Gionee is expected to launch Gionee M6 and M6 Plus smartphones in India. Both the devices are officially launched last month in China. But the company is planning to bring new smartphone under the S series in India. The official launch event will be held on August 22nd in New Delhi, India. As of now, there is no information about the device, but the #SelfieWithFlash reveals the device to feature front facing LED flash.
While the Gionee S8 that was unveiled at the MWC 2016 in February is not yet made available in India. Though the Gionee S8 with the high-end specifications and 3D Touch display will be a good option, instead the company will be launching a new smartphone called Gionee S6s that comes with a metal body and sports mid-range specifications. Earlier the company had launched the Gionee S6 and S6 Pro under the S series.
The Gionee S6s looks similar to the Gionee S6 Pro, and most of the specifications remain same on both these devices. It sports a 5.5-inch Full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels) display with a 2.5D glass laid on top. Under the hood is the MediaTek MT6753 octa-core processor clocked at 1.3GHz. It packs 3GB of RAM, 32GB of onboard storage and also includes MicroSD card slot. On the back of the device is a circular fingerprint sensor that makes the S6s even more secure.
It comes with a 13MP IMX258 rear camera with PDAF and f/2.0 aperture. On the front is an 8MP front camera with f/2.2 aperture and 5P lens. Both these cameras are assisted by a LED flash. The device measures 154.5 x 75.6 x 8.27 mm and is backed by a 3,150mAh non-removable battery. The Gionee S6s runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow based Amigo 3.2 UI.
