Smartphone maker General Mobile has unveiled a new phone with a 5 inch 720p display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, and dual SIM support.

It’s called the General Mobile GM 5 and it’s the first Android One smartphone that will ship with Android 7.0 Nougat software.

Also, apparently Android One is still a thing.


The Android One program was set up by Google a few years ago as a way for smartphone makers to partner with the company on low-cost smartphones that have near stock Android software and receive updates directly from Google.

Most Android One phones are sold in developing markets, but General Mobile typically sells its phones in a number of European countries as well as parts of Asia, Africa, and the Middle East.

The GM 5 features Qualcomm’s 1.2 GHz quad-core, 64-bit processor, a 13MP rear camera, a 5MP front camera, 802.11b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, FM radio, and support for 4G LTE… but not for the bands used in the United States.

It has a 2,500 mAh battery and a microSD card slot for up to 64GB of removable storage.
