Celkon is making its foothold in the low end phone market with its Android KitKat smartphones.

Celkon Millenium Ultra Q500 is company’s seventh smartphone launched this year. The company is also planning to launch a Windows OS based smartphone next month.

Celkon has also tied up with Google for the low cost  smartphone initiative Android One, which is targeted at emerging markets, starting with the South Asian nation.

Celkon became the fourth Indian smartphone vendor to tie up with Google. Micromax, Karbonn Mobiles and Spice are the other vendors to join the Android One initiative.

Celkon executive director Murali Retineni stated  that the company has tied up with Google for Android One and is preparing to launch devices as part of the project around October this year.

Celkon has been focusing in the high-volume, low-cost handset market, which has given them sixth and seventh position in terms of market share.

By joining Google’s initiative, Indian smartphone vendors are looking to get brand recognition at the local and global level. Micromax and Karbonn have already entered into some global markets, while others are aiming to do the same.
