Chinese brand Gionee has been largely absent from the smartphone market. The last phone launched by the brand in India was the Gionee F9 Plus, back in September 2019. Gionee had also launched a smartwatch in the country, but has not been active in the country since. Now, the company is back with a new affordable smartphone, launched in its home country. The latest device is dubbed as Gionee K6 and it is currently limited to China.
The smartphone packs decent features like a triple rear camera, Helio P60 SoC and a 4,350mAh battery with 10W charging. However, the Gionee K6 ships with the dated Android 7.1 Nougat, which is surprising. Let’s find out what the smartphone offers out of the box.
