Android One is launching in Turkey, its first country outside of Asia

Android One, Google’s project to bring affordable smartphones to people around the world, is arriving in Turkey – the first time an Android
One phone has been available outside of Asia.

The company is partnering with General Mobile to build the appropriately-named General Mobile 4G, which also happens to be the first Android One phone to offer LTE connectivity. Spec-wise, the phone features a Snapdragon 410  processor, 2GB of RAM, a 5-inch HD display, and a 13M camera.

It’s a marked improvement over previous Android One devices, although it comes with a higher price tag to match.

Whereas other Android One devices sold for around $100, the General Mobile 4G retails for approximately $260, which possibly reflects different expectations for smartphones in Turkey compared to the previous countries of India, Bangladesh, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Indonesia and the Philippines.
