    Gretel A6

    [​IMG]

    Specs:


    Leaked News:
    The latest leaks from the new brand Gretel is the A6. It’s reported that A6 will boast the 5.5 inch 2.5D curved display from Sharp company, the camera offers an excellent 13MP Samsung sensor. In addition, Gretel A6 will pack with the AAC box speaker technology for a clarity, loud and comfort voice while making calls or chatting fact-to-face.

    From the leaked photo of Gretel A6, the appearance design is stylish and good-looking. The camera lens are shown on the top, volume keys located at the right side, and fingerprint sensor on the back of the phone. With premium aluminum alloy back cover and CNC curved edges, sure, maybe it doesn’t feel as premium as the Samsung or iPhone, but really impressive one, especially if you adore large screens and virtual assistants.

    Gretel already launched A9 and A7 in March since they jumped to the public market in 2017. As a total new brand, it seems that Gretel wants to take the place in Chinese smartphone market and leave the tough position behind as fast as they can. Regarding the upcoming product lines, Gretel has not leaked anything out, but I believe it will come soon and hope they can focus on the high-end smartphone with cutting-edge technology! Let’s look forward it !
    No further details for A6 smartphone, but Gretel says that all their products will go on sale very soon after a launch, because it means all are in stock then. Hope they announce the launch of A6 soon. So what do you expect with Gretel A6?
