Android Oreo Go edition for budget devices

A variant of this update is now going to be running on devices that feature comprehensively weaker hardware and fewer levels of storage and optimize its applications accordingly.

“Android Oreo devices with 512MB to 1GB of memory will come with the all the Go optimizations. We enhanced Android Oreo (Go edition) for speed and reliability on entry-level devices, which means the average app is now 15 percent faster on devices running Android Oreo (Go edition). There are many of these kinds of optimizations—and they really add up. If all entry level Android devices launched apps 15 percent faster, that would save the world a cumulative one million hours of time—every day!

It’s common for entry level devices to have very little storage space available once you account for the size of the OS and the preinstalled apps. This can be frustrating for people who want more space for their music, apps, and photos. So, we’ve optimized Android Oreo (Go edition) and enhanced our preinstalled Google apps to take up 50 percent less space. The net result is that we’ve doubled the amount of available storage on entry-level devices.”

According to Google, Android Oreo (Go edition)’s speed and reliability on entry-level devices will become enhanced, because an average app should run 15 percent faster on devices which are running this OS. Android Oreo (Go edition) and apps that come pre-installed on it and will take 50 percent less space than the regular Android Oreo operating system.

So if a budget smartphone is running 8GB of internal storage, you should be able to download and install a variety of applications for the device and if the phone comes with expandable storage, then more power to you.

Android Oreo (Go edition)-running phones will be released in regions that have a smaller GDP compared to the rest of the countries. In this way, consumers who cannot buy expensive or even mid-range devices can purchase entry-level phones and enjoy the latest of what Google has to offer.
