Next batch of Android One smartphones to be announced in India by December end
Google left no stone unturned with the launch of the Android One initiative in the Indian market. These devices were initially made available with the first hardware partners including Micromax, Karbonn and Spice priced under Rs 7,000. With the overwhelming response for this lineup, it appears like these vendors along with more will be working with Google to launch the second batch of Android One smartphones in the country soon.
While announcing the first batch of Android One smartphones, Google also announced that it has partnered with more OEMs including Indian vendors such as LAVA, XOLO and Intex for the same program. Now, the latest reports circulating all over the online world reveals that the next lineup of Android One smartphones will be launched before the end of this year, that is December 2014 in India.
It is the Indian market that has got the Android One devices first and the other markets such as Indonesia, Philippines, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal and Sri Lanka would be receiving this lineup soon. For the same, the US based search engine giant has teamed up with more OEMs including Acer, Alcatel OneTouch, HTC, Asus and Lenovo for launching Android One smartphones.
All the smartphones in the Android One initiative currently are based on the same reference and features but with different build and design. These handsets with aspiring aspects are priced pretty low to lure the entry-level smartphone seekers. You can read more about Android One smartphones from here.
