In November last year, Gionee unveiled the S6 and soon there will be a pro version. The Gionee S6 Pro is coming on June 13 in China and it really cranks up the specs.
The metal unibody will now be filled with the popular Snapdragon 652 chipset with 4GB of RAM. The 5.5″ display will have 1080p resolution, up from 720p. The Android version was bumped to 6.0 Marshmallow too and a 64GB storage option has been added (there’s a microSD slot if you need more).
All this made the Gionee S6 Pro a bit thicker – from 6.9mm of the regular S6 to 7.6mm. It weighs the same, though, and the battery capacity is basically unchanged – 3,130mAh. A USB Type-C port will be used for charging and wired data connectivity.
The phone brings a fingerprint reader, opting for the Home key position instead of the back. There is also a 13MP main camera (1080p video) and an 8MP selfie camera.
Again, the unveiling is a week from now (next Monday). The press invite talks about machining the metal with diamond-tipped tools, but we’re not 100% sure what the 7 means.
