If rumors are to be believed, you can expect the launch of new smartphones pre-loaded with Android Oreo Go Edition within the next few days. According to Factor Daily, Google has established a partnership with India-based smartphone manufacturers such as Intex, Micromax, and Karbonn to launch new smartphones loaded with the lightweight Android Oreo.
There are reports that Micromax will launch the smartphone initially during the upcoming Republic Day for below Rs. 2000. It is to be noted that Android Go version is exclusively oriented for smartphones with less than 1GB RAM. Hence, you need not have to expect a device with 3GB or 4GB RAM. Moreover, the storage capacities will also be less since the apps are designed to consume fewer resources.
Commenting on the development, an official who declined to reveal the name has disclosed that Android Go edition smartphones will launch before the end of January 2018. The company official also added that many people are now coming online to perform various work related to their daily life. Hence, there is an urgent need to manufacture budget-friendly smartphones with a lightweight Android operating platform.
The Android Go system will target those group of people who carve to go online but unable to invest huge money. Hence, the company has decided to take the effort to the next level to enable budget users to benefit from the rich features offered by Android Oreo.
In addition to India-based manufacturers, HMD Global is also gearing up to launch Android Go-powered smartphone named Nokia 1. However, you will have to wait until March to experience the functionalities of the Nokia device. We can also expect the launch during the upcoming MWC 2018.
Google announced Android Go program at Google’s I/O conference in 2017. The highlight of Android Go is that the platform is exclusively designed for budget-friendly smartphones below 1GB RAM. Moreover, the Go platform will be bundled with less resource hungry versions of YouTube Go, Google Maps Go, and Assistant Go. Google is also planning to launch a separate category on the official Play Store to include apps specifically designed for smartphones loaded with Android Go.
