Another reason to get the Cherry Mobile One and One G1
Google’s Android One program may not be making a lot of noise right now, but we’ve learned of another reason why the label “poor man’s Nexus” applies to the phones released under the initiative. We contacted Cherry Mobile earlier to know the status of the phones in their Android One lineup in relation to Android N, and Lonson Alejandrino, Product Manager for Cherry Mobile confirmed that both the One and One G1 will receive the N update when it’s released later this year.
That makes it the second OTA update for a new version of Android that the phones will receive. The two phones received the Marshmallow update via OTA last year, only a few weeks after the phones in the Nexus program got theirs. Phones under the Android One initiative are guaranteed updates of up to two years, which translates to roughly two Android versions.
