The custom version of Nokia 2.1, Nokia 2 V has been launched officially in USA by Verizon. Nokia 2 V runs on Android Go and it is among few of such devices that are launched in USA. The main market of Android Go devices is considered to be in China and India. These devices offer low-end specs at affordable prices to those users who have limited internet activity and connectivity.
Nokia 2 V Prepaid gets the stripped down version of Android Oreo called Android Oreo Go Edition.

It seems like there’s a market untapped that companies are trying to explore! A few days back Xiaomi introduced its first Android Go smartphone, Redmi Go, in India. Before that, Samsung also launched its Android Go phone, Galaxy J2 Core and few other companies did the same as well!
