Android One in Italy: low-cost smartphones coming in July

Thanks to the company General Mobile, the low-cost smartphones of the Android One project arrive in Italy, guaranteeing timely updates

Android One is Google's project to bring its smartphones even in the poorest nations of the world. The Mountain View company provides companies that want to be part of the project with the software and the guarantee of constant updates. The companies must guarantee, however, an excellent value for money.

And from July this year, the low-cost Android One smartphones will also arrive in Italy thanks to General Mobile, a U.S. company that has managed to establish itself as the world's largest manufacturer of Android One devices. After having brought its smartphones in over 26 countries around the world, General Mobile will increase its radius of influence in another 14 countries including Italy. In Europe this is not a novelty, in fact the company is already active in Belgium, Netherlands, Luxembourg, Greece, Slovenia and Cyprus.

For the landing in Italy, the American company is ready to launch two devices with an excellent quality-price ratio: the GM 6 and the GM 5 Plus. As usual for General Mobile smartphones, both devices will mount a stock version of Android and will be guaranteed quick updates and the release of security patches.

Features GM 6

The GM 6 was presented by the US company during the Mobile World Congress 2017 in Barcelona, the worldwide event dedicated to smartphones and tablets. The GM 6 presents features that place it in a fairly low price range: the smartphone mounts a MediaTek6737T chipset, 2GB or 3GB of RAM and 16GB or 32GB of RAM depending on the version purchased. The rear camera is 13 megapixels, while the front one is 8 megapixels. The battery is 3000 mAh and the smartphone also has a biometric reader.

The smartphone will go on sale from July both on the manufacturer's website that will be created for the occasion and in physical stores. As for the price yet there is no official news.
