Google to release new Android One phone in India in 2015
Android Marshmallow adds 'high fidelity sensor support' flag for developers

Though Alphabet is hoping its Android One will make a comeback.
From a technical standpoint, the program worked. Meanwhile, a Spice spokeswoman said there were no plans for a second Android One device at present.
You could easily still have a gadget running Android 4.4 or earlier (the latest version is 6.0). Rumor has it that the device will be priced between $31 and $47.

But the program was a commercial flop. Still, there should be plenty of room in India for Google and the rest of the industry to thrive. Many flagship Android phones, such as the Samsung Galaxy S6, LG G4, and HTC One M9, come with software that looks and feels entirely different from one another. Moving forward, Google will ease those guidelines a bit, letting companies pick from a larger variety of components.

When Motorola debuted the first Moto X in 2013, it worked with Qualcomm to tweak its Snapdragon S4 Pro chip by adding dedicated digital signal and sensor processors.
However, it lost momentum amidst lack of interest from OEMs and buyers. Google's response to the lack of sales and OEM interest in Android One has been to lift many of these restrictions, and now we're not even sure what the program represents anymore.
Google is negotiating deals with chip makers to help solve fragmentation, one of the biggest problems with Android, The Information reports. They'll now have "more freedom" to choose components, features, and pricing.
Market analysts have suggested that the shipments of Android One smartphones in India were just over a million units in the first year - a 3.5 per cent share of the market for devices that cost $50 to $100. Google may also want to smooth out a few of the inconsistency of features across handsets, which comes from hardware developers designing their own devices and chips. The idea was that Google would do this so that manufacturers didn't have to, saving them the effort of having to design and source parts for a phone. A Nexus-style chip may work in a similar way. So it's no surprise Google would take a page from the company's playbook.
