Banglalink, in partnership with Symphony, have finally unveiled the much-awaited Android One device, Symphony Roar A50.

On December 22nd, Google announced that the Android One devices would be arriving in Bangladesh, Nepal and Sri Lanka. For those who still have confusion on what Android One is, here’s a recap: It is in short a platform where OEMs are not allowed to tinker the software so that Google can provide the optimum user experience at a dirt cheap price thus expanding Android to even more people. The devices are bare bones in terms of specs and design but are built to provide a high quality experience.

    Just got android lollipop 5.1 update on my symphony roar A50… Straight jump from android KitKat 4.4.4 to android lollipop 5.1 without having to go through 5.0. Google was delaying their commitment to give android 5.0 update on android one phones. But i guess they made it up with direct 5.1 upgrade. Phone is really smooth.
