Lava Z50 android go smartphone launched: Coming to India mid-march

The Android go version of phones are seemingly the centre point of the ongoing Mobile World Congress 2018. "We're excited to see Airtel take a leading role in that effort through introducing a range of devices powered by Android Oreo (Go edition)". The Android Go phone already appears on the company's official United States website, but it's listed as Sold Out for the time being. "Finally, the overall quality of the apps that are on Android Go, which are truly meant for the next one billion users", Samat said on the rationale behind Android Oreo Go edition. Now many of you outside of Europe heard of General Mobile, quite probably, though this company is quite popular in some regions, especially within Europe's borders.

Here at htxt.africa we love cheap, entry-level smartphones but they have a problem.

In the decade since the launch of Android, we have achieved incredible things due to the open nature of the platform and the vibrant ecosystem of partners.

The G3 runs on 4GB of Ram (good enough for running multiple apps at once) and comes with facial recognition. The 5MP rear camera comes with panorama mode, night mode, and the pro mode, the front camera is also a 5MP camera and has face detection to offer the enhancements. These apps use less memory, data and processing power than their full-fat equivalents, allowing them to running more smoothly on a phone with less power. However, there is a microSD card slot here if you need to add more. A 3.5mm headphone jack is also included here, it is placed on the top of the device, while the phone's loudspeaker and charging port lie on the bottom. You may also want to wait a few more weeks or months because we're expecting more OEMs will make their own related announcements. This device is fueled by the Snapdragon 435 64-bit octa-core processor, which is Qualcomm's entry-level chip.

It's tiny, coming with a 4.5-inch display with the same 854 x 480 resolution and features a colorful (red or blue) plastic back. This version of Android has been optimized to provide a smooth experience on low-end handsets with less than 1GB of RAM.

Google also recommends certain third-party apps as being suitable for Android Go. It looked a little garish to our eye when we got a sneak peak at the phones in Barcelona, but you might think it's rather jazzy. Android Oreo (Go edition) comes with new apps reimagined for the next generation of users, such as YouTube Go - a new app for users to watch, download, and share videos while controlling their data. There is a fingerprint sensor placed at the rear end. Pricing and availability details are unknown at the moment. It can still answer your questions, set timers for you and - yes - crack terrible jokes, but now on phones with 1GB of memory or less.
