Gionee has officially launched the S6 Pro which is successor to last years S6 which featured specs like 5.5-inch 720p AMOLED display alongside 3GB of RAM. While the smartphone featured quite acceptable specs, the S6 lured in most of the users due to its thin and light metal unibody as well as impressive performance.
While the last years Gionee S6 had impressive design, the Gionee S6 Pro is no exception here – the S6 Pro is also built with metal. The handset features 5.5-inch display, however this time Gionee has opted in for IPS screen with a bump in the resolution to 1080p. The Gionee S6 Pro also features impressive mid-range chipset – MediaTek’s Helio P10 with an octa-core Cortex A-53 processor, accompanied by Mali-T860MP2 GPU and 4GB of RAM.
Camera wise, the S6 Pro features similar 13MP sensor like its predecessor – S6, although Gionee has implemented some new feature like phase-detection autofocus, alongside an upgraded 8MP selfie shooter upfront. The Gionee S6 Pro comes with 64GB of expandable storage, dual hybrid SIM (one slot for SIM card, whereas the other for either SIM card or microSD card).
Other noticeable features include a fingerprint scanner at the back, 4G connectivity, and a USB Type-C port for data exchanging. The whole phone is powered by an average 3,130mAh battery and runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow on top of Gionee’s Amigo 2.3 UI.
In terms of pricing, the Gionee S6 Pro can be purchased for $300 in China with various color options to choose from, including Gold, Silver, and the infamous Rose Gold. There is no word about the availability of the S6 Pro outside China, however we expect it to see in Nepal.
