The Gionee M2017 packs a 7000 mAh battery. Did I hear someone shout hallelujah? Not only that, the device features specs considered as high end specs. The price is also high end price as expected.
An introduction to the specs of the device, you are looking at a phone packing 6GB of RAM, 128 GB internal storage which unfortunately, isn’t expandable. Dual camera set up, 4G LTE support, fingerprint and more.

Price Of Gionee M2017 and Availability
Launch price in USD starts at $1007. If you ask me, that’s quite pricey compared to current flagships in the mobile market.
Regarding availability, the device is already launched. However, it would take quite some time before it gets to Nigeria and perhaps, other countries other than China and the US.
