The newly launched Gionee G6 looks pretty much like the Huawei Mate 20 Pro on the back, with a rectangular camera module which apparently encases two cameras and two LED flashes. So, not quite like the real Mate 20 Pro that actually packed three rear cameras. It is also known as Gionee Steel 5.
The sensors on board are also quite sub-par at a resolution of 12MP for the primary and just 2MP for the secondary. While on the Huawei Mate 20 Pro we had a 40MP primary, along with an 8MP secondary telephoto lens and a third 20MP ultra wide angle camera.
Moving onto the front of the device, the Gionee G6 sports an averagely sized 6.2-inch display with a waterdrop notch at the top. The display has 720 × 1520 resolution, meanwhile the camera in the notch has 13MP res. But the most interesting part about the display is that Gionee decided to promote it with a wallpaper taken from the Huawei Mate 30 series. So the handset looks like a Mate 20 Pro on the back and a Mate 30 at the front.
Other specs on Gionee’s phone include an unnamed octa-core processor from MediaTek; paired with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. The smartphone is then powered by a large 5000mAh capacity battery, sports an USB Type-C port and runs Android 9 out of the box.
