Google Android One Program Lands in Europe

Google’s Android One, a standard created for Android systems, mainly targeted at a range of customers looking forward to buying their first smartphone. The devices are usually low-end and run the latest version of Android. This program is already up and running in countries such as India, Bangladesh, Philippines and Indonesia.

Google has announced that Turkey will get its first Android One smartphone, the General Mobile 4G on May 15th. The device is mid-end on the basis of specifications. It will run the latest version of Android and will be supported by Google for 2 years from launch; it is priced at $263 off contract.

  • 4G LTE Enabled

  • 5 ” IPS with Resolution of 1,280 × 720 and protected by durable Gorilla® Glass 4

This is one of the biggest launches we’ve done anywhere, not just India, Phillipines and Indonesia. For us Android One was a journey to try and reach the next 5 billion people. And India accounts for a substantial portion of the share where free border trade with Nepal was also included. It was found that nearly 7 percent of Android Ones produced in India were bought by people from Nepal. Android One was conceived deeply with India in mind. VP of Google, Sundar Pichai said in NDTV Interview.
