What is Android One?
The Android one smartphone program focuses on bringing high value features to a low value smartphone. Android One strives to provide a unified feature set tailored-made for the market the phone is launching in.
The first smartphone which is joining the Android One family comes from the most popular Indian brand Micromax.
All the devices under the Android One banner get the most recent Android release. Now that is a show stopper. The Android One smartphone from Micromax packs features that are most important for users. These are FM Radio, Dual SIM support, microSD card and a low price. This smartphone will come cheaper than Moto E, that is, it will cost less than $100 or ₹6000.
Obviously Micromax is not the only brand that is going to produce Android One based smartphones. Sundar Pichai, the senior vice president at Google shared that besides Micromax, phone makers Spice and Karbonn are also taking part in Android One.
