The search engine giant Google introduced its budget mobile platform recently in Asia under Android One initiative. While in India, the campaign was supported by local brands including Micromax, Karbonn and Spice through online retail stores, now Google has further made plans to expand to the US and UK market.
While, there is no information of the US market, but reportedly has entered Europe market, by launching the new Android One handset Karbonn Sparkle V over there.
The Karbon Sparkle V can now be bought via Amazon UK for £129.99 (Rs.12,695 approx.), which gives a tough competition to Android devices under similar price range. Further, the new Karbonn Sparkle V will be available for £99.99 ( Rs. 9,763 approx) on Black Friday.
Karbonn Sparkle V - Key Specifications:
Specswise, Karbonn Sparkle V sports a 4.5 inch display along with a resolution of 450 x 845 pixels. It has 1.3 Ghz quad-core MediaTek processor, along with 1GB of RAM. Further, it features a 2 MP front facing camera and 5 MP rear camera, alongside 4GB of internal memory.
The Android One users have been promised with newer versions of Android update for the next two years and currently runs on Android 4.4.4 KitKat out of the box.
However, the response for the Android one is not so encouraging in the Asian market. So will Google be benefited by its next move? Share your opinion in the comments section below.
