Gionee S6s is a smartphone which is currently out in the market now propelled along advertisements as a selfie-centric device. So essentially Gionee S series is a series which resembles the Front Facing Smartphone area. But now with S6 Pro, they've removed the physical flash and implemented the flash screen technology which most of the Smartphone manufacturers are currently experimenting. So mostly when you click a photo with your front camera during low light, the entire screen would flash up and mimic the external flash technique so that the front sensor takes in more light & the image which gets captured comes out sharper. On top of that, the front camera has an F2.2 aperture which naturally fills more light into the sensor due to that large aperture. The Rear Camera has a 13MP Sony IMX258 Sensor with F2.0 aperture, So expect some vast improvements to your smartphone photography, Though I've not tested it out yet. Also judging from the looks, the 2.5 D curved display, and the unibody aluminum design seems like a good testament. Whereas it also has a VoLTE support, So Yes Reliance JIO works. On top of that, Gionee has partnered with Saavn to provide three months of Saavn Pro subscription to all the S6 Pro customers.
