The Gionee M6 smartphone of the marathon series was announced in July 2016 and released in September along with the 6″ Gionee M6 plus in the same year. With this power-packed phone, no doubt, the China-based communication enterprise targeted countries with erratic power. This product is provided with a huge battery of 5000mAh capable of serving you for 2 days without charging. It boasts a 5.5″ display and a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels higher than its predecessor -Gionee M5.
Indeed, the 4GB RAM with 1.8GHz octa-core (helio P10) processor paved the way to compete amongst its rivals.
The 13MP rear camera would make a nice shot and the 8MP front camera would add glamor to making a selfie with comfort.
The Gionee M6 succeeded the celebrated Marathon M5 released in 2015. Notable improvements include the increase in RAM and the fingerprint sensor.
The smartphone features a 4G LTE band that offers a speedy download of up to 300 Mbps. The following Communication network providers now support the trending 4G LTE (Low Technology Evolution) band in Nigeria:
MTN 4G LTE Band: supports band 7 (2600MHz) & 20 (800MHz)
