  • Gionee's new S6s will be a selfie-focused smartphone
  • It will sport front-facing flash
  • The smartphone features a fingerprint scanner at the back

Chinese company Gionee last week started sending press invites for an event on August 22 in India where it was expected to reveal a new selfie-focused smartphone. Now, the company in a tweet has pretty much confirmed that the Gionee S6s will be revealed at the event.

The company's global Twitter handle in a tweet said, "The incoming one...The New One, which is redefining "premium selfie" means to you." The tweet was accompanied by hashtags Gionee S6s alongside selfie and flash. The company seems gearing to target the selfie obsessed audience with its new S6s smartphone in India. Unfortunately, there is no word on the innards of the handset so far.

Gionee also shared an image of the S6s smartphone on Twitter which gave the world first glimpse of the handset ahead of the official reveal. It is likely to sport an all metal build while pack fingerprint scanner at the back. The front camera features a flash, carrying on the selfie-focused theme.

We can expect the company to release more teasers around the handset ahead of the August 22 launch.

Gionee last month launched the M6 and M6 Plus smartphones at an event in Beijing. The biggest highlight of the smartphones was they came with an inbuilt data encryption chip that the company claimed would ensure extra security of user's communication and content.

The Gionee M6 was priced at CNY 2,699 (roughly Rs. 27,200) for its 64GB storage variant, and CNY 2,899 (roughly Rs. 29,200) for the 128GB storage variant. The Gionee M6 Plus 64GB variant was priced at CNY 2,999 (roughly Rs. 30,200), and the 128GB variant was priced at CNY 3,199 (roughly Rs. 32,200).
