Android Go, or Android Oreo, released at Google I/O last year was Google’s response to the emerging markets. It’s essentially a light Android operating system with Google applications. It can run on smartphones with only 512MB of RAM, though the RAM of almost all cellphones on the market is currently above 1GB.
Since then, many phone manufacturers have launched Android Go phones, such as Nokia, Xiaomi, ZTE and so on.
Although the specs of these phones are not impressive, but with the support of Android Go, the user experience is not bad, and the price is extremely low. So far, Android Go is only available on smartphones that cost less than $100.
Recently, Huawei released the Y3 2018 version, the first of Huawei Android Go smartphone. It is expected that its specs, such as the MTK6737 processor, 1 GB of RAM and 8 GB of inbuilt storage would not likely attract much attention.
As an entry-level phone, Huawei Y3 2018 does not have a full screen design, instead it has a 5-inch screen with 854×480 resolution, 2280 mAh built-in battery and an 8MP rear camera.
The price of Huawei Y3 2018 has not yet been announced, but there is no doubt that it would be a budget phone costing around 1,000 yuan ($157).
