Gionee is a China-based company you’ve probably heard of by now. This is not exactly one of the largest Chinese smartphone manufacturers, but the company is quite popular both in China and India. Gionee has introduced a number of big battery ‘Marathon’ devices in the last year or so, and their Elife E8 flagship phablet has landed last year. Back in November last year, Gionee has introduced a metal-clad Gionee S6 device, which is basically a mid-range offering by the company. Well, it seems like Gionee is planning to release a more powerful variant of that smartphone, the Gionee S6 Pro, read on.
The Gionee S6 Pro popped up on TENAA (China’s equivalent to the FCC) quite recently. This smartphone will come with upgraded specs, but also a different design on the outside. The Gionee S6 Pro will sport a 5.5-inch 1080p (1920 x 1080) AMOLED display, 4GB of RAM and 32GB / 64GB of expandable internal storage. Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 652 or MediaTek’s Helio P10 will fuel this smartphone, TENAA’s listing doesn’t reveal the brand of the SoC. The 13-megapixel camera will be available on the back of this phone, and an 8-megapixel snapper will be available up front. The 3,130mAh battery will also be a part of this package, and Android 6.0 Marshmallow will come pre-installed here with Gionee’s Amigo OS. The device will measure 153 x 75.3 x 7.6mm, while it will weigh 150 grams.
Now, in addition to TENAA’s listing, Gionee has also released an official teaser for this smartphone, and has, at the same time, confirmed that the phone will arrive on June 13th. If you take a look at the gallery down below, you’ll be able to see the Gionee S6 Pro in the flesh. As you can see, this device sports a physical home key instead of a capacitive button, and a fingerprint scanner will be built into that button. The Type-C USB port is also expected to be available on the bottom of the device, and you will, of course, get 4G LTE connectivity with this phone as well. That is more or less it, stay tuned for more details.
