September is winding up to be quite the busy month, and now Google itself is getting in on the fun. The company has just sent out media invitations to a Special Event set to take place on September 15th in India. While the invitation is fairly cryptic – all we can really gather from the invitation, seen above, is that we’ll be talking Android – today’s reports indicate that Google plans on announcing a new partnership (dubbed “Android One”) with OEMs to release a lineup of low end, budget smartphones running Android.

Google is said to be working with a variety of OEMs, including relative no-name brands Karbonn and Spice, in order to launch a variety of devices soon. No word yet on whether or not we’ll get any more information on either Android 5.0 “L” or the true successor to the Nexus program, but we’ll let you know what happens to come out of the corporate giant’s mouth.
