At MWC, ZTE promised that its Tempo Go would be the first product to carry Android Oreo (Go Edition) to the States. But, very well, stuff happened, and the company’s had a good deal bigger points to offer with the intervening months. Alcatel, however, is on the case with the 1X.
TCL introduced this early morning that the funds product will be hitting Amazon some time subsequent, priced at an particularly very affordable $100, unlocked. It will also be arriving at Ideal Get and Walmart quickly soon after, no question getting benefit of the reality that it’s the only Android Go handset obtainable in the U.S. for the time remaining.
The specs are unsurprisingly uninspiring. There is a 960 x 480 five.three-inch monitor, a MediaTek chip and 1GB or RAM. The fantastic information, however, is that the new, light-weight model of Google’s mobile functioning process is created for specifically these hardware restraints, which indicates you ought to get a a lot smoother Android working experience than you would on a equally-speced handset functioning the complete OS.
Whilst the functioning process is very well positioned to get a foothold in developing countries, Google was quick to issue out that it was not restricting Android Go’s availability to these elements of the entire world. But even though a range of makers have signed on, none appeared too keen to launch the handsets in the States — very well, aside from ZTE, but we all know how that went.
A further Android Go gadgets is on the way as very well, with HMD bringing the Nokia 2.1 to the States in July.
