While everyone felt Gionee was dead, the Chinese company has walked in with a new phone called Gionee M30. While everything of this new handset was mediocre, it boasts with a massive battery that outperforms all working smartphones in the industry now. Let’s check everything about it;
Gionee M30 Specifications
Gionee has been a known brand for giving fair specifications for the price but was quashed by other Chinese contenders with high quality and sharp pricing. After going to the verge of bankruptcy, Gionee is now coming up again with a new smartphone – Gionee M30.
The Gionee M30 has a 6″ HD+ display with 720 × 1440p resolution and in 18:9 aspect ratio. It has a linear notch or an old-style line to equip the front camera, speaker and other sensors on the display. The phone seems to be rugged as it has rubber finishing at the rear, with sides steel plated for strong hardware protection. This felt a full-display BlackBerry.
Under the hood, it has the MediaTek’s Helio P60 SoC, which is an octa-core processor having four Cortex-A73 and four Cortex-A53, all running at 2.0GHz speeds. Having the Mali G72 MP3 GPU, it runs on Android OS and comes with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of onboard storage.
Regarding cameras, it has a single rear camera as a 16-megapixel lens and a single front camera as 8-megapixel. This seemed intriguing while every other player in the industry is stuffing 3-4 lenses. Yet, this could be understood as this Gionee handset is probably directed towards rugged users and lower business class, as it has an encryption chip for added security.
At last, it has an audio jack, Bluetooth 4.2, Wi-Fi, GPS, USB 2.0 Type-C and a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor. Coming to its power, Gionee M30 has a massive 10,000mA battery with 25W fast charging support! This is the second-highest battery capacity after Energizer’s Pop handset worth 18,000mAh capacity.
While the Energizer’s phone didn’t make it to the crowd, it seems the Gionee is soon to reach the mass, making it the highest capacitated phone lasting long. Until now, the upcoming Samsung’s M51 is touted to be highest since its listing of 7000mAh battery.
Gionee M30 Price and Availability
The Gionee M30 comes in a single black color option and is priced at CNY 1,399 ($203) for its sole 8GB + 128GB variant. This handset will soon be sold through JD.com in China, but the international availability is yet to be announced.
