This seems to address the battery shortcomings of the Gionee E8, now carried by BLU as the Pure XL. Will BLU carry this one too?

The fingerprint scanner has been moved to the front. And the Android buttons light up this time.

Unknown CPU, six-inch 1920 x 1080 resolution Super AMOLED screen, 3GBs of RAM, 64GBs of internal storage, microSD card slot, unknown camera resolution. Battery is a whopping 5,020 mAh, which should give it a full day. Fast charging also included. This was spotted earlier at the Chinese TENAA agency.

The price is 2,499 yuan, which is US$385.75. That price is lower than the US$600-plus of the E8 phone. (But as we’ve seen with the BLU Pure XL, when BLU picks up a phone, the price can dramatically change for the American market.)

This introduction is so new that few sites have articles yet. But Phone Radar is reporting the CPU is a MediaTek MT6753 octa-core processor at 1.3GHz and there’s a USB-C port that, unfortunately, is just USB 2.0 speed.
