Last year, during the Google I / O search giant introduced a preliminary version of Android 5.0 Lollipop, and a program to Android One. Last intended to be an alternative to Nexus for developing countries: these devices are relatively modest performance, cost, support for two SIM-cards, microSD and guaranteed updates directly from Google within two years.
The first three apparatus, Spice Dream UNO (Mi-498), Karbonn Sparkle V and Micromax Canvas A1, were destined for the Indian market in September last year, and in December, the program was expanded to Bangladesh – released smartphone Symphony Roar A50. Devices do receive updates and ambulances are currently running the latest version of the platform – Android 5.0.2 Lollipop.
Now, Google has extended the program for another one country – Indonesia. The official website of Google appeared three new smartphone Android One – Evercross One X, Nexian Journey and Mito Impact. All of these devices differ exactly the same key technical characteristics as the previously announced smartphones markets of India and Bangladesh.
As in the case of India, Google was able to strike a deal with a local Indonesian operator Telkomsel, through which users this the network can receive free updates via the mobile network, as well as use the free 200 MB of mobile data per month to download applications from the store Google Play. Supported and offline mode YouTube (the possibility of downloading videos via Wi-Fi for later viewing in the absence of the Network).
Indonesian smartphones Android One can offer a 4.5-inch screen with a resolution of 854 × 480, the processor MediaTek MT6582 with 4 cores Cortex-A7 @ 1,3 GHz and graphics Mali-400 MP, 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of internal flash memory (plus support for microSD), battery 1700 mAh, and a 5-megapixel rear and 2-megapixel front camera. There is nothing new, but the most curious is not the technical characteristics and pre-installed OS – Android 5.1 Lollipop (And Google separately mentions that future updates of Android in the next 2 years will go on these devices among the first).
Thus, Google quietly introduced the next OS update, which apparently is intended to correct a considerable number of errors in the work and problems in the user interface Google Android 5.0, detected since the start of the OS. Very strange that so imperceptibly been presented fairly serious (by number) OS update. However, perhaps this is a new approach to naming assemblies Android.
Anyway, this is not the fault of the site Google – the network has already begun to appear photos of new smartphones Android One of Indonesia, which is actually an operating system Google Android 5.1. Thus, this update in the coming weeks and months must be received on cell phones lines Nexus, Google Play Edition and Android One on the basis of standard versions of the OS, and then on the other smartphones Android.
