Last year, Google Pixel is a iPhone like pricing and high-end flagship, but Google seems to want to cut the low-end market.
In fact, Google always has its own low-end mobile phone Android program, called Android One, and set the target market in India, Africa and other places, have spread to Spain, even in Japan. Because the Android One is very small, there are some manufacturers or not what visibility of the OEM, to start their own design of mobile phone, launched Pixel, Google seems to want to adjust the Android One into the Pixel system, and then listed in the U.S. market.
Generally speaking, today's India, Africa's Android One mobile phones are mostly 2GB RAM, and 13 million pixel specifications, but almost no Qualcomm SoC, mostly to take MediaTek's old SoC, and even do not identify. Although in July this year, SHARP jointly launched in Japan's Android One mobile phone for Snapdragon 617, but overall, to see the low-end machine ASUS, millet users may not be appealing, but to the United States market should be adjusted.
The news also pointed out that in the United States, Android One may alter the original strategy in developing countries, such as the original release updates will be on par with Pixel, Nexus. However, the mobile phone manufacturers, including the design, specifications and other information are no more information, only know the number of low-cost mobile phone will price in 200 ~ 300 dollars, is also listed in this year.
In contrast, Google Pixel started the international version of the iPhone 7 expensive than anecdotal, as for us version pricing at $649.
