After introducing its Dream Uno handset to the UK, Spice is now taking its Android One smartphone to other locations such as Indonesia, Nepal and Sri Lanka. Additionally, the company has revealed that the device will go on sale with the latest version of Android Lollipop which is yet to get officially revealed by Google.
The search giant officially announced its plans of bringing the Android One program to Indonesia and it also revealed that version 5.1 Lollipop would come preloaded with these handsets. Spice’s smartphone won’t be called the Dream Uno in this country. Instead, the company will be offering the device under the Nexian Journey One branding.
What’s more, the handset will be the first to reach the market with the new OS which improves battery life and offers better security amongst other enhancements. Additionally, Google has announced that the latest platform will also be reaching existing Android One handsets in India in the next couple of weeks.
Spice is looking to achieve the same success in Indonesia, Nepal and Sri Lanka that its pure Android handset managed to attain in India. And despite the change in name, the smartphone will basically offer the same design and hardware which includes a 4.5-inch IPS display, dual SIM card slots and a 1.3GHz quad core processor.
Spice Dream Uno/ Nexian Journey One specs:
– Android 5.1 Lollipop
– 4.5-inch FWVGA IPS LCD panel
– 1.3GHz quad core MediaTek Cortex A7 processor
– 1GB RAM, 4GB storage, 32GB expandable
– 2MP front camera, 5MP rear snapper
– Dual SIM support
– 1700mAh battery
Google notes that the new Android One handsets including the Nexian Journey One from spice will sell for under 1.5 million rupiah (approximately Rs 7340).
