Gionee has launched its latest smartphone, the Gionee M30, in China today. The Gionee M30’s key highlight is the gigantic 10,000mAh battery inside with 25W fast charging support, clearly making it a battery centric smartphone. It is understandably thicker and bulkier than most other smartphones, and its overall design includes slim bezels at the top and bottom, which house the front facing camera and the primary microphone, respectively. It also appears to have rather dated features on overall terms. For example, the leaked TENAA listing of the Gionee M30 had suggested that the smartphone will run on Android Nougat (7.0), which is almost four generations old from the latest generation Android 11, which is expected to launch soon.
Gionee M30 specifications and features
The Gionee M30 is powered by a MediaTek Helio P60 processor, paired with 8GB RAM and 128GB of internet storage space. Its body is built around a 6-inch, HD+ LCD display with 18:9 wide aspect ratio, which sits on a metal frame, along with an aluminium alloy body and faux leather finish at the back. To the rear, the Gionee M30 also features a single 16MP primary rear camera, while the front houses an 8MP selfie camera.
The key feature of the Gionee M30 is the massive, 10,000mAh battery, which also comes with 25W fast charging support. The M30’s battery can also be used to charge other devices using a suitable USB cable (the M30 itself features a USB-C port). The massive battery has added to the overall bulk of the phone, and the Gionee M30 weighs 305 grams as a result. Impressively, however, the M30 is not too thick – it measures only 8.4mm in thickness. In terms of security, the Gionee M30 reportedly has a dedicated encryption chip inside to protect all files, along with 3D face recognition and rear-mounted fingerprint sensors for biometric authentication on the phone.
Gionee M30 price, availability
The Gionee M30 is priced at CNY 1,399 (approx. INR 15,000), and will be available to buyers only in black. The smartphone will go on sale in China from August 31, through online retail website JD.com and other usual retailers in China.
