No stock experience for Samsung’s Android Go Phone

Android Go seems to be a proven intriguing OS for all smartphone companies and Samsung is the latest smartphone giant to join in.

Android Go seems to be a proven intriguing OS for all smartphone companies and Samsung is the latest smartphone giant to join in. Samsung's first gadget was spotted on GeekBench with the model number SM-J260G. Later on, it was found that the gadget would quote a Quad-Core Exynos SoC, 5-inch Super AMOLED show, alongside 1GB RAM.

In any case, while that was about equipment, we appear to have new news with respect to the genuine software inside the gadget. As revealed by Sammobile, Samsung's first Android Go cell phone won't run stock Android, as per spilled pictures of the cell phone that the organization has gotten. The devices will have the Go versions of Google's authentic applications introduced over Samsung's stock Experience UX. While that may come as a shock to some of you, it truly shouldn't. At the very first place, Android Go’s landing page never wrote that it will provide the users a stock Android.

Moreover, Samsung has been pushing hard to enhance the whole Samsung Experience. Considering all these things, Samsung’s decision to stick to its custom UI makes sense. Aside from the custom UI, the spilled pictures additionally demonstrate that Samsung is utilizing its standard Device Maintenance feature, named "Smart Manager" which came preloaded on its gadgets until 2016 for Android Go's storage management and data saving functionalities.

Also, the gadget will boast on-screen navigation keys without the infinity display. The Android version is 8.1, which is the base for Android Go gadgets. The security fix date is December 5, 2017, yet we anticipate that the gadget will dispatch with the most recent security fix. Till now, there is no data in the matter of when the gadget will dispatch and in what markets will the devices be accessible.
