Google has ventured far and wide with ranges extending from search engine, mobile programming and handsets are mere streams we dare to enlist. The technology giant had started its Anroid One smartphone within the boundaries of the Indian soil, presented as an entry-level handset with latest Android operating system.
Currently, though, this endeavor reflects a so-so acceptance from the mass, triggering challenge to the tech giant. Challenge driven, Google once again realized its endeavor—this time—outside India. As a year ender, Google announced its expansion of Android One market to other Asian countries including Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Nepal. For the first time ever, we can take a good look at the variant of Android One manufactured not by an Indian mobile company but of Bangladesh, the Symphony Roar A50. With the price tag indicating a BDT 8,700 (or roughly $112), it appealed to the budget-friendly mobile handlers.
Symphony is one of leading mobile companies in Bangladesh. It is all set to distribute Roar A50 within the next few weeks first at their homeland. On the other hand, the Android One variant is said to be powered by Android 4.4 Kitkat OS but is promised to be upgraded into a Google Lollipop. It sports 4.5” IPS screen with mere 480×854 pixels. Chipset indicates a quadcore processor clocking up at 1.3 GHz MediaTek MT6582, running at 1GB RAM.
Roar A50’s life source comes from a 1,780 mAh battery. Other features include a 5MP rear camera back to back with a 2MP front snapper. For back up storage, it capacitates an 8GB internal storage also expandable to 8GB external via microSD which comes as a free bonus.
