This could meant Android One, this could meant something wholly different. My believe of this device is that: a.) it’s being grown alongside a Pixel 2 and b.) will not be sole in a US (assuming that it leaves a antecedent stages).
9to5Google’s progressing report pronounced Google is formulation a Pixel phone “aimed during opposite markets” with a reduce cost and reduction absolute hardware.
