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.

Two considerations

first one: before Android Go some manufacturers try to offer sub 100$ phones with some good specs (1024x600 display, and so on). Now with Android Go hardware makers have a good excuse to put out lame hardware (854x480 screen???) and the end user will not have a better experience than before with a 100$ phone
second one: I want android go on my high end phone, just to have more speed, because I see that features are more or less the same!
