Chinese company Gionee released their new flagship M6 and M6 Plus smartphones at a launch event in Beijing recently. The company is touting the massive battery backup and in-built data encryption as the USP of the devices. However, the security chip is exclusive to China only shipping to rest of the world with a fingerprint scanner instead.
The curved devices have been built using aerospace-class unibody aluminium with a 2.5D glass protecting the display on the front. Interestingly, the M6 and M6 Plus can also be used as a power bank. In order to optimize charging, 9V2A dual charge chips allow for faster and cooler charging in comparison to competition in the market according to Gionee. Coming to the snappers, the rear camera houses a Sony IMX258 module with F2.0 aperture featuring PDAF and LED flash while the front camera has a F2.2 aperture.
The M6 Plus shares most of the same specs as the M6 with the addition of higher clocked processor, larger 6″ display and 6,020mAh. While both smartphones have been launched in China, no release date has been announced for India yet.
