Gionee is launching a new device under the S series called S6s in India. And we expect that it will be launched at the official launch event on 22nd August in New Delhi, India. We are already anticipating the launch of Gionee M6 and M6 Plus smartphones in India, which were launched officially in China last month. But instead of getting any information on the launch date, we have this Gionee S6s to be launched on August 22.
We have no confirmation about the specs of this device yet, but we have enough information to get the whole idea how the phone would be. Also, there is Gionee S8 that was unveiled in February this year, is also expected to make its way to the Indian market because of its high-end specs and 3D touch display. But now it looks like we have S6s coming to India first. The hashtag #SelfieWithFlash says it will have a LED Flash on front side beside the camera. It will have a metal body and a 5.5 inch Full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels) display with a 2.5D curved glass. It will be powered by the MediaTek MT6753 octa-core processor clocked at 1.3 GHz with 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of inbuilt storage which can be expanded via a MicroSD card. A circular fingerprint sensor will be at the back side of the phone.
Coming to the camera, it will feature a 13 MP IMX258 rear camera with PDAF and f/2.0 aperture. The front camera will be 8 MP with f/2.2 aperture and 5P lens. And both the cameras will have flash as mentioned earlier. The Gionee S6s will have Android 6.0 Marshmallow based on Gionee’s Amigo 3.2 UI running the device and will be powered by a 3,150mAh non-removable battery. It will also have several pre-installed apps, UC browser, True caller, etc.
The device will come with a hybrid slot with dual standby mode. It will also support 4G LTE along with VoLTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, and a MicroUSB 2.0 port. And it will be available in 3 color variants, Gold, Rose Gold, and Silver. We don’t have any information about the price and availability yet. So stay tuned for more.
