First Android One smartphones could be released starting next week, Android L updates to come in October
Reportedly, the Android One handset that might be available to buy in India next week features dual SIM capabilities, a 5 MP rear camera, and a 1700 mAh battery. Other features could include 1 GB of RAM, a quad-core processor, expandable internal memory, a screen of at least 4 inches, and Android 4.4 KitKat. Indian manufacturers Micromax, Karbonn and Spice are all set to start offering Android One devices, though it’s not clear which company will do it first. In any case, The Economic Times notes that their Android One handsets will cost between 7,000 and 10,000 INR ($115 - $165), while offering a user experience that’s usually found on mid- to high-end products.
Interestingly, it’s said that Android One smartphones will be updated to Android L in October - which means that regular Android devices should receive updates to the brand new version of Android at about the same time.
According to a previous report, Google plans to spend millions of dollars to promote Android One handsets in India. We guess that we’ll see soon if that’s true or not.
