Nearly six months after the Gionee Marathon M5 was unveiled, a Plus variant of the smartphone will be made official. According to a teaser (shown below) posted by the Chinese smartphone manufacturer, the unveiling is set for December 21 in the country.
Unfortunately, apart from the name and the date of unveiling, nothing else is known about this new variant at this point in time. So, it’s currently difficult to say how exactly it will be different from the M5, which is was recently launched outside China.
For those who aren’t already aware, the Marathon M5 is powered by a MediaTek MT6735 SoC with quad-core 1.5GHz CPU, and sports a 5.5 inch (720 x 1280 pixel resolution) AMOLED display. Its selling point is the fact that it includes two 3,010mAh batteries providing a total capacity of 6,020mAh.
