Chinese smartphone manufacturer Gionee had unveiled the M6 and the M6 Plus duo last year. The company now seems to be working on yet another variant in this series, as evidenced by the Gionee M6S Plus clearing the TENAA (Chinese telecommunications regulatory authority) certification. The device sports a design similar to that of the M6 with a metal unibody design and front-facing fingerprint sensor embedded in the home button.
The smartphone measures in at 163mm × 80.8mm × 8.2mm and weighs around 212 grammes. The Gionee M6S Plus is expected to come with a 6-inch AMOLED display sporting a resolution of 1920 × 1080p. Under the hood, the smartphone will pack in an octa-core 2GHz processor backed by 6GB of RAM. Internal storage will be pegged at 64GB, and the phone will come pre-installed with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow and Amigo OS on top.
The device will have a 12-megapixel rear-facing and 5-megapixel front-facing camera. Connectivity will include 4G VoLTE support, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and a 3.5mm audio jack. The smartphone’s USP is expected to be its massive 6020mAh battery.
It must be noted that, as of this writing, Gionee hasn’t scheduled any event in China where the phone could potentially be announced, but the device clearing the TENAA certification indeed does guarantee some announcement from the company to that effect in the near future.
