The Chinese Giant in Smartphone market once again ready for stunning entry in market. Gionee’s announced there two highly enticipated phones during their official event conducting in Beijing. The two brothers ready to explore the market having some special features one is known for its gorgeous photography, while another is known for its battery life. The two models are Gionee Elife E8 another is Marathon M5 aims to impress the customers.

The Gionee Elife E8 was the centerpiece of the announcement. Gionee Elife E8 Special features are short listed here;

Display: 6 inch QHD display with 490 ppi pixel density
Processor: Octa-core clocked up to 2GHz
Storage: 64 GB, 3 GB RAM
GPU: Power VR 6200
Software: Android OS, (Lollipop)
Chipset: Mediatek Helio* 10



The main attraction of the Gionee Elife E8 is its 24MP primary camera offers the highest pixel count now in a major smartphone, if you don’t count the Nokia Lumia 1020 of course, and the almost ancient Nokia PureView 808. Software tricks allow it to produce images up to a jaw-dropping 120MP resolution.

The camera apps take just 0.8s to launch and there’s phase detection autofocus which Gionee claims focuses in 0.08s to 0.2s. The sensor sits behind a six-element lens with sapphire glass front element. There’s optical image stabilization which is able to correct for shakes up to 1.5-degrees in angle. The smartphone will also offer dual Tone LED flash, lossless zoom, and 4K video recording.

The Marathon M5 aims to address what Gionee calls a major “pain point” in today’s smartphone use, and that’s battery life. While other manufacturers have gone for replaceable batteries or fast charging, Gionee has taken a slightly different route.

Marathon M5


The innovative smartphone packs a pair of batteries instead, each 3,010mAh in capacity for a total of 6,020mAh. Fast charge is supported too, and the phone uses dual charging chips, to charge both batteries at the same time, similar to Oppo’s VOOC concept. That results in faster charging times, while keeping temperature down, and thus increasing safety.

There’s also some software optimizations to help in prolonged autonomy, like background app management and and smart power consumption management. All that should mean that the Marathon M5 will last you four full days of heavy use. They’ve also achieved that while keeping thickness to a more-than-manageable 8.5mm.
Battery tech aside, the M5 is a pretty regular lower midrange device. It sports a 5.5-inch 720p AMOLED display, which is not exactly a tech masterpiece, but should do the job, while keeping energy consumption low. 2GB of RAM and 16GB of built-in storage are on board.

The Marathon M5 comes with dual-SIM slots and a separate microSD slot for expansion, so you don’t have to choose which feature to use. There’s also a 13MP/5MP camera combo for capturing memories.

Price for the Gionee Marathon M5 is quoted at CNY 2,299 ($370) and it will be available for purchase starting June 25. The Elife E8 will be pricier and set you back CNY 2,299 ($645) and you’ll be able to have one from July 15 on.
