The CPU of the Gionee M7 has eight Cortex-A53 cores, four of them clocked at 2.3 GHz. There is 6 GB RAM and the internal memory is 64 GB with microSD slot for up to 256 GB more.
The screen has a 6.01” diagonal and comes with a resolution of 2160 x 1080 pixels.
There is a dual camera on the back. The main sensor is 16 MP with the secondary being 8 MP. The back also houses an LED flash and a circular fingerprint screen.
The power button and the volume rockers are on the right side and the phone lacks a home button on the front because of the big screen. One thing that has to be on the front is the selfie camera – Gionee put an 8 MP snapper next to the earpiece.
Gionee offers the M7 in five colors – Sapphire Blue, Star Blue, Maple Red, Champagne Gold and Black. It will be available in China for CNY2,799 ($422) from September 26.
