Google has made smartphones accessible to all Filipinos. In an event at Whitespace Manila Tuesday, Vice President of Product Management Caesar Sengupta officially announced that Android One smartphones will soon be available in the Philippines.
According to Sengupta, “Our goal is to create a high quality mobile experience and get it into as many hands as possible.”
“These are high-quality phones and they feel really premium (but) cost less than Php 5,000,” he added.
Android One will be released as Cherry One and MyPhone Uno. The phones come with features like dual SIM slots, an FM radio tuner, microSD card slot and with at least 1GB of RAM and 4-8 GB of storage space.
The two phones will run the latest version of Android operating system Lollipop and will receive automatic Android updates for up to 2 years.
Android One smartphones are already available in India, Bangladesh, Nepal, Sri Lanka, and Indonesia.
