Android One manufacturers

As you may know, Google had an event scheduled today in India, where the company unveiled their first lineup of Android One devices. The three new Android One handsets announced during the event were the , , and the .

All three handsets run Android 4.4 KitKat and offer identical hardware. You get 4 inch display with 480 x 854 pixel resolutions, 5 megapixel rear cameras, 2 megapixel front cameras, 4GB of storage which can be expanded through microSD, 3G connectivity, and 1.3GHz quad-core MediaTek processors with 1GB of RAM.

With only 4GB of internal storage, users will be left with just 2.3GB of usable space. Because of this limitation, the Spice and Karbonn phones will not take pictures unless a microSD card was inserted into the device. Fortunately both companies have provided an additional 8GB microSD card with their package. Without the card, you also won't be able to download content or take screenshots on both handsets.

As you know, the Android One devices will work like the Nexus series, receiving updates directly from Google. In order to enable this Google has also partnered with local carrier Airtel to give buyers the extra of having free OTA updates and 200MB of free app downloads from the Play Store.

Amazon India, Flipkart and Snapdeal will all be selling the new phones, and starting prices run at around $100 off-contract. You can purchase them using the following links:
