Android Go is Google's latest attempt to build an Android version designed specifically for low-end phones, and the company has announced that we will begin to see the first devices running the reduced operating system at the Mobile World Congress.
Android Go was announced for the first time in Google I / O last May as an Android version designed to work on cheaper and less powerful phones with only 512 MB or 1 GB of RAM. In December, a version of the operating system, called "Android Go (Oreo Edition)", was made available to device manufacturers and developers, and we are now reaching the point where the devices will be launched.
Most of what makes Android Go different is reduced to the "Go" versions of Google applications such as YouTube, Gmail and Maps, which take up less space on phones and are designed to use less data than apps normal.
According to the Google publication, the first devices should be available for purchase "shortly after" that will be announced at the MWC.
