Gigabyte isn’t known for making phones, but the company is planning to release a new Android handset called the GSmart G1355 that will boast dual SIM support. Plus, it will come with low to mid-range specs, meaning it should be priced for the budget-minded.
The Gigabyte GSmart G1355 is expected to run Android 2.3 Gingerbread and offers moderate specs. It sports a 4.3-inch WVGA display with an 800MHz Qualcomm porcessor, 512MB of RAM, and 1GB of ROM. It offers WiFi, GPS, 3.5mm headset jack, and a 5-megapixel rear-facing autofocus camera with LED flash. It also has a microSD card slot, expandable up to 32GB.
The device overall looks sleek, measuring in at about 11.5mm thick and weighing about 170g. It’s expected to launch sometime later this month, which means it will likely make a showing at MWC. Pricing information has not been revealed yet.
