Gionee has announced the arrival of the Gionee Marathon M5 Plus in India for a price of Rs. 26,999 (that’s about 80,000 to 120,000 Naira going by the recent exchange rate). The phone is the upgrade to Gionee’s Marathon M5 smartphone.

The Gionee Marathon M5 Plus was launched in China back in December 2015, and will be hitting the Indian shores on Thursday 28th of April, 2016.

One key upgrade of the smartphone over its M5 is in the battery department. Although the Marathon M5 Plus features a smaller 5020mAh battery when compared to the Marathon M5, it now comes with an optimised battery, as against the M5’s which had a drop in its capacity over time.

According to Gionee, the Marathon M5 Plus’ battery retains 90 percent (4500mAh) of its original capacity after 600 charging cycles. This translates to roughly 2 years of usage.

There are improvements in the battery software department as well – the Gionee M5 Plus will alert users about apps that drain the smartphone’s battery.

There’s also support for Fast charging technology which enables it to charge from zero to 100 percent in 117 minutes (1 hour 57 minutes), according to Gionee.

The Gionee Marathon M5 Plus comes in a metal-clad body which measures 160.9×81.2×8.4mm, and weighs 211.5 grams.

It sports a 6-inch full-HD (1080×1920 pixels) resolution Amoled display with a pixel density of 368ppi.

The phablet is powered by Android 5.1 Lollipop operating system with Gionee’s Amigo 3.1 on top. It also has a fingerprint sensor at the back for enhanced security.

The device is powered by an octa-core MediaTek MT6753 CPU clocked at 1.3GHz, and 3GB of RAM. It houses 64GB of internal space which can be expanded up to 128GB via a microSD card.

On the camera front, the Gionee Marathon M5 Plus has a 13 megapixel autofocus rear camera along with a 5-megapixel fixed focus front-facing camera.

As for the connectivity, the smartphone supports 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth v4.0, GPS, and USB Type-C.

It will be available in Polar Gold and Champagne Gold colour variants.
