The Gionee Marathon M5 mini will be available in Golden color in Nigeria but the pricing has not been announced yet.

Commenting on the launch, Marketing Director, Somoye Habeeb, Gionee Nigeria, said:

“Gionee focuses on innovation, efficiency and affordability in ways that other brands don’t. Having received a warm reception from the Nigerian market when we introduced the Gionee M5 a few months ago, Gionee is following up with the M5 Mini.

The Gionee M5 Mini as the name implies, is a compact version of the M5. It is just as effective and stylish, but more affordable. It can be considered a sequel to the highly durable M5, and is the latest phone to be released in Nigeria.”
