Gionee has launched the successor of Marathon M5 and M5 Plus with the M6 and M6 Plus today at an event in China. The Marathon M5 is scheduled to launch in Nepal on March.
The Gionee Marathon M-series always had an enormous battery, and the new iteration follows the same trend. The M6 boasts a 5000mAh battery and the M6 Plus comes equipped with a 6020mAh battery. Both these handset offers 9V/2A dual charge chips that offer “faster, safer, cooler” charging capabilities. In terms of other hardware specs, the M6 comes with a 5.5-inch 1080P display and the M6 Plus has a slightly bigger 6-inch 1080P display. The displays are of AMOLED technology so you can expect vibrant colors. Both these phone is powered by a Mediatek MT6755 SoC with eight cortex A53 cores running at a higher frequency of 2.0 GHz.
In terms of memory, the M6 and M6 Plus offers 4GB of RAM and either 64 or 128GB onboard storage. Both these handset offers dual SIM support with 4G LTE and has dedicated microSD slot that is expandable upto 128GB. Camera wise, both the M6 and M6 Plus sports a 13-megapixel rear camera with Sony IMX 258 sensor and an 8-megapixel selfie camera. They are currently running on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow with Gionee’s inhouse Amigo 3.2 UI layered on top. You also get the taste of USB Type-C connector for charging and data syncing.
The main highlight of the M6 and M6 Plus is the added Security Features, apart from a Fingerprint Scanner that’s located in the home button. It has a unique security chip that the company claims will keep the phone’s data encrypted. Working with the fingerprint sensor, the chip will keep the call logs, documents, data, photos etc. stored safely and is unhackable and hence will remain confidential to the owner. However, the international version, including the one that will launch in Nepal, won’t have this security feature. Available in Gold and Latte Gold color variants, both the M5 and M5 Plus offers metal unibody design. In terms of connectivity, these phones offer WiFi b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.2, GPS, and IR blaster.
