Recently, Google introduced a lite variant of the Android Oreo – called Go edition – for entry-level smartphones. This is designed especially for a developing market like India. The Go edition is meant for smartphones with less than 1GB of RAM.
The smartphones running on the new operating system are expected to be launched in the upcoming months. Although the search giant did not disclose the name of the third-party smartphones manufacturers, Killer Features reports that Lava could be one of them.
Lava has said to have raise funds worth $30 million from Tsinghua Holdings and the company will invest it into the local handset manufacturing. Lava may set up a new plant in India which is expected to start operating from next year for the production of Android Oreo (Go edition) smartphones. We don’t know whether these rumours are true or not but we will keep you posted when we hear something.
Google has come up with new apps for the Android Oreo (Go edition) which are light (i.e they will use a considerably lower amount internet data). This is an added advantage to all those who will will use internet for the first time. If Lava and Google do make this partnership work this won’t be their first time. These companies have worked cordially in 2015.
