Android L wasn't the only thing Google discussed during its annual Developer Conference keynote. It also introduced Android One– a project that aims to deliver smartphones to emerging countries. The price tag of the phone was said to be under $100. We now know that the smartphone will launch as soon as October, thanks to a report by the Economic Times.
Google plans to spend a lavish $16.7 million on marketing so that the $100 Android One has a successful launch. Economic Times also reports that the Head of Android, Sundar Pichai, is expected to visit India for the launch.
The Android One phones are said to be manufactured by home makers Spice, Micromax and Karbonn. Google will provide some hardware reference points and regular software updates. There will also be local partners that will pre-install apps on the smartphone.
Android One has basic specs, as seen on the I/O keynote. It's a 4.5-inch smartphone, with a dual SIM, a slot for an SD card, and FM radio. At just $100, it's bound to be a hit in emerging markets. Google hasn't announced official statements on the matter yet, so let's cross our fingers for a launch soon. After the debut in India, the Android smartphone will expand to other developing countries.
