Google launches the first Android One handset in Myanmar
Google has expanded its Android One program to Myanmar. Under this program, Google aims to release high-quality, budget Android devices that deliver a great usability experience and are always running the latest version of the OS.
Myanmar is the eight country where Google has launched a handset under the Android One program since its initial launch in India nine months ago.
The first Android One phone to be available in Myanmar is the Cherry Mobile One, and it runs on Android 5.1.1 out of the box. Based on the first-generation of Android One devices, the Cherry Mobile One comes with a 4.5-inch display, a quad-core processor from MediaTek running at 1.3GHz, a 5MP rear camera, 2MP front-facing shooter, 8GB of internal storage, 1GB RAM, and a 1700mAh battery.
Google promises that the handset will “automatically receive an update to the next version of Android” soon after its release.
The Cherry Mobile One will be available for purchase in retail stores across Myanmar from June 26 with a price tag of Ks109,000.
