One key concern when most of us buy a Smartphone is the battery life. As much as the mobile technology has grown, the battery technology has not coped up with the other fast-paced hardware advancement we have seen in this space. The strength and selling point of Gionee Marathon series is the massive battery it houses inside.
Gionee Smartphone today announced the launch of its latest in the Marathon series, the Gionee M4 in India that packs a 5000mAh battery. The company claims the M4 provides up to 50 hours of talk time and 440 hours of standby time. Priced at Rs 15,499 ($243) , the Marathon M4 is a dual-SIM, 4G LTE Smartphone.
Talking about the specs, the M4 features a 5-inch display with a 720p resolution and is powered by a 1.3GHz quad-core processor with a 64-bit architecture, 2GB RAM and 16GB of internal storage. It also has an external microSD slot that can add up to 32GB of external storage. On the software side, the M4 runs on Android 5.0 Lollipop with Amigo 3.0 UI layered on top of it.
On the photography side, the Marathon M4 has an 8-megapixel rear camera with LED flash and a 5MP front facing camera. The Gionee Marathon M4 comes in white and black colors.
So a massive 5000mAh battery would definitely cheer certain segment of ‘power’ users (pun intended!) who would otherwise drain their battery pretty soon.
