Gionee will launch the M6S Plus with 6020mAh battery on April 24

Chinese phone maker Gionee is set to launch the M6S Plus at an event that will take place on April 24. The official invites for the event show a fingerprint scan on the front side, implying that the device will have the same security encryption chip found in its predecessors.

Although it has not yet been a year since Gionee announced the M6 in July last year, the tech firm is already ready to unveil the Gionee M6S Plus this month. In fact, Gionee has already sent invites for the event that will take place on April 24. The official invites distributed by Gionee did not reveal any specific detail regarding the upcoming device. However, we can notice the fingerprint scan shown on the front side which suggests that the handset will still have the security encryption chip that debuted on its predecessors, the Gionee M6 and M6 Plus. Apparently, we can also expect to see some new features related to the fingerprint scanner.

To recall, the Gionee M6S Plus was spotted on the Chinese certification website TENAA last month. Although the event invite mentioned earlier did not disclose additional information regarding the device, we can still refer to the TENAA listing for us to know what to expect. As per the listing, the Gionee M6S Plus will sport a 6-inch AMOLED display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. It is tipped to pack 6GB of RAM and 64GB internal memory storage which can be expanded up to 128GB via microSD card. Under the hood, the listing only revealed that it will have an octa-core processor clocked at 2GHz. In line with that, some point out that Gionee will upgrade the Helio P10 chipset that powers the M6.

Camera-wise, the Gionee M6S Plus smartphone features a 12-megapixel rear snapper with dual tone LED flash and a front-facing camera of 8 megapixels. The phone is touted to run an Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow OS with Gionee's UI on top. It is said to be fueled by a massive 6,020mAh battery that can get you through the day on a single charge.
