Mobile World Congress is happening this week, and we're slowly getting a better picture of what Google's new "Android Go" initiative will look like. Android Go is a special configuration of Android 8.1 (with a selection of special "Go" apps) that targets low-end devices with 1GB of RAM or less.

MWC has seen a ton of manufacturers sign up for the program and announce phones shipping with the Go config, so it's time for a hardware roundup.

We often tend to get tunnel vision and focus on expensive flagships, so here's a roundup of upcoming 100 dollar Android Go phones. These are neat little phones for a decent price.

My prediction:

one or two updates and these phones are going to be unusable.

I switched from Win10 mobile running on Snapdragon 400 series cpu to a Nexus 5x running on a Snapdragon 808. The Win10 mobile phone was and still is running circles around Android 8.1.
