Gionee S6 goes official on specs and price


We’ve seen numerous leaks about the Gionee Elife S6 smartphone, and just as we expected the Gionee S6 has gone official on specs and price today. You’ll notice that the Elife branding has been dropped from the title, and if you want all the details on specifications and more we have that info coming right up.

At the weekend we reported on some leaked images of the Gionee S6 and a price for the smartphone was also tipped. We’re pleased to say that the official Gionee S6 price is a little cheaper as it’s confirmed at CNY 1,699, with availability in China from November 22. The pricing for China is equivalent to around $265, €250, £175, or Rs. 17,600. There’s no news yet on where else the phone will be sold, but we certainly expect that the Gionee S6 will also launch in India at some point.

Gionee S6 specs include a 1.3GHz MediaTek MT6753 octa-core processor, Mali T-720 graphics, and a 5.5-inch AMOLED display with HD resolution of 1280 x 720. It has 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage (expandable to 128GB with microSD card), and a 3150 mAh battery. There’s a 13-megapixel rear camera with LED flash and 1080p video capture, as well as a 5-megapixel front-facing snapper.

The Gionee S6 is a hybrid dual SIM phone with 4G LTE, Bluetooth 4.0, and USB Type-C port. It runs the Android 5.1.1 operating system with the Amigo OS 3.1. The handset measures 151.9mm x 74.6mm x 4 to 6.9mm (thinnest and thickest spots), and it weighs in at 147g. The phone is offered in gold or platinum colors and has a premium metal build. It’s certainly a good-looking handset and we’d like to know what you think.
