The S6s will feature 'a front-facing LED flash'.
Chinese tech-virtuoso, Gionee, will be releasing a selfie specialised S6s smartphone in India.
Local media have report they have received invitation to an event in New Delhi on August 22, 2016.
Many speculate this will be when Gionee officially unveils the ‘selfie smartphone’.
Android Authority confirms that the S6s will feature ‘a front-facing LED flash’.
It also anticipates similar specifications with the S6 Pro, which boasts ‘a mid-range MediaTek Helio P10 chipset, 4 GB of RAM, and 64 GB of expandable storage’.
Gionee reveals it will have a ‘2.5D water drop HD IPS Display’ that offers a wide angle view of 178°.
So how much can consumers expect to pay for this smartphone?
OPPO F1s, described as the ideal phone for ‘selfie experts’, launches in early August 2016 and sells for Rs 17,990 (£204).
It seems like Gionee S6s will also be at similar prices to edge out their fellow Chinese phone maker.
Selfie is the new ‘cool’ not only in our daily lives, but also in Bollywood.
Whether it’s Akshay Kumar’s pout in Dishoom or the Ae Dil Hai Mushkil cast posing, we just can’t avoid them!
But that’s not all!
Hindustan Times reports in June 2016 that five girls in Hyderabad want to create a selfie app, inspired by their favourite actress, Kareena Kapoor Khan.
As a source reveals: “These girls build mobile applications. They are designing a selfie-clicking app, which will be based on [Kareena].”
Allegedly, the application will be called ‘Pout Like Bebo’, where users can learn how to do so whilst taking a selfie.
Founded in September 2002 by Liu Rong, Gionee mainly focuses on ‘R&D, production and sale of cellular mobile devices’.
It has been gaining more and more popularity in India with their stylish budget phones.
Thus, with a new selfie-focused smartphone on the horizon, Gionee is set to make even bigger waves in the lucrative market.
