Gionee M2017 is certified in China carrying a 5.7-inch display with QHD resolution, 7000mAh battery
The Gionee M20017 has received its TENAA certification in China. The phone, not to be confused with Samsung's SM-W2017 high-end clamshell, happens to be powered by a massive 7000mAh juicer that provides long lasting battery life for users. Even the most hard working power user won't have to worry about finding an outlet for more than a couple of days.

The Gionee M2017 features a 5.7-inch AMOLED display with a 1440 x 2560 resolution. A MediaTek Helio P10 SoC is under the hood with a true octa-core 1.95GHz CPU, and a dual-core Mali-T860 GPU. 6GB of RAM is inside along with 128GB of native storage. There is no microSD slot on the phone.

A 13MP camera resides on the back of the phone, and there is an 8MP front-facing camera for selfies and video chats. A fingerprint scanner is embedded in the home button, and Android 6.0.1 is pre-installed. This is not a dainty phone as it measures 10.65mm thick and weighs 230 grams. The Gionee M2017 will be available in your favorite color, assuming that your favorite color is Black. 

With TENAA certification out of the way, we might see the Gionee M2017 unveiled shortly.

This looks like it just came out of the "typical" cheap Chinese phone what we're used to seeing when Chinese phones first came to market.

One of the most hideous designs I have ever seen.

Hurray!!!! The galaxy S3 ugliness has finally been surpassed and what a battle it was, but in the end gionee came out victorious after warding off strong challenges from the galaxy G5, S5, Pixel and the reigning champion, the SAMSUNG GALAXY S3. Bravo!!!!!

The Galaxy S3 was deemed ugly? By who? I've never heard anyone say that phone was ugly. But the Galaxy S5 was definitely ugly.

Love the Vertu styling of this battery beast! Gives it a premium look!

There's a lot going on in the back of the phone. Should be a dream for those who need the longevity though.

Why NOT at least SD625 + FullHD combination like Moto Z Play???

This looks like some obnoxious Vertu angular design, can't say I like it at all. But a 5.7" 1440p screen, 128GB internal storage and 7,000 mah battery sounds amazing.
