The specs of Gionee S6s, which i hinted about last week is here in full details. The S6s is Selfie centric device according to Gionee this is why it bears the nickname "Selfie With Flash". The phone is a mid-range android phone featuring a 13 megapixel main camera and an 8 megapixel front-facing camera with flash light, just like the Gionee F103 Pro.

In this post, am going to "review" the specs and features of this latest Gionee S6s including some of its images and launch price. Follow me along.


The S6s comes with Android 6 Marshmallow out of the box together with Amigo OS 3.2 which is beautiful. Users don't need to stress up or crack brain on how to upgrade to Marshmallow via SP flashtool or the data used for downloading updates.

As expected, it carries support for 4G lite and VoLTE technology which makes it perfect to work with Ntel 4G services, MTN 4G, Smile 4G etc. Apart from the 4G reception ability, it also supports the older networks like 2g, 3g, H and H+

Gionee S6s is beautifully designed with 5.5 inches screen protected with corning Gorilla Glass. The screen uses 1080 x 1920 pixels and 2.5D Curved Edge Display at a dimension of 154.50 x 75.60 x 8.15 mm. Another interesting fact is designed with full metal body and comes with Latte Gold and Mocha Gold colors respectively.

The device is powered by Octa-Core CPU which clocks at 1.3GHz while maintaining the usual MediaTek processor commonly associated with Gionee Smartphones. Apart from the general processor, it uses a separate graphics card codenamed Mali T720
In terms of memory and storage, the phone is in line with the latest trend in the business as it packs 3GB RAM and 32 GB of internal storage space which can be expanded up to 128 GB with an external SD card.

The highlight of this phone is the front camera even when the teaser of the phone surfaced online, it was only known as selfie with flash until the real name came out. So talking about the camera, it features 13 Megapixel shooter at the back with autofocus and LED flash with video recording while at the front, it has 8 megapixel Lens with flash.

The S6s comes with a removable 3,150 mAh Li-Polymer battery which should offer about 17 hours of usage (browsing, playing music and making calls)
