Google a couple of weeks ago announced the Go edition of its latest flavour of Android-Android 9.0 Go edition, so it is only reasonable to expect it to make its first debut in a smartphone. And while we expected the first Android Go Pie device to be released for the developing countries which are its main target, the device is, however, making it first to the States.
Gizchina News of the week
Welcome the Blu Vivo Go – Blu’s latest entry-level smartphone, its first Android Go device, and incidentally the first ever Android 9 Pie Go smartphone. Unlike most Android Go devices, the number Blu Vivo Go boasts of a number of features never seen before on an Android Go device – including a rear fingerprint scanner, and ultimately three cameras (two 8MP rear shooters and a 0.3MP front-facing snapper).
At $89.99, Blu is offering you a device with a large 6-inch curved glass screen with a 720×1440 display resolution and is powered by a 1.5GHz Octa-core MediaTek MT6739 chipset coupled with 1GB RAM and 16GB of storage. The deive is powered by a 2,600mAH battery, is dual SIM enabled, and is compatible with 4G LTE networks from AT&T and T-Mobile in the U.S.
The device will go on sale later in November via Amazon.com at about $90.
