Gionee S6, a metallic handset which supports VoLTE communication is now official in India. The handset which was first introduced in home country China is already selling for 19,999 INR.
“Gionee S6 is a perfect amalgamation of looks and specs and has been crafted for our judicious consumers. The device is one of the first from Gionee to come in with VoLTE and has an 89% metal body encompassing a strong core. The launch of the Gionee S6 under the S series is another addition to our impressive product portfolio and we are happy to give the market a smartphone which is high on performance and style at a rational price point.” said Mr. Timir Baran Acharyya, General Manager, Gionee India.
Talking of features and specifications, the Gionee S6 comes with a 5.5-inch HD Super AMOLED Display protected by Gorilla Glass 3 layer on top. The handset is powered by 1.3GHz Octa-Core Mediatek MT6753 Processor, paired with 3GB RAM and 32GB Internal memory. You can also add 128GB external microSD storage.
Software is Android 5.1 Lollipop based Amigo UI 3.1. Other notable features include 13 megapixel rear camera with LED flash, 5MP front-facing snapper, Hybrid dual SIM slot, 4G LTE ( TDD LTE Band 40, FDD LTE Band 3), USB Type C port, 3150mAh battery, and VoLTE.
VoLTE or Voice over LTE allows you to place cellular calls on 4G LTE data pipes (voice communication isn’t billed against data plan) for better call quality. VoLTE also allows you to use data and make calls simultaneously. For now you won’t be able to benefit from VoLTE on S6 due to lack of carrier support, but that shall be a valid option after Reliance Jio rolls out 4G LTE services for the masses.
