Android One comes to Thailand with the i-mobile iQ II


Google’s Android One continues to expand as Thailand is now the latest country to join. The i-Mobile iQ II will be the first such device sold in the country. It features a 5-inch HD display with an 8 megapixel rear camera and a 2 megapixel front camera. The i-Mobile device is also compatible with Thailand’s 4G networks.

Out of the box, it will run the current version of Android, Android 5.1.1, and should also receive regular updates as Google rolls out new versions of its mobile OS.

i-Mobile launches iQ II in Thailand

The i-Mobile iQ II is available online and at various retail locations in Thailand, and costs just 4,444 baht. It’s a great option for many Thais who want a high quality and premium style Android phone, but without the high price tag.

The phone has a 5-inch 1,280 x 720 resolution display (i.e. 720p), as well as the 8 MP camera already mentioned, plus a 2,500 mAh battery and 16 GB of storage, though that can be expanded to 32 GB. The iQ II also has dual-SIM support, and 1 GB of RAM.

Because it’s an Android One phone, the i-Mobile iQ II hardware has already been tested by Google with Android 5.1.1 (Lollipop). Lollipop brings Google’s slick Material Design look-and-feel, up to 2 x better performance, plus battery saving features and better notifications.

If you want to buy the new i-Mobile phone, you can buy it direct from, and it’s available in both black and white variants.

  1. I fail to see what’s so special with this phone. It’s right in the average price range for similarly-spec’ed chinese no-name imports. The specs are nothing to get mad about, anyway. 1Gb RAM tends to belong to the entry-level models these days, it has a 5 inch screen but the on-screen virtual buttons eat up a significant part of it. What a boring design, too. The only distinctive feature is that it’s sporting Android 5.1.1, something your average chinese no-name phone doesn’t have… yet.
