Last year during I/O 2017, Google unveiled a lighter version of the Android operating system called Android Go. It’s built for lower-end devices such as those with 512MB or 1GB of RAM and slower processors in order to deliver a smoother and improved experience over standard Android. Then, it wasn’t known when we could see the first devices running the OS hit the market, but as per a blog post, it looks like that time will begin next week.

According to Google, the first Android Go devices will land next week during MWC 2018. It isn’t yet known who will be making the phones, but we’ll learn more soon. It is said, however, that the device(s) will launch soon after MWC wraps up.

We’ll, of course, let you know of the first wave of devices running Android Go when they land.
