Google is partnering with Lava once again, to launch a new Android One phone in India.
According to a news report, Google was pretty strict when it came to defining the specifications of the Android One devices, and required OEMs to buy the parts from specific suppliers.
Well, things are about to change now, and the Mountain View company, is apparently relaxing its requirements to allow Lava to use whatever hardware components it wants to. So, it can choose from any cameras it wants to use for the new phone, and even fit in a processor from a different company, i.e, non-Qualcomm.
And it also appears that there will be only one Android One phone in the near future. Spice has said it has no plans for one, and Lava has officially declined to comment on the situation to WSJ, and so did Micromax, Karbonn and Google.
But the rumour is that Google and Lava will release the new low-cost phone soon in India.
