Gionee is not a new name to those familiar with android. They have actually got a large following in China and India and are the OEM for American phone company, BLU. The S6 Pro is their upcoming device.
Towards the end of last year, Gionee released the all-metal Gionee S6 which by its specs can be classified as a mid-range device. With the new announcement, Gionee thinks it’s time the phone got an upgrade.
The S6 Pro will be wearing Gionee’s new logo and based on information on TENAA, while it will be getting an FHD AMOLED screen compared to the original S6 which has a 720p screen, it will retain the same 5.5″ screen size. RAM has been bumped up to 4GB and ROM will come in 32GB or 64GB variants. Gionee hasn’t settled on what SoC will be used but we might see the phone sporting a Snapdragon 652 or a Mediatek Helio P10. There is going to be a 13MP camera on the back which is slightly protruding and an 8MP front facing camera for those wonderful selfies.
The phone is fuelled by a 3130mAh battery and will come with Android Marshmallow with Gionee’s Amigo OS overlay. The S6 Pro will have 4G LTE and is expected to feature a USB Type-C port. Gionee has released teasers for the phone which confirms that the S6 Pro will launch on the 13th of June.
From the pictures, we can see that Gionee has ditched the capacitive buttons on the original S6 in favor of a physical home key which will also house a fingerprint scanner. Pricing still remains unknown.
