Google’s Android one project was claimed as an affordable version of Nexus. Because along with Nexus devices, android one devices also will also receive all the latest security and software updates. In India, Nexus is made by LG and starts at 44,000, which makes it unaffordable to larger mass. On the other hand, first gen Android one was made by Micromax at only 7,000. But this initial version wasn’t a hit due to many reasons.
Now, Google has joined hands with Indian company Lava, MediaTek chip set. This device is controlled solely by Lava unlike first-gen devices, which took devices from original device makers (ODMs) in China. So, the user experience will surely be with Indian sensibility.
Google has launched android one in countries like Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Turkey, Philippines, Nepal. In India, it plans to make it big with this next-gen Lava device, so it has invited all top Google officials to July 14 event.
Nexus isn’t a big hit in India, so is the first set of Android one devices. But Motorolo devices did made it big here. Lets wait and see if Next-gen android one devices from Lava will become a hit in India!
