MWC 2016 | General Mobile unveils GM 5 Plus smartphone
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.
