A Google-devised program for hardware builders making smartphones, which was originally designed for smartphone users in emerging markets and was started at Google’s I/O conference in 2014 was named Android One. Focusing on the entry-level device for the emerging market, it comes without any equipment that manufacturers like to bundle in, which means no skins, no additional services, and no duplicate apps, no pre-loaded apps like Microsoft Office or Facebook app, and no additional news apps are present. Nokia is the biggest supporter of Android One. Nokia has a full portfolio of the device using the software.
The phone that runs Android One:
The first Android One mobile phone was the HTC U11 Life. However, Nokia made a huge commitment to Android One, after that. With the LG G7 One, LG also joined the Android One list. Other than these mobile phones, Xiaomi Mi A2 executes on Android One, and Motorola One supports Android One. A pure Android experience free from bloat is facilitated by Android One. Some devices are also fast enough to update to a new version of Android. Nokia is one of them. It made the fastest update to its portfolio.
What does Android One feature?
Android One is considered to be the “purest form of Android”, by Google. It is known to be the best version of Android, right from the box.
Google apps including YouTube, Maps, and Google Duo and the full suite of Google services are supported by Android One. To ensure that our apps are secure, the Android One phones also come with built-in Google Play Protect.
Optimized for Google Assistant, Android One phone allows us to use Google’s helper to hail a ride, text a friend, and to perform all other things with Assistant on other devices.
A device receives up to two years of upgrades to the latest version of Android by using Android One, which means that an Android One phone on “Oreo”, will be upgraded to “Android 10”.
Manufacturer hardware support:
The hardware elements of a manufacturer’s device are also supported by Android One. The HTC U11 Life, for example, added a squeezable frame, to have software support for it. The manufacturer’s own camera apps are also provided.
