Qualcomm announces support for Android Oreo (Go Edition)

Qualcomm has announced support for Google’s new Android Oreo (Go Edition) platform. The company will be working alongside Google to improve the experience on these devices, many of which will have 1GB or less RAM.

Qualcomm didn’t really say anything about what it is doing in this partnership and merely listed off what Google has done with Android Oreo (Go Edition). Which, as we learned yesterday, involves having a streamlined version of the OS designed for low-end hardware with low RAM and storage space, lightweight version of Google apps, and a version of Play Store that highlights optimized apps.

Android Oreo (Go Edition) devices are expected to ship in early 2018.
