First Android One device leaks, priced at Php5K
We’ve reported about the Android One project which is basically Google’s initiative to offer low-cost devices running the company’s operating system. The first device (apart from the teased handset) is set to be launched in India on September 15, 2014, but details got leaked revealing its specs and pricing.
Spice Android One Dream UNO Mi-498 specs:
4.5-inch IPS display
1.3GHz Mediatek quad-core processor
Up to 32GB via microSD
5MP rear camera with LED flash
2MP front camera
10GB Spice Cloud storage
35GB Google Drive storage
Android 4.4.4 KitKat
Price: Rs 6,999 (Php5,060)
Spice’s Dream UNO was revealed by retailer Flipkart that posted a purchase page on their website as preparation for its official launch tomorrow. In terms of specs, the device isn’t all that overwhelming, but the fact that it is priced at a converted value of Php5K gives it a competitive edge against other brands.
Stay tuned for more details as this handset, along with all the upcoming Android One devices, may possibly enter the Philippine market as well.
