Google has been releasing Go edition versions of the popular Android apps such as Maps, Chrome, Gmail, and Google Play Store itself. Lately, the rumor mill points out that the multinational technology company has announced to unveil its first smartphone lineup with Android Oreo (Go edition) at the MWC 2018.

Currently, there's no phone running Android Oreo Go edition, but there are plans to release a handful in the near future. There's also the Android Go section to visit. For many enterprise customers, the question of which Android phones should be used is hard to answer. Phones with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of storage will still offer a high-quality experience according to Google. If you only prefer mid-range or high-end flagship devices, then Android Oreo (Go edition) won't be your cup of tea. Renders of the pebble-shaped Nokia 1 surfaced a few days ago giving us a good look at what the entry-level handset will look like. The Bharat Go phone is expected to retail at about INR 2,000, but details about the specs and features remain unknown. However, the company has not revealed the names of these upcoming smartphones. At the lower end of the spectrum will be the Nokia 1, which is expected to be an Android Go smartphone, though nothing has been confirmed as yet. So far, there's nothing much known about the kind of device Intex will add to the Go portfolio, but being an INR 2,000 smartphone, we don't expect much from it.

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. While Gartner's latest smartphone sales report shows Android remains dominant in the consumer space, with a market share of 85.9% compared to just 14% for iOS, the numbers are practically reversed in the enterprise sector. It might come with a 16-megapixel front-facing camera for better selfies.

When it comes to security, Android devices are a mixed bag - to say the least.
