Airtel, Google partner with Lava and Micromax to launch Android Go smartphones

ZTE Temp Go is the latest Android Oreo Go Edition Phone launched at MWC Spain

Considering this Google announced a version of Android 8.1 Oreo Go which will optimize low-end hardware.

So, now, Google has rolled out Android Oreo (Go Edition). But to really gather all of the relevant info, we did a bit of extra digging to put together some more details on a few of the phones you probably hadn't heard about. It measures just 2mm thin at the edge and it combines a curved edge-to-edge pOLED 2K 5.5-inch display with smaller bezels and moulded body curves to create an ultra-compact profile.

Juho Sarvikas, HMD's chief product officer, has confirmed the availability of the Nokia 6 (2018) smartphone in the U.S. market in a recent interview. For security, it includes a rear fingerprint sensor and a facial recognition feature. Although that's not quite as cheap as the Nokia 1, it does offer a bigger screen, larger battery and more storage. Alongside its higher-end companions, the $85 Nokia 1 is an interesting device to say the least.

"Android's mission has always been to bring the power of computing to everyone".

After leaking out briefly ahead of MWC, General Mobile introduced the GM 8 Go this week. The device packed with a bunch of extraordinary features and you would get pretty much all the useful features of the current technology world at an affordable price tag.

This being Android, Google apps are the first to be optimised for Go. The device runs on Android Oreo 8.1 Go Edition, the advantage of the Go Edition is that the device remains updates at most times, similar to the devices running on Android One program.

The company has confirmed that the phone will come with a 2-year warranty and will be bundled with a Rs. 2,000 cashback offer from Airtel as well.

Buffett learned that so-called "risk-free" bonds were a "far riskier" investment than a long-term investment in common stocks. In the departure from past years, Buffett refrained from talking about the direction of the country or economy.

The Z50 features a 4.5-inch display, 1.1 GHz quad-core processor, 1GB RAM, 8GB internal space, and 5-megapixel rear and front camera with flash. The Tempo Go is a $79 phone aimed for the U.S. market.

Another Indian Smartphone maker Micromax has also launched the Android Go edition Smartphone.

Don't expect to see flagship-level specifications on Android One devices.

Since its launch more than a decade ago, itel has focused on serving consumer groups, by providing phones to emerging markets and giving millions worldwide an opportunity to own a device for the first time.

As part of our ongoing #GTUMWC2018 coverage, we are striving hard to bring you the best MWC 2018 announcements as and when they happen. Instead, the company confirmed that new Android Go options would be coming to the African market at some point this year. The newly announced Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus, for example, are both powered by Android Oreo.

Google is also returning the favour, with the GM8 Go featuring in the Android Garden's Android Go promotional area alongside Android Go phones from Micromax, Nokia, ZTE and Alcatel.
