The first Android One phone arrives in UK

Google’s budget Android One device lineup first arrived in India hoping to crack the low-cost smartphone market, and now the first Android One device has arrived in the UK and it’s called the Sparkle V from Karbonn Mobile.

The unlocked Karbonn Mobile Sparkle V is available for £130 which is about $205 in the US. Specs of the Karbonn Mobile Sparkle V includes a 4.5-inch display screen, 4GB of storage capacity, and 1.3GHz quad-core processor.

It’s not entirely clear why exactly a budget smartphone has been released in the UK since it’s not exactly an emerging markets and there are plenty of affordable devices already available, so will be interesting to see how much traction the Sparkle V gets.
