Gionee M6 and M6 Plus indeed sports humongous batteries under the hood – 5000mAH and 6020mAh to be precise. That aside, they also come with the ability to be used a powerbank for pumping any other device you happen to be carrying around with you. The Chinese firm has also paid attention towards the security and privacy of its smartphone users. The Gionee Marathon M6 not only comes with a fingerprint sensor but also an encrypted chip that securely stores a user’s personal data. This is very much useful for users using their smartphone for mobile payments. Sadly, though the encrypted chip will only be present in the variant of the Gionee M6 selling in China. For users internationally as well as in India, the Gionee M6 will come equipped with a fingerprint scanner, privacy protection and malware destruction capabilities.
