This morning head of Android Hiroshi Lockheimer said to expect more RCS at MWC although he did not go into much detail of what we may see.
Android One is a value program created to give customers a baseline of what to expect out of certain budget devices, while Android Oreo (Go Edition) is a tweaked version of Android that's made from the ground up, including optimized apps, to run well on low-end devices with no more than 1GB of RAM.
We'll let you know when we get more news surrounding this update in the future. Android Oreo (Go edition) will also bring with itself a toned-down version of PlayStore that will recommend suitable apps and services for the user. For many enterprise customers, the question of which Android phones should be used is hard to answer.
Back in December 2017, Google announced the Android Oreo (Go edition) along with the Android 8.1 release. As per a recent leak, it will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 SoC with 1.4GHz quad-core Cortex-A53 CPU and include 1GB of RAM. According to Google, with a low-specifications requirement, Manufacturers can provide some really cheap smartphones.
Google says that in order to become part of its recommendations device, a device must meet basic hardware requirements needed to run Android 7.0 Marshmallow, meaning a minimum of 2GB RAM, 32GB storage, and a battery life of more than eight hours are among the basics. LG is also guaranteeing security patches for the phones will be delivered within 90 days from each other. These phones will also come with a version of Google Assistant that will allow people to send messages, make calls, set alarms, and more. It has just mentioned that these Android Go smartphones will be priced at less than $50.
