First Alcatel phone with Android Oreo Go edition launched.

TCL Communication has launched its first Alcatel smartphone powered by Android Oreo Go edition, targeting the value segment of the market.

The Alcatel 1X, part of the Alcatel 1 series, was launched

at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, together with the Alcatel 5 and 3.

With the Android Oreo Go edition, applications and features are

optimised to be smaller in size, meaning less storage requirements and offering

Alcatel 1X customers more storage space out of the box. Customers still have access

to the Google Play Store.

"We are honoured to offer our first

smartphone running Android Oreo (Go edition) to our customers throughout the

world, " said Christophe Corsi, regional

director, Alcatel Middle East. "Our

vision is for every smartphone user in the world to have access to an amazing

Android experience, and the introduction of our Alcatel 1X powered by Android

Oreo (Go edition) now gives them the opportunity to own one of the best value

Alcatel smartphones ever. "

The Alcatel 1X will feature a new suite of pre-installed

Google apps designed for less demand on storage, and efficient data use. This

includes the brand-new Google Go, Files Go, Google Maps Go, YouTube Go and

Gmail Go, as well as performance optimisations to Chrome, Google Play and

Gboard. It will also feature the Google Assistant for Android (Go edition),

enabling entry-level smartphone customers to experience the convenience of the

Google Assistant.

"Android 's mission has always been to bring

the power of computing to everyone, and part of that is ensuring a great

experience across the broadest range of devices, " said

Sagar Kamdar, director of Product, Android. "Android

Oreo (Go edition) is specifically optimised to bring the magic of Google and

Android to smartphones with limited memory and processing power. We 're excited to see TCL Communication

launch one of the first devices powered by Android Oreo (Go edition) in the

Alcatel 1X. "
