the main housing in the other. There’s a 13MP front-facing camera on both the Gionee M11 and M11S.
The phone with the LED flash in the same housing will have a circular fingerprint scanner while the other will have an oval-shaped fingerprint sensor.
Gionee M11 runs on Android 8.1 Oreo while the M11S runs the more recent Android 9 Pie. Additional features of the Gionee M11 and M11S include fingerprint shortcuts for calls, taking pictures and scrolling, lock-screen memory leaning and power consumption management.
