Gionee have announced the vanilla version of M12 series. The Gionee M12 is supposed to be smaller model of the M12 Pro which was announced a few months ago. Recall that M12 Pro came with a Mediatek Helio P60,a rectangular camera design and a dewdrop notch. But the new vanilla version has a larger 6.55-inches HD+ display with a Tiny-Dot notch overhead.

Something interesting about its specs is that, the Gionee M12 comes with two CPU and memory options on the inside; the first option has 4GB RAM and 64GB ROM, and backed by a 1.8GHz octa-core Mediatek Helio A25 CPU, while the second option has 6GB RAM and 128GB inbuilt storage, and source strength from a 2.0GHz octa-core, Helio P22 Chipset from Mediatek.
