Gionee is back with a new smartphone for Indian consumers today, this time aimed at the selfie enthusiast. The new Gionee S6s comes with an 8 megapixel front facing camera for more detailed selfies, and also features some other improvements and specifications over the company’s slightly older S6 handset.

Delving into the specifications, the 5.5-inch LCD display has seen is resolution bumped up to a full 1080p panel. The S6s is powered by a 1.3GHz MediaTek MT6753 processor, which is built from eight Cortex-A53 CPU cores, and comes with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. The phone runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box and comes with a decently sized 3,150mAh battery.

The cameras are the smartphones major selling points, and there is some pretty good hardware and software to be found here. The 8 megapixel front facing camera features a f/2.2 aperture and is accompanied by an LED flash. The rear camera is a 13-megapixel Sony IMX 258 sensor with f/2.0 aperture. Gionee has also bundled in a selection of camera software features, including panorama HDR, Face Beauty, and an Ultra Pixel mode that stitches multiple images together into a detailed 120 megapixel picture.

Just like the company’s S6, the Gionee S6s comes with a metal uni-body, 2.5D glass, and a fingerprint scanner on the back. There’s also a hybrid SIM/microSD card setup that allows users to opt for a dual-SIM configuration if they so desire.

The Gionee S6s is priced at Rs 17,999 ($268) and is now available to purchase from Amazon India or through the company’s physical retail partners. This positions the phone right up against the likes of the new selfie focused OPPO F1, Xiaomi’s popular Redmi Note 3, and the impressive Moto G4 Plus.
