General Mobile, a Turkish smartphone manufacturer in partnership with Google, has announced the newest member of the Android One family, General Mobile GM6. The new General Mobile GM6 is an affordable Android One smartphone with an active fingerprint scanner.
The Android One program was launched a few years ago by Google to push its Android phone OS onto cheap phones. The Infinix Hot 2 was one of the few devices to make use of this program from Google when it was launched. What distinguishes these cheap Android One phones from other devices is that they run stock Android ROM with a promise of updates directly from Google.
With General Mobile GM6 Android One, smartphone users are provided with the necessary hardware and up-to-date software to provide the best user experience.
In addition to the advantage of using the latest version of the Android operating system with the GM6 Android One, users can also enjoy great selfies with a flash 8MP front camera and 4.5G with super fast internet access and share the information they want. GM6 Android One is also complemented by an excellent design that features superior technological features.
General Mobile's success with Android One in the World
General Mobile Chairman Sebahattin Yaman expressed the happiness of launching General Mobile GM6 Android One as the fourth product of cooperation between Google and Android One program.
“Egregious; General Mobile 4G, our first product in the framework of the Android One program, has achieved significant success in many countries, and the most preferred phones in the survey [MOU1] were in the top rankings. Then we started selling the second and third phones of the Android One program, General Mobile GM5 and GM5 Plus model in 20 countries and succeeding worldwide.”
“When we developed the device, we chose the 5-inch size, the largest single-handed display, and developed the GM6 Android One using the Gorilla® Glass screen, the most durable screen glass ever worn by Corning®."
Referring to their partnership with Dolby, Gölcü said, "It's possible to experience a virtual surround experience thanks to software developed with hardware support with GM6 Android One."
