An­droid Oreo launched of­fi­cially; An­droid One re­vived

Google is try­ing to re­vive the An­droid One mar­ket by launch­ing a range of de­vices, and not just en­try-level phones. Google has teamed up with Xiaomi to launch Mi A1, which is man­u­fac­tured by Xiaomi and pow­ered by Google. Al­though launched in In­dia first, the de­vice will be avail­able across Asia Pa­cific, Europe, the US, Mid­dle East and Africa.

Jon Gold, Di­rec­tor, Part­ner Pro­grams, Google, said, “As phone man­u­fac­tur­ers con­tinue to in­no­vate by de­liv­er­ing high qual­ity de­vices at ac­ces­si­ble price points, keep­ing the in­side of one’s phone in­no­va­tive, fresh and se­cure is crit­i­cal to a great ex­pe­ri­ence. We’re ex­tend­ing our com­mit­ment to An­droid One by work­ing with more part­ners to build phones that run a soft­ware ex­peri- ence de­signed by Google.”

Google refers to An­droid One as An­droid at its best as it comes with a clean, sim­ple de­sign. It com­mits to a sim­ple set of pre-in­stalled apps that don’t con­sume much stor­age space. An­droid One comes with pure An­droid OS mi­nus any cus­tom UI or un­nec­es­sary apps. They also come with Google As­sis­tant built-in, wher­ever avail­able. They also have un­lim­ited stor­age for all pho­tos and videos on the cloud.

An­droid One smart­phones get the lat­est tech­nol­ogy and se­cu­rity mea­sures. The de­vices ship with the lat­est An­droid Nougat, and also re­ceive the lat­est ver­sion of monthly se­cu­rity up­dates, and a guar­an­teed OS up­grades as and when re­leased by Google.
