Google today has started sending out invites to the media for a September 15 event in India. The invite teases that the event is for “an exciting new product announcement” and promises more details closer to the date of the event. Obviously, with it being held in India, the first thing that jumps to mind is that we will hear more details regarding Android One.

A report last week claimed that Google was looking to launch Android One devices with at least three manufacturing partners, including Micromax, Spice, and Karbonn, as soon as this month in India. The report also claimed, however, that the devices would be more expensive than Google originally teased at I/O this summer. Allegedly, the devices will be priced between Rs 7,000 and Rs 10,000 in India, which is more than the RS 6,000 price point Google originally promised.

Nevertheless, Google looks to be making a big push for Android One in emerging markets, and we certainly can expect to hear more on September 15th.
