Android One: now in Turkey

Android One

Android One’s entry into Turkey marks the expansion of the initiative to a continent other than Asia for the first time. Overall, Turkey is the seventh market to be supported by the program. Bangladesh, India, Indonesia, Nepal, the Philippines, and Sri Lanka are the others.

According to 9to5Google, General Mobile will be the first in the country to carry Android One smartphones, but they will come at a higher cost. It has received word from Re/code that these devices will cost about $260, which is more than twice as much for Google’s target price for hardware.

Nevertheless, Android One devices will cost around a fourth of the price of flagships, and they have the benefit of receiving OS updates for up to two years.
