Gionee M3

Design and Display

Many years have passed since the first-gen Gionee M3, so it goes without being told that we should be expecting a modern design thanks to all the innovation that has surfaced in the smartphone design industry.

The 2021 version of the M3 may not bear a world-class design, but there it does bear great discrepancy from its 2014 predecessor.

Taking the front panel design, we discover a chunk load of bezels has been shaved us leaving us with a near bezels design with a drop notch. The display on this panel is a 6.53-inch IPS LCD as opposed to the 5.0-inch display on its predecessor.

The highlight of this display is a resolution of 720 x 1600 pixels and a density of approximately 269 PPI.

Moving on to the rear, we have a very conspicuous gradient design, with the Gionee branding, indicating it’s a Gionee smartphone. We also have a camera module in the shape of a nonagon. This module majorly bears four cameras and an LED flash.

Enthusiasts who have decided to purchase this smartphone will have four colour options that include Black, Green, Sky, Gray.

The Cameras

The 2021 Gionee M3 cameras are a big-time substantial upgrade over the ones on its 2014 predecessor. Again this isn’t coming as a surprise, owing to the fact that we have had a lot of technological advancements in this space.

On the rear, we have a quad camera setup as opposed to the single-camera setup we had in 2014. This setup comprises of 16MP primary camera, a 5MP ultrawide camera, a 2MP macro camera, and a 2MP depth camera. Video recording on this camera is capped at 1080p @ 30fps.

On the selfie camera, we have a single 8MP camera, capable of shooting videos up to 1080p @ 30fps.

Hardware and Software

The chief performance facilitator went from being a quad-core processor on the 2014 M3 to being an octa-core MediaTek Helio P60 processor on the 2021 Gionee M3, we also have Mali-G72 MP3 GPU as opposed to the Mali-450 GPU from 2014.

What’s more, we have storage and RAM options that include 128GB 6GB RAM, 128GB 8GB RAM, 256GB 8GB RAM.

Moving further, we have a non-removable 5000mAh Li-Po battery which is basically the same capacity seen in 2014, however, we had the Li-ion technology back then. Charging here is hastened by an 18W fast charge capacity.

On the software side, the Gionee M3 2021 runs its interface on top of the Android operating system.


The Gionee M3 features a 3.5mm headphone jack, a USB Type-C 2.0 port with OTG support, low-energy Bluetooth, and a Wifi / Hotspot.

Internet connectivity is capped at 4G LTE, which means enthusiasts won’t have the luxury of 5G connectivity.

Gionee M3 Price and Availability

The price of the Gionee M3 starts around $143, which translates to about 58,845 Naira in Nigeria, 838 GHC in Ghana, and 15,416 KSH in Kenya.

The Gionee M3 was announced on April 7th, 2021, and released for purchase on April 14th, 2021.
