HMD is planning a busy 2018 with a flurry of smartphones being lined up for launch, starting with the upcoming MWC 2018 event. The company hasn't announced the pricing yet, so we will need to wait slightly longer for the final price. The smartphone named GM8 features a 5.7-inch HD+ display, 3GB or 4GB of RAM, 32GB or 64GB of storage and a Snapdragon 435 chipset.

The device comes with a 4.5-inch FWVGA LCD display and has 1GB of RAM along with 8GB of onboard internal storage. For graphics, it comes with Mali GPU.

Among Indian smartphone makers, Micromax too has shown interest in Android Go. Thankfully the storage can be expanded externally up to 128GB through its microSD card slot. This is largely due to Android Go's implementation that optimizes the phone to use lesser RAM and lesser storage space.

On the software side of things is where the phone truly shines. Google had already installed a few apps and games for us to check out and appreciate the Go edition of Android Oreo. All three look like great options, and with Android One on board, we can expect upgrades to Android P and beyond, as well as guaranteed monthly security updates.

Juho Sarvikas, HMD's chief product officer, has confirmed the availability of the Nokia 6 (2018) smartphone in the USA market in a recent interview. The company also says that the Z50 facilitates search in 10 major Indian languages including Hindi, Gujarati, and Tamil. While Samsung has stolen headlines, Google still has a rather large presence at the event thanks to its Android One and Android Go initiative.

He also pointed out that Google will not market these phones as Android Go phones as such, and instead sees them more as Android Oreo Go Edition.

Lastly, let's consider the optics department.

Not anymore, though. Since most of Assistant's work happens in the cloud, it functioned just as well on this $85 phone as it does on my Pixel 2 XL. For selfies, it comes with a 2 Megapixel front camera.

On the official Alcatel 1X page, the company notes that "specs & color may vary in different countries" because, well, there are multiple variants of the 1X. The phones are primarily for Africa, but they will be available in select other markets.

"Bharti Airtel with its bundled devices might see an uptick in ultra low smartphone segment ($30-40) as now the segment contributes to less than 5% of total smartphone market, but Reliance with Jio featurephone and anticipated Google Go smartphone will target both set of users in this segment", added Tarun Pathak, associate director at Counterpoint Research.
