FREETEL, a smartphone manufacturer based in Japan, today announced intent to bring its 5.2-inch REI to the US. Set to arrive in the second quarter, the phone runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow and features mostly mid-range specifications.


The REI will be sold unlocked and will be compatible with a variety of carriers; however, it’s not clear if the handset will offer 4G LTE connectivity, nor, if so, which bands.

The REI is designed with an aluminum back cover with a diamond cut edge and will be sold with four color options. Although the exact colors are not listed, we see black, silver, rose gold, and gold options. Colors will vary based on market.
