Gionee launches smartphone that serves as power bank

The Chinese smartphone maker Gionee has launched the new Marathon M5 smartphone on the Indian market. Unlike many other smartphones the Marathon M5 has a unique feature – it can be used as a power bank.

The device is available in three colors – gold, black and white – and is based on a quad-core MediaTek MT6735 processor at 1.5 GHz. It has two versions – the first one has 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal memory, while the second one ups the RAM and storage to 3 GB and 32 GB. Furthermore the Marathon M5 sports a 5.5-inch AMOLED display at 1280 x 720 pixels, a 13 MP rear camera, a 5 MP front camera and runs Amigo 3.1 – a mobile OS, based on Android 5.1 Lollipop. The battery inside the smartphone deserves special attention – it packs 6020 mAh of power, lasts up to 4 days on a single charge and features a special extreme mode where the smartphone can spend 62 hours in stand-by mode with only 5 per cent of battery charge. The battery also features reverse charging so the Marathon M5 can serve as a power bank in case of need.

In India the new Gionee smartphone sells for around USD 270.
