Thanks to AndroidOS.in who spotted this listing, we now know what to expect from Android One smartphones. As speculated earlier, this smartphone is powered by a MediaTek processor and is sporting stock Android UI. Other Android One smartphones from Micromax and Karbonn might have similar set of hardware specifications. Also, Google might have made it mandatory to include the ‘Android One‘ term on the device and in the name of the device, making its name quite a mouthful.
