What was Android One in 2014?

The Evolution of Android One: When we launched Android One in India back in 2014, the goal was to get the next billion people online by providing them with high quality, affordable phones. While we’re still looking to reach those users, the larger community has told us they value what Android stands for across a range of phones. A pure software experience that is accessible and stays ahead of the curve, with improvements to battery life, usability, and of course—security.


Taking the next step with Android One

Over time, more high-quality hardware is becoming available at more accessible price points, but keeping the inside of one’s phone innovative, fresh and secure is critical to a great experience. We’re extending our commitment to Android One by working with more partners who build devices that run a software experience designed by Google.
