Google Pixel Phones adoption beating Nexus 6P in first week
We have not heard much about the Google’s Android One program for about couple of months now. The Sharp 507SH was the last device that we came across which landed in Japan but with Android Marshmallow out of the box. Since then Nougat has been launched. Now General Mobile has announced the first Android One device with the latest version of Google’s mobile OS. It is the General Mobile GM 5.
The GM 5 basically is designed for international markets such as Albania, Afghanistan, Belgium, Bosnia, Croatia, Georgia, Iraq, Kenya, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Pakistan, Turkey, and Uzbekistan. It runs stock Android with updates direct from Google just with other Android One devices. The device features a 5-inch 720p display with Gorilla Glass 4, quad-core Snapdragon 410 processor, a 13MP rear camera 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage with a microSD card slot and weighs in at 160g.
The General Mobile GM 5 has a 2,500 mAh battery. Black, Space Grey and Gold are some of the colors options that will be available. We have no clue about the pricing yet but we will surely get to know more as the phone will be launched this month.
It is worth observing that this is not directly related to the GM 5 Plus which was launched earlier in 2016. Though that device also being in the Android One program, it is not the same since it brings higher-end specs and a price tag that was apparently much higher.
