Gionee S6 Pro specifications and price are official for China
Last week we learned the Gionee S6 Pro was gearing up for a release in China, and as expected, today the company launched the device. The Gionee S6 Pro specifications and price are now official in the region, and we have the scoop on what you can expect from the powerful device.
Gionee may not be the biggest brand around, but they have been rather consistent with their smartphone lineup over the past few years. The Gionee S6 Pro is the follow-up to the S6 which was released last year, and if you weren’t impressed by the original, we think the new handset may be a bit more interesting.
Gionee has gone phablet for the Gionee S6 Pro, so you’ll get a 5.5-inch AMOLED display that sports a resolution of 1,280 x 720. Beneath that big slab of glass resides a speedy MediaTek Helio P10 and a whopping 4GB of RAM. They didn’t skimp on the storage either as you’ll get 64GB out of the box, and it’s expandable through a hybrid Dual-SIM setup.
In regards to the snappers, Gionee has installed a 13MP sensor on the backside of the Gionee S6 Pro and it sports an LED flash with PDAF. The front-facing camera isn’t quite as large, but more than sufficient at 8MP. All the options you would expect are present in the connectivity department as well along with 4G LTE, a Fingerprint Scanner, and a USB Type-C port. The Gionee S6 Pro is listed with a 3,130mAh battery and will arrive running Android 6.0 with Amigo on top.
It goes without saying that the Gionee S6 Pro is an option if you reside in China or feel like going the import route. The handset is available in three different hues with Gold, Rose Gold, and Silver with a price tag of 1,999 CNY. That shakes out to around $300 in the states, which is quite the deal considering the specifications.
