The Chinese smartphone maker is expected to launch an S-series smartphone. In India, manufacturers such as Oppo and Coolpad have recently launched selfie-centric smartphones in India, and Gionee seems to be going on the same pathway.

At an event in Beijing last month, Gionee unveiled two new smartphones – the Gionee M6 and M6 Plus. Both the devices come with data encryption chips and large batteries. But the data encryption feature was limited to the Chinese variant and not on the global model. It remains to be seen if Gionee brings the data encryption packed variant to India. The Gionee M6 was launched in 64GB and 128GB storage variants for 2699 yuan (approx. Rs. 27,220/US$ 404) and 2899 yuan (approx. Rs. 29225/US$ 434). Similarly, the M6 Plus also debuted in 64GB and 128GB storage models, priced at 2999 yuan (approx. Rs. 30,230/US$ 449) and 3199 yuan (approx. Rs. 32,249/US$ 479). The M6 will be available in Champagne Gold and Latte Gold colour options while the M6 Plus will be up for sale in just Champagne Gold colour.
