Gionee S6 smartphone with VoLTE now available in India for 260 Euros
Unveiled in November of last year for users in China, the Gionee S6 is now on sale in India for the equivalent of 260 Euros. The Elife smartphone is available in Gold, Rose Gold, and Silver colors.
Specifications for the Gionee S6 include:
- 5.5-inch Super AMOLED HD display (78 percent screen-to-body ratio)
- MediaTek MT6753 SoC
- 13 MP rear + 5 MP front cameras
- 3 GB RAM
- 32 GB eMMC
- 3150 mAh battery
- Type-C port w/ fast charging
- 6.9 mm thickness
- 148 g
- 4G LTE, VoLTE, Dial SUM, 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0
- Amigo OS 3.1 (based on Android 5.1 Lollipop
While it doesn't utilize a full metal unibody chassis, the manufacturer claims that 89 percent of the case is metal. The internal hardware is impressive given the sub 300 Euro price point, though MediaTek SoCs are common on competing budget Chinese smartphones that may or may not provide the smoothest of performances.
The Chinese manufacturer recently announced a $50 million USD partnership with Foxconn and Dixon to share production facilities in India. Thus, it was only a matter of time before additional Gionee products made their way to the country. Gionee also unveiled the smaller but similar 5-inch Marathon M5 Mini late last month with no release date or prices as of this writing.
