Google introduced the Android One initiative back in 2014 as a set of guidelines with the goal to help customers in developing markets gain access to affordable Android-powered handsets. Until now, this program delivered a few handsets here and there, but most of them are cheap low-end devices. Now, the most powerful Android One device so far, dubbed GM 5 Plus, is ready to hit the Turkish market.

General Mobile announced the GM 5 Plus earlier this week in Barcelona. Its highlights include the following:

  • Processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 SoC
  • Memory/Storage: 3 GB RAM; 32 GB internal storage and microSD support up to 128 GB
  • Display: 5.5-inch full HD with 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass 4 protection and 79 percent screen-to-body ratio
  • Cameras: 13 MP autofocus with flash in the front, 13 MP autofocus with dual flash on the back
  • Connectivity: 4G LTE-A Cat.7, WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, USB Type-C
  • Operating system: Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow
  • Battery: 3100 mAh with Quick Charge 3.0 support

While detailed info on pricing is not available yet, the GM 5 Plus is expected to cost below $300 USD. It will launch in Turkey by the end of March and then will reach another 15 markets. Unfortunately, the US is not one of them.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
