Android Go is a program by Google through which the company focusses on the emerging smartphone markets. The goal is to increase the usage of the internet in the upcoming markets by launching budget-friendly 4G phones. India is soon going to get new Android Go phones in this month.
Google has made a contract with companies like Micromax, Lava, Karbonn, Intex, and others. The phones will run on Android Oreo and will cost something around Rs 2,000 or $30. These Android Go phones are known for having 1GB RAM and will be loaded with the lite versions of Google Play Store, Maps, YouTube, Google Apps, Gmail, Google Assistant, and more.
A Google official has confirmed that these Android Go phones will launch in early 2018. Micromax will be the first to release a phone in collaboration with Google and it will probably launch on January 26. The other brands are going to launch these Android Go phones later. The Nokia 1 is an Android Go phone and since it is such, the phone will likely cost Rs 2,000.
We are looking forward to these phones and so are the Indian smartphone manufacturers who have faced a severe decrease in the market share, thanks to the Chinese companies like Xiaomi. Google’s CEO, Sundar Pichai, believes that the Indian sub-continent has its ideal phones in the range of $30.
