New Android One handset features a fingerprint scanner and more
The original idea of Android One was to expand the use of Android in emerging markets. To do this, local manufactures followed certain specifications developed by Google to produce low-priced stock Android handsets. The latest Android One phones come with Android 7.0 pre-installed and are guaranteed one OS upgrade. There is speculation that the Android One program will be expanded to the U.S. later this year.

Meanwhile, at MWC General Mobile introduced a new Android One phone meant for consumers in Turkey. As the price of components drop, companies are able to add more and more  features to the low-end Android One models. For example, it might surprise you to learn that the new Android One handset features a fingerprint scanner, and a front-facing flash for the 8MP selfie shooter. The camera on back weighs in at 13MP.  We should mention that the 5-inch display features a 720 x 1280 resolution, and carries protection from Google Glass 4.

A MediaTek chipset is under the hood, containing a quad-core CPU. The device comes with 3GB of RAM, and 32GB of native storage is inside. Keeping the lights on is a 3000mAh battery.Among the pre-installed apps are Allo and Duo. The GM6, as the handset is named, will be available in Gold, Rose Gold, and Space Gray. Pricing is expected to be affordable in keeping with Google's mandate for Android One.

It has a Mediatek MT6737T processor with Mali-T720 MP2 and has nougat. Yet there are still devices that do not have nougat.
