Android One gets a spec bump

Google is expected to reveal a new Android One device on July 29. Today, information about the next generation Android One device, known as the Lava Pixel V1, has been leaked ahead of the unveil. According to the leaks, the new Android One device will be bigger, better and faster than the original, sporting a nicer design and better specs.

Lava Pixel V1 specs

  • Quad-core 64-bit Qualcomm processor
  • 2GB of RAM
  • 5.5-inch HD display, Asahi Dragon Trail glass, 1280 x 720 resolution
  • 32GB of storage, expandable via microSD
  • 13-megapixel rear camera, f/2.0 aperture
  • 5-megapixel front camera
  • Dual-SIM
  • 3G
  • WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, A-GPS
  • Android 5.1 Lollipop
  • 2650mAh battery

For starters, the Lava Pixel V1 is quite a looker, and if the renders are to be believed, will sport thin bezels. It will have a bigger 5.5-inch HD display compared to the 4.5-inch FWVGA displays of the original Android One phones, and will now sport a 64-bitQualcomm Snapdragon quad-core processor instead of a MediaTek one, paired with 2GB of RAM, 32GB of storage and a 13-megapixel rear camera with an aperture of f/2.0. A 2650mAh battery rounds the specs, along with Android 5.1 (naturally).

Since the Lava Pixel V1 is part of the Android One initiative, it’s guaranteed to get at least two years’ worth of Android updates straight from Google, which should start with Android M. Unfortunately it seems like the Lava Pixel V1 is a 3G only phone, and will be priced higher at around $177 or around 8K.

  1. Although I am close to being an Apple-hater, I can’t deny the fact I should be thankful to them for being an inspiration to Android.

    To Android Makers: Whatever makes it cheaper, folks, but hey, a little originality would be appreciated. This is where Samsung shines best.

      You mean like the S6 which totally doesn’t look like the iPhone 6/6+?

  2. The phone seems solid, I have an Alcatel Flash Plus and have experienced the “LTE” here so I wouldn’t care if it was 3g only, I might even trade it in for that phone if we don’t get updates soon, lol

  3. Looks good hopefully performs well…Will see when they release Andorid M dapat… One thing to point out we will need power bank parang sacrfice ang battery but ut really is pretty..

  4. Meh nawala na ang philosophy ng Android, I really do hope ibahin nila ang pricing when it comes to PH market lalamunin lang yan ng buo ng AFP, Lenovo A7000, K3 Note,Zenfone 2, Firefly Mobile, at Flare X

  5. I’m sure this phone’s gonna have thick black borders around the display just like any other Chinese phone which claims to be bezel-less.
