The surprise launch of the Android N Developer Preview now comes with an equally surprising addition to the devices that are eligible to run this pre-released OS. The Android Beta Program has added the General Mobile 4G, which is part of the Android One initiative, to that list.

The phone was first released in May 2015 in Turkey and has a 5-inch HD IPS display, a 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon chip, 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage. It joins the Nexus 6, Nexus 9, Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, Nexus Player and Pixel C on the list of products that are eligible to run the Android N Developer Preview. It's possible more devices will be added to this list before Android N is officially released.

The Android N Developer Preview is just that — a developer preview. While it's now "release candidate beta" quality we still have to issue a word of caution. Tread lightly.
