General Mobile announced an all new phone at MWC 2016 that will be a part of Google’s Android One program. Even though many analysts felt that it was the end of the road for Android One, the new announcement has brought back some excitement. The first phones part of this was launched in India and they got a lukewarm response. This might’ve been due to the fact that the phones were low-end budget phones. The GM 5 Plus, however, is of a different class and the specifications just proves it right.
The Turkish handset maker has announced the phone as a high end device, but not a flagship. It houses top tier hardware fit for a mid-ranger and could get quite popular in Europe. The GM 5 Plus comes with a 5.5inch protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 4. The screen is a full HD panel having a resolution of 1920×1080 pixels. Inside the phone, there is the Snapdragon 617 processor coupled with 3 gigs of RAM. This is quite a decent combination and the Adreno 405 GPU will offer really smooth gaming performance. The internal storage will be around 32 GB and expandable up to 128 GB.
The camera department has also been given a lot of importance. There is a 13 megapixel snapper at the rear with a dual-LED flash. At the front too, there is a 13 megapixel camera that can take awesome selfies. It even has an LED flash for those low-light situations.
Other features include the USB Type C Port, a massive 3,100mAh battery and Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 3.0 technology. The device can be charged up to 60% within 30 minutes. All this comes with a price tag that won’t burn a hole in your pocket. Even though the official price has not been announced, General Mobile said that the GM 5 Plus will be priced less than 300$.
