Phone companies around the globe have started introducing high-end smartphones with decent front-facing cameras which enhance the art of ‘selfies’ by increasing the megapixel count as well as other requisites which previously used to exist for rear cameras in the copybook smartphones. 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.
