Android One’s next phone is the General Mobile GM6 for Turkey

Google isn’t worried about Android One, it’s budget-focused strategy for Android devices throughout the world. We know this because, in addition to readying low-end hardware for the U.S., new Android One phones continue appearing overseas. General Mobile debuted a new phone with modest specifications and Android 7.0 Nougat, the latest version of the mobile platform.

The GM6, which will be released exclusively in Turkey, actually seems quite better than most of the Android One devices released before.

General Mobile’s GM6 packs a 5-inch 720p LCD display, MediaTek’s MT6737T, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, a 13MP rear camera with two-tone LED flash, an 8MP front-facing camera with LED flash, a 3000mAh battery, and Nougat. If you do buy the GM6, you’ll get software updates directly from Google as that’s one of Android One’s stipulations.

Really the only concern appears to be the processor as it’s not one of MediaTek’s high-end or mid-range units. This, however, is because General Mobile needs to keep the phone’s price down.

Neither Google nor General Mobile provided a price or a release date for the GM6 in Turkey. We do expect the phone to expand beyond the country at some point, though.

    Manufacturers spend a lot of money and resources attempting to build the next big thing. And all I want it a phone that follows the KISS principle (Keep It Simple & Stupid). This phone got an amazing design.
