Chinese smartphone brand Gionee has added a new mid-range smartphone in its S lineup in Nepal. Known as the Gionee S6, the phone is 6.9mm thick at its thickest point and just 4mm at its thinnest point. If you only take the thinnest point in an account, it is indeed the world’s thinnest smartphone to date. But, we believe that’s delusional. The phone is priced at Rs. 29,999 and is available from Gionee outlets all across the nation.
We have seen all the past Gionee S lineup with slim profiles, but with average specs sheet, and the new Gionee S6 follows the same trend. It has a 5.5 inch 720P AMOLED display that comes with gorilla glass 3 protection. The phone is powered by a 1.3Ghz octa-core Mediatek MT6753 64bit processor coupled with Mali T720MP3 GPU. In terms of memory, the Gionee S6 boasts 3GB of RAM and 32GB of inbuilt storage with a microSD card support for expansion upto 128GB.
As far as the camera is concerned, the Gionee S6 has 13MP rear camera with PDAF, LED flash, 1080P video recording. It also has a 5MP front-facing camera. In terms of connectivity, it sports a hybrid dual SIM slot with 4G LTE bands, WiFi b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, USB type C port, and GPS. Powering is a 3150mAh battery which the company says will deliver upto 18.8 hours of talk time and upto 342 hours of standby time. It sports a premium metal body and is just 6.99mm thick weighing around 147 grams.
Considering the uber competition of midrange smartphones, there is nothing spectacular about the phone, particularly when the phone carries a price tag of Rs. 29,999. For such pricing, you will get better-specced phones like Xiaomi Redmi Note 3, Lenovo K4 Note, Galaxy J7, and Elephone M2.
