When it comes to Android One powered smartphones, those used to be launched in India across several smartphones, and it seems that the Android One bandwagon is about to cross over to Europe – in the U.K. in fact, with Indian handset manufacturer Karbonn having introduced the Karbonn Sparkle V in that part of the world.
The Karbonn Sparkle V happens to be one of the world’s first Android One smartphones, and it is now available as an unlocked device over on Amazon UK for £129.99, which would place it in good stead to go up against the likes of the Motorola Moto G and Nokia Lumia 635 that will cost somewhere in the same price region. This Black Friday, however, is the time for you to save more money since this spanking new smartphone will see further discounts added to it, so that its price will drop to £99.99.
What is one of the main advantages of the Karbonn Sparkle V? It is more or less certain of receiving newer versions of Android for a couple of years down the road, which is one of the characteristics of Android One smartphones, and right now, it runs on Android 4.4 KitKat with a very real proposition of picking up Android 5.0 Lollipop in due time.
