Upcoming GREE Smartphone Rumored to Feature Snapdragon 835 Processor



The Chinese smartphones aren’t new to the world, either they come from a Chinese brand or at least manufactured in China. Four of the top six largest smartphone brands come from China. While early last year, LeEco (LeTV) entered the smartphone market in China and later expanded its operations in the U.S and India. Apart from LeEco, we also saw a new smartphone brand in China called GREE. It is one of the major home appliances companies in China but debuted the smartphone market in 2015. After two years after its first smartphone launch, now the company is rumored to launch smartphones in early 2017. While one variant will be sporting entry-level specification, another device will be powered by flagship specifications including the recently announced Snapdragon 835 SoC.

Earlier this year, while MediaTek for the first time launched the deca-core tri-cluster processor, Qualcomm went back to quad-core design by announcing Snapdragon 820 processor with custom Kryo cores. Now the Snapdragon 835 SoC is yet to be completely revealed, but the Qualcomm mentioned this new processor to be built on Samsung’s 10nm FinFET process. Along with GREE smartphone, the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S8, LG G6, Xiaomi Mi 6,  and OPPO Find 9 are expected to come with this new processor. The new processor also supports Quick Charge 4.o that comes with improved efficiency and is said to offer 20% faster charging than Quick Charge 3.0. With Quick Charge 4.0, the battery can be charged from 0% to 50%  in less than 15 minutes. Few leaks also suggest the Galaxy S8 that will be unveiled at MWC 2017 to be the first smartphone to feature Snapdragon 835 SoC.

In the first half of 2016, the company launched its latest flagship smartphone GREE 2 in China. The device sports an all  metal body with curved edges on the side. It came with a large 6-inch display with Quad HD (2560 x 1440 pixels) resolution and a 2.5D glass on top. Under the hood is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 quad-core processor clocked at 2.15GHz and coupled with Adreno 530 GPU. There is 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. Just like many high-end smartphones, there is no MicroSD card slot for storage expansion. It runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow with the customized UI laid on top. In the camera department, there is a 16MP rear camera with LED flash and an 8MP selfie camera on the front. The physical home button on the front also come integrated with a fingerprint sensor.

The device is kept powered on by a 4,000mAh battery that also supports Quick Charge 3.0 fast charging technology. While its first smartphone is launched at 1600 Yuan, the latest GREE 2 is currently retailing at 3599 Yuan which is more than double of what its predecessor is costing. Talking about the upcoming GREE smartphone which we can expect to be named as GREE 3 will be featuring the same metal body as on its predecessor. As seen with the recent launches, the company might bring in two variants where the high-end variant will be featuring 6GB of RAM. By the time of official launch, we also guess the device to run on the latest Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box. Stay tuned on Phone Radar for more details about the Snapdragon 835 powered smartphones.
