After being dormant in the smartphone industry for some time, Gionee launched the Steel 5 smartphone earlier this year. Following that, now the company has now announced a new budget smartphone in China — Gionee K6.
The Gionee K6 flaunts a 6.2-inch HD+ IPS display with waterdrop notch that houses the 13MP front camera. It sports a gradient back and is powered by the Octa-Core MediaTek Helio P60 processor paired with up to 8GB of RAM and up to 256GB of internal storage. It sports a rear-mounted physical fingerprint scanner as well, but what’s strange is, it runs on a dated Android 7.1 (Nougat) OS.
Coming to the optics, it sports triple rear cameras and one of them is a 16MP f/2.0 lens. There is no information on the other two lenses. Lastly, it packs a 4350mAh battery with support for 10W charging.
