GREE is a China-based smartphone manufacturing company we’ve talked about quite recently. This company has introduced several smartphones thus far, and after months of silence, their new smartphone has leaked last week. The company’s CEO, Dong Mingzhu, was spotted using the device, and it was just a matter of time before we see it released by the company. Well, that has just happened in China, read on.
The GREE 2 is the company’s new flagship handset, and it looks just like we thought it would. This smartphone resembles several Meizu and ZUK-branded devices as far as the design is concerned, while it sports a physical home button below the display, and it is made out of metal. The GREE 2 is actually quite a powerful smartphone, the 6-inch QHD (2560 x 1440) display is placed up front, while the device comes with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. The 4,000mAh battery is also a part of this package, and it is not removable considering this handset sports a (metal) unibody design. The 16-megapixel camera is placed on the back of the device, and an 8-megapixel snapper can be found up front. Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 64-bit quad-core processor fuels this phablet, and the Adreno 530 GPU is here for graphics rendering. Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow comes pre-installed on the GREE 2, and on top of it, you’ll find the company’s very own custom UI. The GREE 2 also comes with Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 3.0 support, which are good news considering there’s a 4,000mAh battery included here, as already mentioned. The power / lock and volume rocker physical keys are placed on the right-hand side of this smartphone, and the physical home key also doubles as a fingerprint scanner.
That’s pretty much it as far as GREE 2’s design and specs go. The company has confirmed that the device will cost 3,300 Yuan ($504) in China once it becomes available, though we don’t know when exactly will that happen. GREE did not officially say when will the GREE 2 go on sale, but you can expect that to happen really soon, stay tuned, we’ll keep you posted, as always. This phablet might not be the most affordable handset in China, but it sure does offer high-end specs, it will be interesting to see how well will it sell.
