It’s been five years since Google introduced Android Go. In fact, this is a lite version of the green robot operating system for affordable devices; with a small amount of RAM and inefficient amount of memory. Android Go takes up less space than stock Android, and stripped-down versions of key Google apps have been released specifically for this version.
Several devices came out with the stripped-down Android on board, but it did not gain much popularity. However, Xiaomi decided to try to repeat the experience of Google and is preparing to release MIUI Go. Already from the name, it is clear that this is a kind of Android Go, but in the Chinese style.
MIUI Go targets budget models with a small amount of RAM and is built, presumably, based on Android 11 Go Edition. Those. in fact, the principle is the same as in the case of the regular MIUI – Android is taken as the basis, on top of which a proprietary shell will be rolled. MIUI Go should also include a suite of lightweight apps from Google, including YouTube Go, Gmail Go, and Google Maps Go. They take up little space, making them ideal for use on inexpensive devices. Key opportunities in the field. They just left only the most important functions here and simplified the design.
MIUI Go launched for budget smartphones with small RAM and storage
The first MIUI Go smartphone is expected to be the POCO C40, which will also be the company’s first device with a JLQ branded chip. How successful such a combination will be is a big question. In any case, it is unlikely that MIUI Go would be released for one smartphone model, which means that there should be a lot of such smartphones.
At the end of last year, Xiaomi held a major new product launch event. The highlight of the program, of course, was the flagship smartphones Xiaomi 12 and 12 Pro. However, other innovations also saw the light. One of them is the MIUI 13 and its version for MIUI 13 Pad tablets.
Xiaomi CEO and co-founder Lei Jun said that the fresh Android skin will stand out with improved privacy and enhanced security. It will also enable tighter integration between various devices in the Xiaomi ecosystem; including smartphones, tablets, TVs, smart wearables, and other XiaoAI voice assistant products.
The latest MIUI 13 debuted a branded three-step verification of the identity of the owner of the device. It includes facial recognition, which is the basic level, reading of user ID watermarks; as well as the so-called “e-fraud protection”. The latter feature includes a list of devices and web resources that can distribute malware; as well as an extensive list of unreliable phone numbers from which you should be careful when accepting calls.
