Huawei's First Android Oreo (Go Edition) Smartphone is Here


A few days ago, it was ASUS that launched its first ever Android Go Edition smartphone in the international tech scene with the device being called ZenFone Live L1. If you would like to know more about this phone, you can visit this link here. Today, another smartphone giant is joining the party in releasing its own version of Android Go device, meet the Huawei Y3 2018.

Android Go is a super lightweight and entry level-optimized version of the latest Android Oreo mobile operating system. Google and these phone makers are collaborating to produce Android Go devices with either 512MB or 1GB RAM right out of the box, giving the latest Android experience to a wider consumer base.

As already mentioned above, the Y3 2018 handset is an entry-level phone bearing a 1GB RAM with a quad-core MediaTek chip working side by side. The internal storage is pretty basic as well coming in at just 8GB, and we suppose this should be able to handle microSD card for additional space purposes.

As for the camera offerings, the Huawei Y3 2018 sports 8MP on the rear and 2MP on the front panel. Then it still has the usual connectivity functions such as the WiFi, Bluetooth, and GPS. Thankfully, there is still 4G LTE support for a faster mobile internet experience.

Huawei Y3 2018 specs:
  • 5-inch FWVGA display
  • 854 x 480 resolution
  • quad-core MediaTek MT6737M processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 8GB internal storage
  • Support microSD card
  • 8MP rear camera
  • 2MP front camera
  • Android Oreo (Go Edition)
  • WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS
  • 4G LTE
  • 9.45mm thick
  • 180 grams
  • 2280mAh battery
We don't know yet if Huawei intends to bring this device to the Philippines as well, even its official pricing has yet to be announced. But we expect this phone to bear less than $100 price sticker.
