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

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.
