After announcing the Marathon M5 lite last month, Chinese smartphone manufacturer Gionee has unveiled a mini variant of its Marathon M5 smartphone. The device is powered by a Mediatek MT6580 SoC and sports a 5-inch (1280 x 720 pixel resolution) IPS display.
Gionee Marathon M5 mini has 2GB RAM and 16GB expandable internal memory, and packs in a large 4,000 mAh battery. In terms of camera, the M5 mini features an 8MP rear and a 5MP front shooter. Measuring 143.5 x 71 x 9.6mm, the handset runs Android 5.1 Lollipop with Amigo UI 3.1 on top. Connectivity options include 3G, GPS, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi.
Commenting on the launch, the company's Nigeria Marketing Director Somoye Habeeb said, "Gionee focuses on innovation, efficiency and affordability in ways that other brands donít. Having received a warm reception from the Nigerian market when we introduced the Gionee M5 a few months ago, Gionee is following up with the M5 Mini."
"The Gionee M5 Mini as the name implies, is a compact version of the M5. It is just as effective and stylish, but more affordable. It can be considered a sequel to the highly durable M5, and is the latest phone to be released in Nigeria," he added.
There was, however, no word on the M5 mini's price.
