Welcoming Lava to the Android One family

The goal of Android One is to ensure that more people have high-quality, up-to-date smartphones — and today we move another step towards that goal by welcoming Lava International Limited, one of the fastest growing mobile handset companies in India. Lava’s first Android One smartphone, the Lava Pixel V1, is now available in all leading national retail stores, multi-brand outlets and online at Flipkart.com starting at Rs 11,349*. 

The Lava Pixel V1 is a stunning phone, available in two striking colors — White-Silver and Gold.
The 5.5 inch wide HD screen is great for watching videos and the slim design packs 2GB of RAM and 32GB Internal memory (further expandable up to 32GB) for all of your favorite movies and music.

Of course, the Lava Pixel V1 also comes with all of the benefits of an Android One phone. First, it runs the latest version of pure Android (Lollipop 5.1), which provides up to 2x better performance and extended battery features. Second, it automatically gets upgraded to the next version of Android (according to Lava's schedule), so your phone stays fast and responsive over time.

Less than one year ago, Google introduced the Android One program in India. Since then, partners have helped to bring Android One to eight additional countries. We’ve been thrilled and humbled by both the progress and the work that’s left to do. But we look forward to continuing our work with partners on Android One and in the Android ecosystem more broadly to ensure that users have great phones with the latest Android innovation.
