If you are going to purchase an entry-level smartphone this year and onward, your best bet will be an Android Go phone. From the way things are going, consumers will be spoilt for choice as to which Android Go device to purchase. News has it that the upcoming Huawei Y5 Lite (2018) will also launch under the program.
The Huawei Y5 Lite (2018) is most definitely the same device as the Huawei Y3 (2018) seen at the FCC yesterday. The Y3 (2017) is known as the Y5 Lite (2017) in Latin America, so it makes sense that Huawei will keep to the naming scheme this year too.
The phone is said to have an 854 x 480 display, 1GB of RAM and 8GB of storage. It also has a dedicated MicroSD card slot and is powered by a MediaTek MT6737m processor. The rest of the specs are still a secret, so also is the launch date and price.
Android Go (Oreo Edition) comes with specially made versions of Google apps with the “Go” suffix. For other popular apps like Facebook, Twitter, Skype, Shazam and Messenger there are “Lite” versions that should work fine with the limited resources available.
