General Mobile, a Turkish manufacturer operating in approximately 20 countries, has announced a new Android One smartphone to the list of known devices. The famous program created by Google began about two years ago with the aim of spreading its mobile platform in emerging markets at an affordable price. The new General Mobile GM6, successor to the previous GM5 Plus, introduces exciting new features for this category of cheap devices, including a fingerprint reader and a front LED flash.
General Mobile GM6, new Android One smartphone
The General Mobile GM6 has a 5-inch display with HD resolution (1,280 x 720 pixels), protected by Gorilla Glass 4. The hardware includes a MediaTek MT6737T quad-core processor at 1.5 GHz, running with support of 3 GB RAM and 32 GB of internal memory, expandable with microSD card up to 128 GB. To this, we added a 13 megapixel rear sensor and a front camera whose resolution reaches up to 8 megapixels with LED flash. In summary, as you can see, it is a very interesting cell phone, with specifications comparable to those of a mid-range device in the market (and in many cases in the upper range).
The connectivity provided includes Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.2, GPS and LTE network support. For the first time, an Android One device integrates a fingerprint reader (below the Start button), in addition to conventional sensors (accelerometer, proximity, compass, ambient light and gyroscope). The battery has a capacity of 3,000 mAh. The size and weight are 144 x 71.3 x 8.6 mm and 150 grams, respectively.
The other news is the inclusion of the Android 7.0 Nougat stock version (ie: Android in its purest version). This fact will help to receive security updates distributed by Google much faster than in other cases. Among the preinstalled applications, Google Duo already appears. Users can also use the Google Assistant. This cell phone will go on sale in three different colors: Gold, Rose Gold and Space Gray. The price, however, is still unknown to the public.
