Google is gearing up for the launch of Lava made Android One smartphone. The device is set to be launched this month on July 14 for Rs. 12,000, reports Economic Times. Instead of targeting first time smartphone buyers like first batch of Android One, this smartphone will focus on those buyers who have used smartphones before.
Last year, Google launched three Android One phones with three different companies- Micromax, Spice and Karbonn. These companies took devices from original device makers (ODMs) in China and had no control over hardware and software, and thereby were not able to modify the components. The upcoming device however will be controlled by Lava and will provide an enhanced experience to the users.
As for specifications, what we have learnt so far is that Google’s upcoming Android One phone will be powered by a MediaTek processor coupled with 2GB of RAM. It will feature a 5-inch display.
The first batch of Android One phone on the other hand, is powered by a 1.3GHz processor paired with 1GB of RAM. Running Android 4.4.4 KitKat operating system, it features a 4.5-inch FWVGA display with 854×480 pixels resolution. There is 4GB of inbuilt storage which is expandable up to 32GB via microSD card. It sports a 5 mega pixel rear camera, 2 mega pixel front facing camera and is backed up by a 1700mAh battery. Latest Android One phones from Lava will certainly pack more RAM and larger display.
