News has been going around that Google CEO Sundar Pichai will be in India for the first time since his new appointment as CEO. Reports also highlighted that Pichai will be meeting PM Narendra Modi and President Pranab Mukherjee. Now, new reports suggest that Pichai will be launching the Android One version 2 in India.

An event is scheduled to be held on December 16 and invites have been sent out already that reads, “At Google, we believe that technology can change people’s lives for the better. Indians are coming online at an astonishing rate with affordable smartphones. These new users have a completely fresh view on what the Internet has to offer. Please block your date for an event with Google as we outline our vision for these users.”


The invite refers to affordable phones that lets new users access to the internet. Google had launched the sub-Rs. 3000 Android One phones last year, but they failed to get noticed due to the onslaught of Chinese makers.

India was the first country to release Android One devices that comprised of four phones – Micromax Canvas A1, Karbonn Sparkle V, Spice Dream UNO, and Lava Pixel V1. All except Spice Dream UNO are now upgradeable to Marshmallow OS.

While the first version failed to make an impact, Google has been talking of a revamped Android One for the Indian market. The company plans to launch the sub-Rs. 3000 Android device as part of Google’s (as well as PM Modi’s) push for a connected India.

    If you want people to aspire and adopt technology, stop selling them low key stuff. Its high time companies understand that touch is not for rough! If their TG is what I think it is, they should make their entry phone tougher and future proof! #Google

    They should start offering phones priced between 15k to 20k with close to flagship specs in order to compete with their Chinese and Indian counterparts.

    I want Android one products for price range of 9000Rs to 15000Rs. That’s the range where most of the people who know about stock Android and want it’s benefits

    Yup.. But X Play didn’t seemed to be good and X Style priced very high.. 400$*60 = 24,000 but in India its 30,000

  • Tushar Malhotra

    Motorola is the best option. They offer most stable stock Android.

  • Abhishek C Raveendra

    They have Android One in under 7000 price tag. They have Nexus in above 30,000 price tag . What the hell should people do who need Pure Android with 15,000 or 20,000 price buyers..?
