Alongside rumours and the leaks for the Elife E8 smartphone of Gionee, specific specifications for the M5 handset are also tipped online. Notably, the organization via its Weibo account before this week teased the M5. The handset was suggested by the teaser.
The certification listing reveals the double battery smartphone to feature 5.5-inch High Definition (720×1280 pixels) resolution Amoled screen, and run Android 5.1 Lollipop out-of-the-box.
Gionee M5 days after revealing its teaser, has now been spotted listed for certification on China’s Telecommunication Equipment Certification Centre website (Tenaa), the equivalent of the US FCC, along with some details about its specifications.
M5 handset in the listing is seen to be powered by an unspecified 1.3GHz quad-core processor, coupled with 2GB of RAM. The handset is also mentioned to include 16GB inbuilt storage, which can also be expanded via microSD card (up to 128GB). An 8-megapixel rear camera and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera will also come housed inside the smartphone.
Measuring 152x76x8.6mm, the Gionee M5 is listed to weigh 213 grams and be available in Black Gentleman, Noble White, and Gold Glory colour variants. The battery capacities of the handset were not listed.
While the Gionee M5 might be the first Android Lollipop-based smartphone to feature dual batteries, it is not the first in the industry to do so. Innos D6000, a smartphone announced at MWC conference this year, also features two batteries.
Gionee also seems to be gearing up for the launch of Elife E8, as it too was listed on the same website earlier this month, revealing some specifications. The smartphone as per the listing features a 6-inch QHD (1440×2560 pixels) resolution AMOLED display; 2GHz octa-core processor; 3GB of RAM; 32GB of inbuilt storage expandable via microSD card (up to 128GB); and 3520mAh battery.
Gionee additionally appears to be gearing up for the start of Elife E8, before this month, as it was recorded to the exact same site, showing some specifications.
