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.

I always buy my phones from eBay with a $100 limit. Most recently a LeEco Pro 3 (like new, boxed, Snapdragon 821, 4GB). Great on paper compared to these Android Go phones, but LeEco went bust and the phone runs Android 6 (although LeEco fans on XDA have released a buggy 8.1). I would hope the Android Go phones will get better long term support.
