The smartphone houses 32GB of inbuilt storage, of which users will get 23GB. The inbuilt storage can be expanded via microSD card (up to 128GB).


The metal smartphone is backed by a 3150mAh battery, which is rated to deliver up to 18 hours of talk-time (on and 384 hours of standby time on 3G connectivity. The S6's connectivity options include Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Wi-Fi Hotspot, GPS, 4G LTE (including Band 40 and VoLTE), USB OTG and USB Type-C (2.0) connectivity.

The smartphone is available in Gold, Rose Gold, and Silver colour variants.

Looking at the specifications, the handset might prove to be a worthy rival of the Acer Liquid Z630s. However, the Acer Liquid Z630s features a larger battery and 8-megapixel front and rear-facing cameras.
