But don't be surprised if the first release of 4X is TD-LTE/CDMA only.

I know Huawei has been regarded as one of those mobile companies who rarely get their midrange, low end and even some of their high end models updated to latest Google updates every now and then. But hey, even popular brands like Sony, LG, Samsung, and HTC are also being criticized for not being blazingly fast in updating most of their midrange and low end models' OS versions.
I guess they'll have more chances of quick OS updates if they join the One program. Just try to look at those Indian One phones, they beat other companies to Lollipop. Even if they are low-end specced but impressively price tagged. I guess Motorola might be one of these influences when they started with Moto G and Moto E's aggressive pricing. But for now One phones are only available to India, nevertheless, it has been reported to be come to other countries' markets, some of India's neigbouring countries included.
So yes, I agree, I hope more mobile brands get into One program and I hope they make them available worldwide. If they get into One program, maybe Google can prioritize having the latest Android versions for them. If Huawei and Lenovo gets into this, it's a bonus for me. I think, Motorola gets support in updating to Android's latest version even if they are not involved in the One program. I'm almost equally impressed that Sony is one quick fox to line up for Lollipop but I'm still cross-fingered until they deliver :-)
The catch here is battery. It will come with 2000mAH battery for 5.5' 720p display.
64-bit snapdragon phone for €100? I must be dreaming, or there's typos
For 130$ us, how couldyou ever expect an update? Buy another in a year fir that price. Man were can you get a 64 bit chip and 13 mp camera for that kind of cash? I am sure you can flash lolipop custom
Even a low end Chinese phone is 64-bit while Nexus is still 32.

Wish they released a phone in India with same specs and similar pricing as part of the android one program. Bet that will sell like crazy.
The logo on the back of the phone is actually China Telecom e-Surfing which is TD-LTE and CDMA/EVDO (only). So I doubt this model works with all the networks detailed in the article.
Specs maybe good it's the OS updates that are always lacking.
Horrible update initiative or the lack of on almost all their phones.
Their mantra is put together something cheap and push to market and then completely neglect that product. Cost and specs are not the only thing that matter.
€100? Does sound unbelievable. No really. Or perhaps its a promotion.
