Gionee M6S Plus Expected April 24, With 6GB RAM & Helio P20


Gionee's follow-up to last year's M6 Plus, the M6S Plus, is ready for the Chinese market and packs in an astonishing 6 GB of RAM. Having passed through the countries TENNA certification process, the smartphone is expected to be revealed on April 24. Other specs of the M6S Plus are also nothing to laugh at either. According to the certification, it will sport a 2.5D curved glass, 6-inch Full HD AMOLED screen. The certification also shows the handset's power source to be a whopping 6,020 mAh battery with fast charging enabled. Meanwhile, performance is provided by MediaTek's Helio P20 SoC, with an octa-core configuration clocked at 2GHz. According to the source, a teaser has provided details about security on the device. It is said to have an encrypted chip that ensures secure data, as well as calls and texts. A fingerprint sensor is also expected, though not confirmed, as an added measure of security on top of the now confirmed encrypted chip.

In addition to those TENNA-confirmed features, the M6S Plus is expected to come in both 64 GB and 128 GB storage configurations – with storage expandable via SD by up to 128 GB. It is also rumored to feature dual SIM support and to be 4G VoLTE capable, as well as having all of the Wi-Fi features that can be expected from such a device. As to the cameras, a 12-megapixel rear shooter with dual-tone flash and an 8-megapixel selfie camera are expected. Unfortunately, all of that is currently rumored to be topped by Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) rather than the newest Android OS version, Android 7.0 (Nougat). Considering some of the problems many manufacturers have been having with Nougat, that may not be such a bad thing. The device itself is expected to be available in two color variants, including white and gold.

Some of the information outlined here is still, of course, only what is expected and not necessarily true to the final product. It is also likely the device will arrive with features that haven't been considered. However, the April 24 announcement date is coming up pretty fast – it's only 6 days away as of this writing – so all of the rumors and speculation surrounding Gionee's latest device should soon either be confirmed or disproved.
