The Sharp X1 is priced at JPY 70,524 (approx Rs 40,500). It comes with 18 months of guaranteed Android updates from the company. It is most expensive Android One smartphone yet.

- Android updates
- USB Type-C port
- Fingerprint sensor
- Dust resistant
- Water resistant
- Three color options

While there is no sign of a new Android One smartphone in India as of now, it is a good sign that Google is continuing with the initiative. However, the new device is way costlier than the other Android One devices, which goes against the motive of the program.
