Google is all set to unveil the second-generation Android One handset — made in collaboration with Indian manufacturer Lava Mobiles — later this month. Earlier rumors suggested we'll see the official launch on July 14, which has since been pushed back to July 27. Ahead of the official unveil, details regarding the handset — which is called the Pixel V1 — have leaked, giving us a first look at the upcoming changes to the Android One platform.
Based on a posting at Indian retailerMySmartPrice, the Lava Pixel V1 boasts upgraded hardware in the form of a 5.5-inch 720p display (first-gen models came with a 4.5-inch FWVGA (854 x 480) display), 1.3GHz Qualcomm quad-core CPU, 2GB RAM, 32GB internal memory, microSD card slot, 8MP camera at the back and 5MP front shooter (interpolated via software to net 13MP and 8MP images), Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, 3G and dual-SIM connectivity along with a 2,650mAh battery. The specs show how Google is continually tweaking the hardware on offer with Android One.
