Just two days after the official launch of the M7, Gionee announced another phone from the same series named M7 Power at the Thailand Mobile Expo 2017. It has a massive 5,000 mAh power cell, but is otherwise less powerful than the Gionee M7.
The Gionee M7 Power has a Snapdragon 435 SoC with octa-core 1.4 GHz processor. It is paired with 4 GB RAM and 64 GB storage, and there is a microSD slot for expanding it by up to 256 GB. You do get dual SIM support but one of the slots is a hybrid one so you get either a second line or memory expansion, but not both.

The display is 6” in diagonal with 18:9 ratio and offers HD+ resolution or 1440 x 720 pixels. It means there are no buttons on the front, only a tiny bezel on top and bottom. Over the screen an 8 MP selfie camera is positioned, while the main one on the back has 13 MP sensor.
The Gionee M7 Power is priced at THB9,990 ($299) and is offered in dark blue, black and gold.
