Thursday in CE: Android Go Gives Low-end Android Phones a Facelift
As an early adopter, it is a weird feeling to hear about an updated Android version straight from Google that has nothing to do with the flagship phone they produce. We are always looking for the newest and latest features that really show-off just how powerful the phone is.
Android Go is almost the literal opposite.
Launched on six phones this week, Android Go is a stripped down version meant to run on low-end devices. It factors minimal storage space, limited processing power, and spotty internet connection without compromising too much of Google's operating system. Google accomplished this by making a light version of Android Oreo, which would be called Android Oreo (Go Edition), as well as making their full suite of Go apps available.
