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.
