Gionee S6 Pro specifications

The smartphone flaunts a 5.5-inch full HD IPS display with 2.5D curved glass and Corning Gorilla Glass protection. At the heart of the S6 Pro runs MediaTek’s 64-bit Helio P10 octa-core processor paired with 4GB of RAM. The smartphone also features 64GB of internal storage, along with a microSD card slot with support up to 128GB.

In the photography department, the Gionee S6 Pro sports a 13-megapixel rear camera (Sony IMX258 sensor) of aperture f/2.0, 5P lens with LED flash and an 8-megapixel front-facing camera of aperture f/2.2.

The Le Max2 also has a variant with 6GB of RAM and 64GB storage, priced at Rs 29,999. All smartphones also feature better resolution cameras compared to the S6 Pro.
