Gionee not only facilitates the requirements of the consumers that seek for budget-friendly smartphones but also the luxury segment as well. In December last year, the company took the wraps off its Gionee M2017 that came equipped with unimaginable features and a hefty price-tag. Gionee, it seems, is now working on the M2017 successor. An unnamed Gionee smartphone – believed to be the Gionee M2018 – was recently spotted on the official TENAA website.

According to a report published by Android Soul, the listing spotted on TENAA did not carry any revealing information regarding the alleged M2018. However, the possible #Design of the smartphone was certainly given away through the listing.

The M2018 looks very similar to last year’s M2017. The only difference exists is in terms of the placement and style of the earpiece. The Gionee M2018 model seems to be carrying a regular earpiece. However, M2017 consisted of an earpiece that featured tiny holes on the tip.

The recently-spotted device appears to be built out of metal, and at the same time, the rear panel dons a leather appearance. The physical home button is located at its standard area; bottom of the front panel. A fingerprint scanner will come embedded in the home button. Meanwhile, the power and volume buttons are placed on the right-hand side of the handset. The Gionee M2017 featured a dual rear camera setup; therefore, Gionee M2018 is also expected to sport the same camera specifications.

Powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 653

As reported by Android Headlines, the Gionee M2017 featured a 5.7-inch QHD AMOLED display with 2,560 x 1,440 pixels resolution.
