Google today announced a brand new Android One smartphone, which, for the first time ever, is made for Africa. Called Infinix HOT 2, the handset is - like every other Android One device - affordable. The new smartphone is already available in Nigeria, where customers can buy it for around $88 via various retailers, as well as online via Jumia (the largest online retailer in Nigeria). In the near future, the handset will also be released in Egypt, Morocco, Ghana, Ivory Coast, and Kenya.

Currently running stock Android 5.1.1 Lollipop, the Infinix HOT 2 will be updated to Android 6.0 Marshmallow at some point. The smartphone (pictured above) comes in five different colors: black, white, blue, red, and gold. The gold model has 2 GB of RAM, while the other four only have 1 GB. Other features include a 5-inch display with 720 x 1280 pixels, a quad-core 1.3 GHz MediaTek processor, dual SIM support, 8 MP rear camera, 2 MP front-facing camera, and 16 GB of expandable internal memory.

The Android One initiative is now almost 1 year old, and it's slowly expanding throughout the world (as the launch of the Infinix HOT 2 is proving).
