You can’t blame FREETEL for trying to make a name for itself.

We saw the company make a concerted push of its current smartphones back at CES. Now, it has a new Android Marshmallow phone and, in the spirit of the OPPO F1, it’s got an aluminum back panel with diamond-cut edges. And in the spirit of the more expensive phones this year, it has two rear cameras, too.

Then again, it’s not about the spirit as it is about the beautiful and elegant looks — that’s what the Japanese kanji 麗 (pronounced “rei”) stands for. It also seems wise — as the kanji 怜 symbolizes (again, pronounced “rei”).

But enough about etymology, what about the innards? Well, there’s a 5.2-inch 1080p screen, the rear camera sensor comes in at 13 megapixels with PDAF, and there’s an 8 megapixel camera up front.

An unnamed octa-core CPU is assisted by 2GB of RAM. There’s 32GB of storage and a 2,800mAh battery.

Details are still sparse about the device, but we are being promised a Q2 launch in Japan and the US.
