"There is also a new set of pre-installed Google apps, including Google Go and the Google Assistant for Android Oreo (Go edition), created to be lighter and more relevant to the unique needs of the next billion users", Caesar Sengupta, VP, Next Billion Users team at Google had said in a blog post last month.

Android Go is Google's latest effort to tap the lower-tier of Indian smartphone market after an unsuccessful run with Android One programme.

Last month, Google launched Android Oreo Go edition for low-end smartphones.

Rumours suggest that Android Go devices could be launched by the end of this month. The launch date comes from a source close to the company who was not authorised to comment on the subject. Other smartphone makers will then follow the suit and launch their Android Oreo Go Edition handsets in early 2018.

After Android One, Google is all set to bring Android Go budget phone series in India.

So important was this news that many fans and users of the Google mobile platform have not been slow to start fantasizing about the details of this ultra-low phone. Interestingly, the upcoming smartphone will be priced around Rs 2,000. Android Oreo Go was made available to manufacturers last month and it was promised that we will be seeing Oreo Go devices pretty soon. It is highly possible that this is the Nokia 1.

Notably, HMD Global recently launched Nokia 2, is a sub-Rs 7,000 smartphone with a 5-inch HD LTPS display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 212 SoC with a 1.2GHz quad-core CPU, 1GB of RAM and Android 7.1 Nougat. It is believed that the Android Go smartphones will arrive with 4G LTE connectivity. The devices could become the replacement mobile the flawless gift for someone who starts his stage with smartphones for the first time. The search engine giant has begun this program to release Android Go phones in emerging markets. Slow processors along with low storage and memory lead to a slow and clunky experience and smartphone makers have no other option to maintain the low price. There will also be Go version of popular apps for this OS. One of the interesting features of Nokia 8 is "Bothie" that allows using both the front and back cameras at the same time.

It is clear that the terminal will not compete with the phones of Samsung, LG, Xiaomi and other consolidated brands in the market, of course, that is not their goal either. As for storage, we do not expect to see more than 8 GB, although we do not rule out the possibility of expanding them through a microSD card.
