What is ‘Android One’?

Android One is a standard created by Google for Android, mainly targeted at people buying their first smartphone, and customers in the developing world. Android One smartphones run software close to stock Android, without the often extensive vendor-specific modifications that many smartphone vendors provide. Also, security updates are handled by Google, avoiding problems some earlier phones have had with lacking security updates.

Google also makes a reference hardware design available for Android One, meaning that OEMs just have to manufacture the phone. Many of these Android devices used in India are including MediaTek chipset, 32bit MT6582, which has been the chipset for the first set of Android One devices. If you are interested to find out how MTK chips compare against other semiconductor chipsets in our robustness comparison, take a look at one of our study on this field.
