Device makers including Spice, Micromax, and Karbonn are expected to work with Google to offer inexpensive phones that offers a high quality experience and software updates that come straight from Google.
But online store Flipkart spilled the beans a bit early when the company posted a product page from the Spice Dream UNO.
The Spice Dream UNO has a 4.5 inch, 854 x 480 pixel display, 1GB of RAM, 4GB of storage, a 1.3 GHz MediaTek quad-core processor, a microSD card reader, a 5MP rear camera with flash, and a 2MP front camera, and dual-SIM support.
It has a 1700mAH battery and the phone runs Google Android 4.4.4 KitKat.
Flipkart showed a list price of R.s 6,999 which is about $115.
While those specs aren’t spectacular by modern smartphone standards, the price is hard to beat — especially when you consider Google’s involvement on the software side.
The Android One initiative is rolling out first in India but we could eventually see phones like these in other developing markets.
