Android Go New Requirements For Phones – Must Have 1GB RAM!

Android Go New Requirements Q4 2020

This year, even though we have phones with 12GB RAM such as the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra, Nubia Red Magic 5G, and so on, yet the entry-level 1GB phones are still popular. This is why Google has developed a light version of Android for them called ‘Android Go’. It simplifies the current Android to make it run smoothly on phones with 1GB or less memory.

However, it looks like even Android Go new requirements will increase over time. On July 22, according to XDA reports, Google adjusted the requirements for using the Android Go system.

A leaked document shows that starting from the fourth quarter of 2020, Android 10 devices with 2GB or even smaller memory must-have Android Go pre-installed.

Not only that, but starting with Android 11, Android devices with 512MB of memory will no longer support Google services as well.

Here’s what Google specifically said in Android Go new requirements:

  • Beginning with Android 11, devices with 512MB RAM (including upgrades) are not qualified for preloading GMS.
  • All new PRODUCTS launching with Android 11, if they have 2GB RAM or less, MUST return true for ActivityManager.isLowRamDevice() API, and launch as an Android Go device.
  • Starting in Q4 2020, all new PRODUCTS launching with Android 10, if they have 2GB RAM or less, MUST return true for ActivityManager.isLowRamDevice() API, and launch as an Android Go device.
  • Previously launched 2GB RAM devices in standard GMS configuration SHOULD NOT convert to Android Go configuration via MRs or letter upgrades. They will remain standard Android

The source explained that Google’s approach is to allow Android Go running more smoothly on 2GB or 1GB memory devices. This ensures the most basic Android experience.
