The highlight of the new Micromax smartphone remains the OS. Google’s Android Oreo (Go Edition) is optimized to run smoothly on low-end smartphones with the most basic of features. The optimizations include special preloaded apps like Gmail Go, Maps Go, Files Go, Chrome, YouTube Go, Assistant Go, Play Store, and GBoard.
“Android Oreo (Go Edition) is a compelling proposition for the mobile first economy like India. We are proud to announce the launch of Bharat GO, a smartphone powered by the Android Oreo (Go Edition) today,” Shubhodip Pal, Chief Marketing and Commercial Officer, Micromax said.
