Last month Google announced to develop their Android Go platform for the Indian consumers. Android Go focuses on providing best Android OS experience for the low-end smartphones. Now reports have come in that Micromax will be the first company to launch an Android Go powered a smartphone. The reports suggest the launch happening within this month. In this article, I will discuss how to buy Micromax Android Go, its specification & price.
Micromax was able to land a partnership with Google, and as a result, they are planning to launch a sub Rs 2000 smartphone running on android Oreo (Go edition). Now as per factor daily, other domestic smartphone manufacturers like Intex, Lava and Karbonn will soon follow the trend. We might see a wide range of similarly priced smartphones running on Android Oreo (Go edition).
Google’s Plan on Android Go Smartphone
Google aims at reaching out to billions of Indians, and Android Go is an essential part for that. Nowadays, decent Android-powered smartphones are priced at under Rs 5000. But Google plans to bring the price margin even lower, as low as Rs 2000. They plan on doing so by customising the Android Go OS which is based on Android Oreo. Android Go is customised to run on low-level specification smartphones.
Micromax Android Go Specifications (Expected)
This Rs 2000 phones are expected to feature 512MB to 1 GB RAM for multitasking. For internal storage, there will probably be 8 GB of internal storage. Qualcomm and MediaTek both have shown interest in Google’s Android Go initiative. So some new low-end processors can be expected from both the chip manufacturers. Also, the phones will come with pre-installed lite version apps for Gmail, YouTube and more.
However, this is not the first report o an Android Go powered a smartphone. Last month, there were rumors about a Nokia device to soon hit the Indian market running on Android Go. The device was named Nokia 1 and is expected to be the first Android Go running smartphone from HMD global. The Nokia 1 is expected to feature an IPS LCD HD display with 1 GB of RAM and 8 GB of internal storage. As stated previously, it is likely to run on Android Oreo (Go edition) out of the box.
