Cherry Mobile teases second Android One phone

Cherry Mobile updated its Facebook cover photo Monday to a front-and-back image of what may very well be the company’s second-generation Android One smartphone. The photo suggests a release sometime in August.

For the uninitiated, Android One represents Google’s plan to bring the latest Android software to emerging markets like the Philippines through low-cost devices, though it hasn’t worked out well for the American search giant.

That’s not to say the Cherry Mobile One, and the MyPhone Uno, for that matter, aren’t good options for cash-strapped consumers — they are; in fact, the One remains one of my favorite handsets in the bargain basement, even months after its launch. But for all its merits, it’s still a 3G phone, which ultimately stopped me from talking about it like a used-car salesman. Hopefully, Cherry Mobile’s next Android One offering comes with 4G LTE connectivity.
