The Android One series from Google heads towards its second generation with better hardware than earlier and a great pricing. The objective of Android One is to bring advanced hardware capabilities at affordable pricing to the emerging economies and now there is a new manufacturer to the list.
Lava has announced the launch of the Lava Pixel V1, which is the company’s first Android One smartphone launched in partnership with Google. The device has a 5.5 inch IPS display with Asahi Dragontrail glass protection, oleophobic coating and resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. The smartphone is powered by a 1.3 GHz quad core processor with 2 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal storage.
The Lava Pixel V1 has a 13 MP BSI rear camera (software enhanced 8 MP sensor) with 5P LarganTM lens and blue glass filter for images with enhanced clarity. Pixel size of 1.4 micron & f2.0 aperture allow more light intake resulting in good images in low light conditions. There is an 8 MP BSI front camera (software enhanced 5 MP sensor) with 4P LarganTM Lens and Blue Glass Filter for those selfie lovers.
Lava Pixel V1 measuring just 76.3 mm wide is impressive with a 76.3% screen-to-body ratio, making it amazingly comfortable to hold. Running on the latest Android Lollipop version with direct updates from Google for the next two years its a great deal.
