Nokia 1 Included In The First List of Android Go Handsets

ZTE Temp Go is the latest Android Oreo Go Edition Phone launched at MWC Spain

Bezels on the General Mobile GM8 aren't exactly extremely thin, but this is an entry-level smartphone, so that's not exactly surprising.

Among Indian smartphone makers, Micromax too has shown interest in Android Go.

As part of "Mera Pehla Smartphone" programme, Airtel has partnered with several mobile handset manufacturers to build an "open ecosystem" of affordable 4G smartphones.

The Nokia 8 Sirocco is sporting a 5.5-inch p-OLED curved display with QHD resolution. The display is covered with a 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass for protecting the device from scratches. Its specifications are minimal, and it works on a 1.1GHz MediaTek processor, 8GB of storage and 1GB of RAM. For graphics, it comes with Mali GPU. If you purchase Lava Z50, you will find the presence of these low resource hungry apps, which is exclusively designed and developed for low-end budget-friendly smartphones.

Users will be able to expand memory on board of the Nokia 1 up to 128GB, and only to 32GB on the ZTE phone. The handset is pre-loaded with optimised Google apps, like YouTube Go, which lets you download, watch, and share videos while controlling your data usage.

On the software side of things is where the phone truly shines.

Speaking of the hardware, the Lava Z50 is a typical budget smartphone. The phones will both be updated for two years, as well as having Google's apps available out of the box. This would ensure that the phone is protected from security threats and users receive the best that Google has to offer before other smartphones on the market. The company also says that the Z50 facilitates search in 10 major Indian languages including Hindi, Gujarati, and Tamil. This is the value point where Android Go gadgets will have a greater effect.

Lastly, let's consider the optics department. If you opt for the variant without the fingerprint sensor, the phone still utilises Alcatel's own "Face Key" facial recognition software.

Lava Z50 features a 5 MP rear and front camera with flash and Bokeh Mode support. Both the camera modules are accompanied by a LED flash. It has a 5-megapixel camera at the front as well as rear. This will be available at over 100,000 retail stores by mid March, 2018 in black and gold color options.

MWC also saw HMD Global announce Nokia 1, which is an Android Oreo Go edition phone along with Nokia 6 Android One edition.

We would also like to congratulate our existing partners on launching their latest flagship phones, including Samsung Galaxy S9, Sony Xperia XZ2 and XZ2 Compact, at Mobile World Congress.
