The Android Oreo Go Edition is designed to run on lower specification devices and it includes Android 8.1.
“We are excited to implement Android Oreo (Go edition) within the Qualcomm Snapdragon mobile platform family as it will enable consumers around the world to experience a more robust operating system for lower cost smartphones,” said Nancy Fares, vice president of product management, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. “Android Oreo (Go edition) delivers an optimized Android user experience key for emerging regions where lower bill of materials costs are especially attractive, as well as in established regions for pre-paid and lifeline uses.”
Android Oreo (Go edition) ships with a rebuilt set of Google’s most popular apps that were designed from the ground up to address local needs, plus a tuned version of Google Play that allows users to download any app, but also highlights apps designed to work best on smartphones with 1 GB or less of memory. In addition, Android Oreo (Go edition) includes features to control and monitor data usage, plus the same security improvements that Google launched with Android Oreo. When paired with a Snapdragon mobile platform, consumers will benefit from new experiences not seen before from smartphones in this range.
