Gionee has finally launched its much-awaited “S6” smartphone in India that features an all-metal unibody construction. The company hasn’t made any official announcement about the launch yet but has been teasing S6 launch since a while in India. We just noticed that “Gionee S6” is now available to buy online on Flipkart at a price of 19,999 INR and it appears Gionee will be selling it exclusively on Flipkart. The S6 sports a premium design, shiny edges that give it an elegant look and it boasts some quality specs that you can find below. The phone comes USB Type-C port and Hybrid SIM tray that accepts Micro-SIM and Nano-SIM card. You get 32GB of storage that can be further expanded up to 128 GB via microSD card but that uses the secondary SIM slot.
The phone is available on Flipkart in 3 premium colours – Gold, Silver and Rose Gold.

The S6 specs are very much similar to the Gionee S Plus that was launched a while back. Apparently, the major differences between the two are that S6 comes with a premium full-metal design, slim and lightweight form factor, Hybrid SIM tray and 32GB ROM. We look forward to getting our hands on the S6 and come up with a detailed review soon. Stay tuned!
