General Mobile has been in the business of producing Android One smartphones in conjunction with Google since last year (when the General Mobile 4G was launched), and it’s adding another smartphone, the General Mobile GM 5 to that collection with the latest version of the Android operating system, Android 7.0 Nougat.
The GM 5 is a budget smartphone, but specs like Android 7.0 Nougat OS and dual LED flash could make you think otherwise.
