Android Manufacturers are Getting Sh*ttier at Updating Phones

There are a few Go apps already available for the Android Go Oreo Edition and we believe more phones and apps will be introduced in the coming months.

All of the devices recommend by the new program are certified as meeting Google's minimum enterprise specifications for hardware, security updates and user experience.

Android Oreo (Go edition) is the version of the OS that's specially optimized for low-end hardware.

We're inspired by the success of Android across a wide range of devices, including entry-level phones which in many cases are the first and only way people get access to the internet. For many enterprise customers, the question of which Android phones should be used is hard to answer.

Google first announced work on Android Oreo (Go Edition) previous year. Nokia 1 is expected to be powered by the Snapdragon 212 processor coupled with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage. And talking about the Android Go platform, it is just that realization of those efforts!


As the name implies, it's created to point enterprise IT departments at devices that Google has deemed to be enterprise-ready.

For an Android device to be certified enterprise-ready, it must run Android 7.0 or later, be equipped with at least 2GB of RAM and 32GB of storage and be capable of providing at least 8 hours of battery life, according to Google. We'll see what OEMs have joined the fun of using Android Go, the lighter version of Android, on their new smartphones. Ltd.'s devices aren't on the list, but Google indicated more devices from manufacturers will be added later.

Phones in the 'Android Enterprise Recommended' program meet, "elevated enterprise requirements validated by Google". Phones under this programme can expected to get monthly security updates, within 90 days of release, for a minimum of three years.

Whether the new Huawei Android Go phone will come under the Honor brand is also a mystery, but given the company's positioning of the brand as the more affordable option, it's likely that some Honor devices will also be unveiled with Android Go running the show.
