Google says that users of Android Go will find that even with apps installed they have twice the storage capacity of those using Android Nougat. In its blog the company stated, "Our partners' phones running Android Oreo (Go edition) will hit shelves in early 2018".

Indian multinational handset-maker Lava launched LAVA Z50 - one of the first smartphones that run the new Android Oreo (Go edition) operating system.

To solve this problem Google has announced Android Oreo (Go edition).

"Entry level 4G smartphones under Airtel's "Mera Pehla Smartphone" program will be shipped with Android Oreo (Go edition) as standard OS starting March 2018", the telecom operator said. The Lava Z50 is a dual SIM (GSM and GSM).

Micromax is expected to launch the Micromax Bharat Go this month or the next in India while Google chose to showcase it at the Mobile World Congress for the world to see. The price of the phone will reconfirmed at the time of availability. This is Google's new operating system designed specifically for low-end phones or that do not pack as much RAM as other expensive phones. To get it on your phone, go to the Beta Labs, sign in/up with your account, input your phone's IMEI, and if it's approved, you should get the update notification for Oreo soon on your device. In the intervening year, Google appears to have loosened the constraints on Android One. Each of these devices pairs high quality hardware from our OEM partners with a software experience designed by Google to deliver an experience that is smart, secure, and simply awesome.

HMD Global has launched the Nokia 1 smartphone in the HMD Global press conference in Barcelona. Google promises that these phones will run significantly better, use less data and storage and will stock the Play store with special 3 party "Go" or "Lite" apps that meet rules set by Google - Skype and Facebook (Inc Messenger, Instagram and Whats App) for example already have apps available on the store that meet these benchmarks. The smartphone features a 13-megapixel image sensor on both sides of the device. The smartphone is available with a cashback of Rs 2,000 from Airtel. We have changed some key things. Looking ahead to the next 10 years, we're committed to strengthening our partnerships to foster innovation, and bringing consistent and high-quality experiences to everyone. If the phone does make it stateside, it will most likely only support AT&T and T-Mobile networks (like it's the case with the Nokia 6).

"Android's mission has always been to bring the power of computing to everyone, and part of that is ensuring a great experience across the broadest range of devices", said Sagar Kamdar, director of Product, Android.
