Second wave of Android One smartphones could be released starting December
As previously reported, Google and some of its hardware partners started releasing Android One phones earlier this month in India. At the moment, only three models are available to buy: Karbonn Sparkle V, Spice Android One Dream UNO Mi-498, and Micromax Canvas A1.

But more Android One handsets are coming soon. According to The Hindu, the second wave of Android One devices could start hitting the Indian market in late December - with a new phone made by Karbonn. Intex (another Indian manufacturer) may release its first Android One handset as soon as January. 

The list of Android One hardware partners also includes the following companies: HTC, Lenovo, Asus, Acer, Alcatel, Panasonic, Lava, and Xolo. However, there's no word on when we should expect handsets from them.

The three Android One smartphones that are available now cost about $110 each, and offer relatively similar features, including 4.5-inch displays with 480 x 854 pixels, dual SIM capabilities, quad-core MediaTek processors, 1 GB of RAM, and expandable internal memory. Google guarantees to update the handsets with "the latest software" for up to 2 years from launch. MediaTek estimates that 1.5 to 2 million Android One handsets will be sold in India by the end of the year.

It’s still not clear when (or if) Google intends to release Android One devices in other markets.
