Android One hits Europe with SD410, 2GB RAM-laden General Mobile 4G

Ever thought of having a mid-range device running on Google’s Android One program? Your wish may come true as the internet search giant unveiled the low-cost Nexus program for the first time in Europe with the introduction of the General Mobile 4G.

The General Mobile 4G ups the ante of Google One smartphones by offering mid-tier specs — There’s a 5-inch HD screen, a Snapdragon 410 chip as opposed to Mediatek cores used on most devices currently in the program, 2GB RAM, and a 13-megapixel rear camera included. It touts a faux-leather back cover, and runs the latest Android 5.1 out of the box, with ensured updates to the latest updates guaranteed for two years.

  • 5-inch IPS HD display, 1280×720, 294ppi
  • Corning Gorilla Glass 4
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 chip
  • 2GB RAM
  • 16GB internal storage

With upgraded specs come a price increase as well. The first Google One smartphone for Europe, specifically in Turkey, will be sold for $260, or roughly around Php 11,700. Some users are reporting that taxes are heavy in Turkey and the device may cost $175 (Php 7,900) before Turkish taxes, which positions the phone in direct competition with other affordable mid-range phones. Would you consider this device once it hits Philippine shores?
