The Gionee Marathon M5 has been unveiled in India and is set to retail exclusively through Flipkart for Rs 17999. This version of the phone is a superior variant of the one which was released globally.

While the international Gionee Marathon M5 has 16GB of ROM and 2GB of RAM, the Indian model has 32GB of ROM and 3GB of RAM. The handset’s claim to fame is its massive 6020mAh battery setup, which is composed of 2 3010mAh batteries. The combination supposedly provides 4 days of continuous power.

The Marathon M5 further comes with an extreme mode which restricts tools like calls and messages to boost the standby time up to 62 hours at only 5% of charge. The device stands out from the crowd by virtue of also doubling up as a powerbank. Buyers will have to purchase a separate reverse charging cable for that to be possible, though.
