Selfie smartphones are making a comeback in the Indian market. Just recently OPPO launched its OPPO F1s with 16-megapixel OIS camera. And now Gionee has launched the Gionee S6s, which is also aimed at selfie enthusiasts. The smartphone is priced at Rs 17,999. The Gionee S6s comes with an 8-megapixel front-facing camera, as well as a 13-megapixel rear camera with auto-focus and Ultra Pixel support. The smartphone will be available online via Amazon India, as well as offline via the company’s retail partners.

As the name suggests, the new Gionee S6s is a newer variant of the S6, which was launched in India earlier this year with a price tag of Rs 19,999. Like the S6, the new S6s too comes with metal unibody design, but with the addition of a 2.5D glass on the front. It will be available in two colors — Latte Gold and Mocha Gold. The smartphone features a fingerprint scanner on the back, which Gionee says can support up to five different fingerprints. Other important features include a hybrid setup that either lets users opt for two SIM cards or one SIM card and one microSD card. There’s also support for VoLTE that makes the smartphone future-proof. Also Read - Huawei Band 6 launched to take on Mi Band 5, brings SpO2 monitor at budget

Gionee S6s specifications

The Gionee S6s comes with a 5.5-inch IPS In-Cell display with full HD (1920×1080 pixels) resolution.

The smartphone comes with 32GB of internal storage, which can be expanded using a microSD card.

The Gionee S6s’ USP is the 8-megapixel selfie camera with f/2.2 aperture and 5P Lens. The selfie camera is accompanied with a LED flash and also screen flash, which essentially aid in clicking selfies in low light conditions. At the back is a 13-megapixel auto-focus camera with f/2.0 aperture and Sony IMX 258 sensor. The camera also gets a slew of modes like Panorama, HDR, Professional, Magic Focus, Face Beauty, Pic Note and Ultra Pixel, which stitches multiple images together to deliver a 120-megapixel resolution image. The rear camera is capable of shooting full HD (1080p) videos.

Connectivity options include dual-SIM, 4G with VoLTE support, Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi and OTG support. The smartphone is powered by a 3,150mAh battery. It runs Amigo 3.0 based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow. Right now there’s no word on when or whether the smartphone will be upgraded to Android 7 Nougat.

At Rs 17,999, the smartphone will compete against OPPO’s F1s selfie smartphone. OPPO’s smartphone is priced at Rs 17,990, and comes with a 16-megapixel front-facing camera featuring f/2.0 aperture and 1/3.1-inch sensor. It also has a MediaTek octa-core processor along with 3GB of RAM. The OPPO smartphone also comes with the fingerprint scanner.
