Gionee's arrived on the selfie-phone scene with its first front-flash smartphone, the S6s, and it's got what it takes to make your mug screenshot-worthy.
The 8MP front camera has a 1.4μm sensor that can capture sufficient light even in low-light conditions, making you look much brighter, no matter where or what time of the day the narcissism hits. The rear camera is no back-bencher either - it's a 13MP with a Sony IMX258 sensor. And the screen's a solid 2.5D water-drop Corning Gorilla Glass with Native Damage Resistance with a 5.5in IPS FHD display.
The phone's on track with Android Marshmallow 6.0 and Amigo 3.2 OS, a 3150mAh battery, a fingerprint scanner, 3GB RAM, 32GB ROM and expandable memory up to 128GB - all the better to store those selfies on, my dear. The S6s supports both 4G and VoLTE, allowing you to get hold of that Jio plan right away.
That's not all though - no selfie phone worth its salt can be complete without features that work better than beauty saloons, can it? The S6s comes equipped with Image +, a "Face beauty, Realtime filter, beauty editor", a Video Editor with themed and professional edit options, Video beautification, Time lapse, Text Reorganisation as well as macro quality pictures that allow for better clarity. Also on board are handy features such as Gallery Hiding management and Gallery Trash - the latter helps you restore deleted photos within 7 days. Gionee's really thought of everything on this one.
And at a price tag of ₹17,999, it's clearly grabbed the OPPOrtunity to go one up on its nearest competitor with that flash on the front. (In case you missed our brilliant wordplay, we're talking about the similarly priced Oppo F1s, which has twice the MP on the front cam, but alas, no flash.) The Gionee S6s is available in Latte Gold and Mocha Gold (we approve of the names) on their website.
