When asked whether the second-generation Android One smartphones would cost more, Gupta opined, "We want to be within the reach of the customer segment where we're actually available today." He further added that their Android One smartphone range would be priced economically, somewhere around $100 or Rs. 6,100, similar to the current-generation Android One phones.
"Our Android One smartphone would be far better compared to the current devices, Claimed Mr. Gupta. While, he was a little apprehensive about revealing specifications of the upcoming device, however, he did confess that the second-generation Android One smartphones would have enhanced specifications.
