The M2107 isn’t just a glorified powerbank, however. Gionee’s outfitted the device with a 5.7-inch QHD AMOLED curved display, 6GB of RAM, twin rear cameras (12-megapixel, 13-megapixel) and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 653 processor. The phone also has a fingerprint scanner, a rather premium looking exterior made out of metal and leather, 128GB/256GB of internal storage and Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
With all the bells and whistles in the M2107, it’s not surprising that the phone doesn’t come cheap – the 128GB version of the device is priced at a steep RMB 6999, or Php 49.8K. The 256GB version is even more expensive, going for RMB 16,999, or an astounding Php 121K. Obviously the pricing of the phone means it’s targeting a very select (read: moneyed) type of consumer – don’t expect this phone to hit our shores anytime soon.
