The announcement comes just days after Google officially announced the Android 10 Go Edition update earlier this week. Prior to that, earlier this month, Google started rolling out the latest Android 10 update for its own smartphones.
Android 10 (Go edition) lets user switch between apps 10% faster, thanks to better memory-efficieny. It also has a new form of encryption, built by Google for entry-level smartphones, called Adiantum that can run without specialized hardware, without compromising the software performance.
