Google announced Android 12 Go Edition for ultra-budget smartphones

Google announced Android 12 Go Edition for ultra-budget smartphones
15 December 2021

Since 2017, Google has started releasing a light version of Android for low-cost smartphones with weak technical characteristics. This version (Android Go Edition) works quickly due to the reduced number of functions and software optimization. Application developers can release separate versions for the Android Go Edition to ensure a smoother experience. As a result, according to Google, the number of daily active users of Android Go has already reached 200 million.

Now let’s talk in more detail about what became known about Android 12 Go Edition:

  • Google has done a great job of increasing the interface speed and has 30% faster application launch times compared to Android 11 Go Edition.
