To bring Android devices even to lower price points, while remaining still useable, Google introduced Android (GO edition) last year. A version of, then, Android Oreo optimized for low end hardware, that takes less memory and has specially made lightweight “GO” apps of popular Google services.
Google recently announced Android 9 Pie, so it was logically to expect a soon announcement of the GO edition of the new version of Android too. That happened this week when Google officially unveiled Android 9 Pie (GO edition). The new version comes with some improvements with the most important being:
Up to an additional 500MB of storage available out of the box
Faster device boot times
Top-of-the-line security features like verified boot
A accessible dashboard for tracking and monitoring data consumption
