Following the GM 5 Plus, which was one of the most powerful Android One devices at launch, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 410-powered GM 5 is the first Android One handset to ship loaded with Nougat.

General Mobile might not be a big name worldwide, but earlier this year they launched the most powerful Android One handset not long ago. Dubbed GM 5 Plus, that Qualcomm Snapdragon 617-powered handset now has just received a successor that hits the market as the first Android One device to come loaded with Android Nougat.

General Mobile GM 5 has the following specs and features:

  • Processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 SoC
  • Memory/Storage: 2 GB RAM; 16 GB internal storage and microSD support
  • Display: 5-inch IPS 720p with Corning Gorilla Glass 4 protection and 294 ppi
  • Cameras: 5 MP front, 13 MP autofocus with dual LED flash on the back
  • Connectivity: 4G LTE, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0 with A2DP, GPS with A-GPS
  • Operating system: Android 7.0 Nougat
  • Battery: 2,500 mAh
  • Colors: gold, space gray, black

While the price is still unknown, Phone Arena says the handset will reach no less than 20 markets, including Belgium, Croatia, Greece, Iraq, Luxembourg, Netherlands, and Turkey. Unfortunately, the UK or the US are not on the list, but maybe they could get the GM 5 at a later time. After all, this handset looks like an interesting low-cost Nougat smartphone for those on a tight budget.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
