Google intros new Lollipop-based Android One smartphones in Asia


Earlier this month, Google quietly released several Android One handsets that run Android 5.1 Lollipop out of the box. Today, Google announced two other Lollipop-based Android One smartphones, this time in the Philippines (which becomes the sixth market included in the Android One program).

The new handsets - pictured above - are the Cherry One and MyPhone Uno. Their features haven't been revealed, though Google says they're both affordable, so it's probably safe to assume they're not too different from the Android One smartphones previously released in other markets (thus offering FWVGA displays, quad-core MediaTek processors, and 1 GB of RAM). The Cherry One and MyPhone Uno will be available to buy in the Philippines starting the coming weeks.

All in all, it looks like Google is slowly but surely spreading the Android One program all over Asia - or at least in the region's emerging markets. Even Xiaomi is considering launching Android One smartphones (though it's not clear if it's going to actually go ahead with this plan). We're really curious to see how these Android One handsets are doing sales-wise, but, knowing how Google almost never discloses sales numbers, we might not find out too soon. In any case, the fact that Google continues to work with smartphone makers to release more and more Android One devices is a sign that the program might be successful, eventually.
