HMD Global has announced that the the Nokia 1 smartphone running on Android Oreo (Go edition) is now available to buy from Cell C, MTN and Vodacom from R999.00.
Tailored to devices with 1GB RAM or less, Android Oreo (Go edition) comes with a new range of apps from Google designed to run faster while consuming less data. Optimised to be smooth and fast, these include Google Go – a web search app, Google Maps Go, YouTube Go and Google Assistant for Android (Go edition), to quickly send messages, make calls, set alarms and do more, simply by using your voice.
With fewer pre-installed and much lighter apps on Android Oreo (Go edition), you get 2x more available storage out of the box compared with Android Nougat. All Nokia smartphones run a native version of Android, meaning there are no UI changes or unnecessary apps pre-installed.
