Smartphones under the Android One initiative from Google has entered the Indian market just last week and it looks like its going to stick to the market for quite a long time.
Thus far, the Indian handset makers including Spice, Micromax and Karbonn have introduced their respective three devices at a budget friendly price under Rs. 7,000 and now news relating to the second wave of Android One devices have already started making rounds.
If you were following the Android One story, you must be aware that nine more OEMs have signed in for the same program. Apparently, few of these manufacturers might launch their handsets before the year closes down i.e. before December 2014 in India. Its current new partners include Acer, Alcatel OneTouch, HTC, Asus and Lenovo, along with Indian brands like Xolo, Lava and Intex.
It is to be noted that India is the first country where the US-based firm's Android One devices have been launched for the first time.
Another news regarding the same initiative from Google is that within a next couple of months the current Android One smartphones will be introduced in more nations including Pakistan, Indonesia, Malaysia and China besides several other nations.
The Android One smartphones come with a ridiculously low price and unimaginable specs of mid-rangers. Basically it's a value pack consisting of 4 or 4.5-inch display, quad core processor, 1GB RAM, 5MP Rear Camera, 2MP front camera, 4GB Internal storage (expandable), latest Android version, and a decent battery.
So this might be the best possible kind of configuration a smartphone under the price range of Rs. 7,000 can be bought. The new batch of Android One handsets' entry in late December might also bring some sort of problems against the sales of the India-born smartphones.
