Android One, the program which got introduced at the Google I/O 2014 event where smartphone manufacturers could come up with low priced standardized handset and they will never have to wrry about the OS updates, as Google will be taking care of the same.
Already Micromax, Karbonn and Spice got the approval from the software giant during the conference, however it looks like few more native manufacturers are all set to join the queue.
Yes, reports are in that Celkon Mobiles has inked a partnership with Google, along with Intex for the Android One devices. However, it's not sure when the first commercial Android One based phone will be launched in India. Meanwhile, we have already seen the prototype from Micromax at Google I/O.
Moreover, what is even more surprising is that according to Chia-Lin Chang, president of global sales and CFO, HTC, the Taiwanese company is also considering to join hands with Google for the same program in an attempt to boost its dropping market share in developing nations.
There is not much information about what hardware Google will be opting for the Android One devices, but since it is a low-end smartphone which will be cheap as well, you can expect a decent hardware with stronger software backing.
