Google announced earlier in the year that it had plans to expand the reach of Android. Android Go would make this a possibility by being an OS that could run on more basic hardware, but still giving users a similar experience. Today, ZTE has made its Android Go handset, the Tempo Go, available to those in the United States.
The Tempo Go is priced at $79.99 and is available directly from ZTE's website. The handset has a 5-inch display with a resolution of 480 x 854 and is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 processor and 1GB of RAM. The device has 8GB of internal storage with room for expansion up to 32GB via a microSD slot. For those that like to take pictures, the unit packs a 5MP rear camera and a 2MP front-facing camera. As for battery life, it has a 2,200mAh battery that is being rated at 12 hours of talk time and 220 hours of standby time.
While the specifications are quite meager when compared to most smartphones nowadays, Android Go has been optimized for this kind of hardware, and it should function better when compared to standard Android running on the same kind of specifications.
