Micromax Spark Go is the newest addition to the Indian smartphone maker’s budget Spark series. The company launched the smartphone at the ongoing India Mobile Congress in partnership with Reliance Jio, the leading 4G network in the country. The Spark Go is aimed to make 4G VoLTE experience available to mass audience, the company said during the launch.

“With the growing preference of e-commerce in India, today’s discerning online consumer is always on the look-out for a multitude of options. Understanding these evolving needs and preferences of our audience, we are very excited to launch our latest offering – the Micromax Spark Go. Running on Android Go, it has been built and developed with an aim of eliminating the two biggest concerns users face today with affordable smartphones – that of storage and performance,” Vikas Jain, Co-Founder, Micromax Informatics Ltd. said in a released statement.

Micromax Spark Go: Price and Specifications

The Micromax Spark Go features a 5-inch display and is powered by a quad-core processor. The smartphone comes with 1GB of RAM and 8GB internal storage with option to further expand it up to 32GB via SD card slot.

The Spark Go, as the name implies, is an Android Go edition and it runs the latest version of Android Oreo. Google has already confirmed that all Android Go devices running Oreo will be updated to Android Pie Go by the end of this year. The advantage of an Android Go edition is lower memory utilization out of the box and better integration with core Google services like mail, maps, assistant and other services.

In terms of camera, Micromax Spark Go features a 5-megapixel rear camera with flash and a 2-megapixel selfie shooter with flash. Micromax is trying to compensate for the lower resolution front camera with dedicated LED flash, which will come handy in low-light scenario. It has a non-hybrid SIM slot and it support 4G VoLTE, making it among the cheapest devices to support the network.
