Google is holding an event in India this week where the company is expected to unveil the first smartphones developed as part of the company’s Android One Initiative.

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 page has been removed, but a number of websites including Android Police, have posted pictures that give us a good idea of what to expect.

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.

    1. But you will never see a single software update… which is the exact opposite of Android One.

  1. I wonder if these phones will have a smoother more responsive experience than the bloated flagships that’re out now.

  2. The price is easy to beat, it’s not low at all by India standards. Xiaomi even crushes it with 99$ for 4.7 inch 720p quad A7 , 8 MP cam.

    In fact Android One phone makers seem to want to milk the fast software updates for some extra profit and not very interested in good prices.
    This was a mistake from the start , Google just wanted to keep it’s services on Android phones in India and not let India go the China way where they lost the market. But their solution was far from the best and easiest way to do it. They aren’t getting good pricing, the old guard phone makers can’t be too happy and if sales won’t be great , Google doesn’t achieve it’s goals either.
