ZTE debuts Android Go handset for the United States, priced at $79.99

30 March 2018

There were several smartphones announced at MWC that came with Android Go installed, but the first that was announced for the United States was the Tempo Go, a new smartphone from ZTE.

The main selling point is the Android Oreo (Go edition) software, which basically ensures the Tempo Go runs the freshest, sweetest OS flavor with no performance compromises, storage concerns or security vulnerabilities.

Drilling into the specs, it is powered by a Snapdragon 210 chipset and 1GB of RAM, and the five-inch display pushes a 854 x 480 resolution. That's a pretty low-end package, but with Android Go, it should be enough for most people.

The Tempo Go is priced at $79.99 and is available directly from ZTE's website.

Even with its budget specs, you'll find a 3.5mm headphone jack, and a microSD slot to greatly extend its paltry 8GB of built-in storage. A 5MP camera is found on the back of the device, while you'll be staring at a 2MP camera for selfies. It has a 5 MP rear-facing camera and a 2 MP front-facing camera, with a 2200 mAh battery.

Google has optimized Android Go to better perform on such hardware, which means that performance shouldn't be too embarrassing in everyday use. If interested, you can head to the ZTE source link below and make your purchase.
