What is Android One?
We’ll keep the answer Simple,
Android One is a line of consumer electronic devices that run the Android Operating System, it was launched about a year ago. It is a standard created by Google for Android systems, mainly targeted at people buying their first smartphone.
As introduced by one of Google’s Head, Sundar Punchai, The aim of the Android One Program is to produce and distribute quality smartphones/gadgets with:
*Latest Android OS version
*Ability to Run software close to stock Android
*Incredible Specifications, must be Google certified and yet at an Affordable price
I think with that, the devices should be able to reach every class of people.
