The Pixel V1 is the very latest Android One smartphone, and with its slim bezels and attractive design, we’d say that it’s one of the best-looking Android One phones to date too. In terms of specs, the outside of the Pixel V1 holds a 5.5-inch 1280×720 display covered in scratch-resistant Asahi Dragontrail glass. There are also 8-megapixel rear and 5-megapixel front cameras that produce software-enhanced 13-megapixel and 8-megapixel images, respectively.
Inside of the Lava Pixel V1’s 8.5mm-thick body lives a 1.3GHz quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of storage (25.47GB of which is user-accessible), a microSD slot, 3G connectivity, and dual SIM slots. There’s a 2650mAh battery powering the whole package. The Pixel V1 comes with Android 5.1 out of the box, and as with other Android One phones, Google says that it’ll be updated to the next version of Android shortly after the update’s release.
Overall the Lava Pixel V1 looks like a solid addition to the Android One family, combining respectable features with a quality design. And since it’s an Android One device, buyers can rest easy knowing that their V1 won’t come loaded with bloatware and that it will get the next big Android OS update, likely before many other devices in the same price range.
