Android One is Google’s program designed to help smartphone makers deliver low-cost smartphones with strong support for Google’s Android software. For the most part these phones are currently offered in developing markets including India, Indonesia, and now Thailand.

The iQ II features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor, a 5 inch, 1280 x 720 pixel display, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of built-in storage, a microS card slot for up to 32GB of removable storage, and a 2,500 mAh battery.

The phone has an 8MP rear camera and 2MP front-facing camera. It’s a dual-SIM phone with support for 3G and 4G data speeds.

While there are certainly phones with better specs, the i-mobile iQ II offers a pretty strong feature set for a $126 device. Perhaps most importantly, it features hardware that’s been tested by Google and guaranteed to play well with the latest versions of Android.

  1. Too big Anything over 4.78 is just too big. Motog G at 5 inches, just way too big to carry around. You might as well get a tablet and a very simple phone.

  2. Good. Now pleeeze update the Android One phones in Indonesia. And make them easier to actually buy.
