Named Bharat Go, the smartphone will be the best-in-class mobility device and an optimised entry-level Android smartphone, the company said in a statement.
Android Oreo (Go) is essentially made for entry-level Android smartphones with less than 1 GB RAM and hence uses less storage space, less memory and still runs smoothly.
With launching the lightweight Android Oreo (Go Edition) in India, Google has optimised its OS platform, first-party apps and Play Store to improve the capabilities of entry-level smartphones.
Originally announced at Google I/O 2017 annual developer conference, this OS is a toned down version of the latest Android Oreo OS which is currently present in high-end devices.
The new OS and pre-installed apps have been optimised to take up 50 percent less space that would double the amount of available storage on entry-level devices, the company earlier said.
