We recently reported that the Gionee S11 will make its debut on November 26. As it seems, this won’t be the only model to launch that day. The company will reportedly also introduce the Gionee M7 Plus at the same event. While a couple of weeks back images of the device surfaced, we didn’t know too much about its specs until now. Thankfully, an AnTuTu Benchmark listing clears things up for us and offers a good look at what the Gionee M7 Plus will have to offer. Naturally, it will be even greater than the Gionee M7 that launched back in September.
The M7 Plus will feature a huge screen, with a 6.43-inch diagonal. The M7 was already quite large with its 6.01-inch display, but the M7 Plus takes things even further. Naturally, the smartphone’s display will come with an 18:9 aspect ratio. The handset will run Gionee’s software, Amigo 4, which is based o the Android 7 Nougat. As for the design, as the previously leaked images suggest, it is quite a unique one, with the leather back and the all-screen front. Of course, the leather back might be only an option, not the base model. Even so, the Gionee M7 Plus has an interesting look with some pointy corners combined with a rounded top and bottom.
The AnTuTu listing finally reveals what will be under the hood too. The Gionee M7 Plus will reportedly sport a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoC, which is, at this point, one of the best mid-range chipsets available on the market, if not the best. The upcoming smartphone will include 6GB of memory and 64GB flash storage, which is quite amazing for a mid-range handset, even by today’s standards. The 16MP primary camera of the smartphone will be capable of shooting 4K video, which is also a nice feature. The front- facing camera will feature an 8MP sensor. Unfortunately, the listing doesn’t reveal the size of the battery. Hopefully, it will be a big enough one to ensure a decent battery life for such a mammoth. The Full HD+ display of the handset will definitely use up a lot of battery, so a large one is desperately needed for this device.
The Gionee M7 Plus will launch, as we already mentioned, on November 26, alongside the Gionee S11. Then, we will find out everything there is to know about these handsets, their pricing, and their availability.
