Android One has a 4.5 ″ screen, dual SIM, microSD slot and FM radio, all for less than $ 100.
Of course, that it costs $ 100 to manufacture does not mean that it will go on sale for that price, so if we take into account the price of some Chinese terminals also with Android and with perhaps even better features, the revolutionary idea of Android One is a bit in question. We will see what happens when they are put on sale.
