Few days back, Google launched the similar project of Android One in Indonesia and launched three new devices- Evercoss One X, Mito Impact and Nexian Journey which packs with same specifications which we found in Indian Android One smartphones. All the Indonesian Android One devices runs on Android 5.1 out of the box which means the update would be Android 5.1 instead of Android 5.0, but we are not sure yet.
