Most Android One smartphones are low-cost affairs, designed to offer budget-conscious customers in emerging markets access to the latest Android software features with updates delivered directly from Google.

But some budget devices are better than others, and the new General Mobile GM6 maybe be the best Android One smartphone to date.

The phone features a 5 inch, 1280 x 720 pixel LCD display, a MediaTek MT6737T quad-core processor, 3GB of RAM, and 32GB of storage.

It ships with Android Nougat softare, features a 13MP rear camera, and the General Mobile GM6 is the first Android One phone I’m aware of to feature a fingerprint sensor built. It’s built into the home button.

The GM6 also has a 3,000 mAh removable battery and a “selfie flash” option that lets you light up pictures snapped with the 8MP camera on the front of the phone.

Google says the GM6 will be available soon in Turkey.

  1. General Mobile DSTL1 was my first Android phone. It was one of the first Android phones on the market. Unfortunately the HW was crappy and the phone died after 1 year.

  2. So Android One is not so much just for the developing world anymore. (To be fair, there have been signs that Google was changing tack with regards to where they will be released.)

  3. Am I the only one who read that headline wrong and thought, “Generall Motors is making smart phones!?”

    Seriously though, would love to see this in the States.
