Android One in the Philippines

Android One, Google's push to make better, cheaper smartphones for everyone, is heading to the Philippines, thanks to new offerings from Cherry Mobile and MyPhone.

Learn more about the launch of Android One and what it means for Philippine mobile users in Victor Barreiro's report.

Google announces Tuesday, February 17, it is bringing the Android One initiative to the Philippines.

It begins with the unveiling of new phones from Philippine mobile phone makers Cherry Mobile and MyPhone.  

Caesar Sengupta, Google Vice President says Google aims to get these phones into as many hands as possible.

CAESAR SENGUPTA, GOOGLE VICE PRESIDENT FOR PRODUCT MANAGEMENT: Android One is our initiative to try and bring very high quality mobile phones at very affordable prices for everyone.

Following the Android One playbook, the Cherry One and the MyPhone Uno also boast features tailored to the Philippine audience.

That includes dual SIM slots, an FM radio tuner, and a microSD card slot for extra storage. 

The phones will also sport at least 1GB of RAM and 4-8 GB of storage space, all within a whopping P5,000 peso range.

How does Google deliver quality at a fraction of the price of high end phones?

Android One is a set of Google guidelines that allow manufacturers to make quality Android smartphones quickly at low costs thanks to a mix of sourced hardware, upgraded software, and easy connectivity.

With its formal release in the coming weeks, Android users and newcomers to the Android ecosystem have plenty of reasons to be excited.
