Selfie-focused Gionee S6s goes official in India

Gionee S6s

Gionee has officially launched the S6s in India and is now putting the handset up for sale exclusively via Amazon. As expected, the phone is a selfie-focused smartphone for the mid-range market sector thanks to its Rs 17999 price tag.

At that cost, the Gionee S6s will have to complete against the likes of the similarly selfie-centric Oppo F1s. The latter came out earlier this month at Rs 17990 and offers a 16MP front-facing camera. The former boasts of an 8MP selfie snapper equipped with LED flash, screen flash, Face Beauty 2.0 feature, an aperture of f/2.2, and 5P lens.

The Gionee phone’s 13MP rear lens has been showered with features like a Sony IMX258 sensor, an aperture of f/2.0, LED flash, and autofocus abilities. Its back also plays host to a circular fingerprint scanner below the camera module. Under the hood, a 3150mAh battery keeps the device ticking while a 1.3GHz octa-core MediaTek MT6753 processor handles its daily tasks.

The 4G-ready Gionee S6s notably seems to offer more or less the same set of specs as its more expensive predecessor. Notable exceptions include the newer model’s higher-resolution front shooter and Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS.

Here’s a quick look at the main specifications of the Gionee S6s:
