With MWC 2018 in full swing, we've finally had our first taste of the new, entry-level mobile phones running Googles slimmed down version of Google Android, Android Go. From the Nokia 1 to the ZTE Tempo Go, were seeing inexpensive devices aimed at emerging markets come fully packaged with Google's suite of applications, albeit in an optimized format. While you may be feeling with Google Go, it's indeed comparable to Google's Android One, but still a totally different beast. 

What actually is Android Go? And what's the distinction between Android Go and Android One? Heres all you need to know about Android Go.

What's Android Go? 

Android Go is a slimmed down version of Android Oreo and was the first time at Googles I/O in 2017. Android Go is almost half the size of the standard, stock Android operating system. The launch of Google Android Go has also seen the arrival of minimal Go optimized applications, meaning devices will come bundled with compressed applications like 

These applications use less memory and are half the size of their full feature counterparts. This way, they work well in regions of the world where there's less data coverage. Touting 30% faster start-up times and a 2x optimization of storage, Android Go will be capable to deliver the Google Android operating system on devices with less magnificent specifications. The best thing? There are no hardware restrictions. 

Android Go against Android One

Google has been trying to crack the entry-level market with Android One for many years, and it really hit its stride this year. A whole host of inexpensive devices which come packaged with the firmware have been unveiled in these years MWC, like the Nokia 7 Plus and the Nokia 6 Android One Edition. 

Both Android One and Android Go are meant for the same market so you may be confused about the distinction between the two. The main difference is in fact quite minimal both are bloatware free. 

Nokia 7 Plus is Nokia's new mid-range has a touch of luxury - With Android One, Google has aimed to defrag its entry-level Android apparatus by outlining specific hardware constraints, with manufacturers having to select from Googles approved the list of hardware components. Manufacturers need to stick to this if they would like to use the firmware. With those hardware constraints, however, users will be capable to receive a better overall Google experience. 

Pros || Why Android Go? 

That is why the company wishes to supply them with a brand new generation of cheap, sub-$100 smartphones which work faster, provide more memory, and help decrease data consumption. It sounds like a brilliant plan on paper because it might allow Google to increase the number of consumers of its applications and services. 

Nevertheless, software is just one part of the equation. The company has to get as many hardware partners as possible on board which will flood the market with mobile phones, which won't only need to be cheap, but additionally easy on the eyes.

The payoff is that, with mobile phones having hardware constraints, the spending budget phones will get regular security updates and constant UI improvements. This is done in order that phones which are unable to handle Android One, simply won't run it. 

But Android One had a rocky start when it first launched back in the year 2014, mainly because manufacturers were reluctant to register for Android One's strict list of hardware requirements.

Smartphones with Android Go

Android Go, also known as Android Oreo, is a stripped down version of Google Android designed to run on entrance level smartphones. It is comprised of 3 optimized areas, the OS, Google Play Store, and Google applications, that have been reimagined to offer a better experience on smaller hardware. 

The requirement for mobile phones in emerging markets such as India is on the upswing. Google awaits the next billion consumers to come from all of these states, in which the buying power is lower than in the West. 

Six mobile phones were declared, with probably the most intriguing one being the Alcatel 1X. The Alcatel 1X comes in 2 variations and starts at &euro, 100 for one SIM and &euro, 110 for dual-SIM version. You may get it with either 2 or 1 GB of Memory, each of which includes a 5.3 inches display with a resolution of 960 x 480 pixels, a 5 MP selfie snapper, and a 2, 460 mAh battery. 

Other Android Go devices declared at MWC comprise the Micromax Bharat Go and Lava Z50, both of that are targeted at Indian consumers. Then there is also the GM 8 Go and the ZTE Tempo Go, that goes for $85 from the U.S. We saw the very first batch of Google Android Go apparatus at MWC 2018 in February.
