Google’s Android One Project Expands to Nepal, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka

After India, Google will soon introduce its Android One project in 3 neighboring countries – Nepal, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka. The three Android One phones already selling in India, along with some new ones from Local OEMs will be available for purchase in these countries.


Under its Android One project, Google partners with local smartphone manufacture to help them develop a low cost budget Android smartphone which works rather well and provides with decent Android experience.

Software is directly controlled by Google and this implies, budget Android users get to taste latest Android updates without much delay.

In Bangladesh, local manufacturer Symphony will launch their first Android One phone – Symphony Roar A50, alongside Micromax Canvas A1, Karbonn Sparkle V and Spice Dream Uno already retailing in India.

While the first wave of Android One devices is yet to release Android 5.0 Lollipop in India, we have heard whispers that next wave of Android One smartphones with Qualcomm chipset will hit Indian market very soon. Google has partnered with 9 more OEMs including Xolo,Lava, HTC, Panasonic, ASUS, Alcatel, Intex, Lenovo and Acer.

At India launch event, Google announced that it also plans on taking this ambitious project to Indonesia, Philippines and Pakistan, but perhaps there is still some time before it reaches all countries in Indian subcontinent.
