Gionee has re-launched its last version M6 Plus phone in a new avatar M6S Plus with some changes but many of the specs and features have been retained from the predecessor.
Same processor, higher RAM
The Gionee M6S Plus is being released with 6GB RAM while the M6 Plus had a RAM of 4GB. The M6S comes with an internal storage of 64GB. There is also a 256GB variant available. There is a microSD slot that can add another 256GB. But do you really need that much storage on your mobile phone?
There is no change in the processor, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 653 offering a speed of 1.95GHz. But the real estate on the display screen is a substantial 6inches. The display is full HD AMOLED screen with a 2.5D curved glass and offers a screen resolution of 1920x1080. The phone enables multi-touch with a fingerprint sensor in the rear. The battery is also pretty huge: 6020mAh! A fast charging facility through Quick Charge 3 supports this powerful battery.
Gionee has also not altered the specifications of the camera from M6 Plus to M6S Plus. The rear camera is 12MP with LED flash and the front camera is an 8MP one.
Like most Chinese phones, Gionee also adds its own UI Amigo 3.5 over the Android 6 version Marshmallow. The phone accommodates two SIM cards and is 4G-enabled.
One significant aspect of the phone is that it has been fitted with a special encrypted chip that takes care of the security of the data, calls and SMSs.
The Gionee M6S Plus is likely to go on sale in China from May 2 and Indian customers should not have to wait long to get hold of one.
The indicative prices for the 64GB and 256GB variants are Rs.35, 000 and Rs.43, 000 respectively.
