Google's advisory on Android smartphones below 2 GB RAM shouldn't be ignored
Google has also stated that the smartphones must have at least 16GB of internal storage to support the new Android versions
Google has announced it will stop its support for Android smartphones having only 1GB RAM.
With the new Android 13 version, the company has made changes to Google Mobile Services (GMS) compatibility and has made it clear that Android phones must now have at least 2GB of RAM, sources reported.
Earlier, the tech giant had introduced a lite version of the Android mobile operating system- Android Go, specifically designed for ultra-budget smartphones.
It ran on smartphones with less than 2 GB of RAM. However, now Google has decided to make changes in the lite version.
The report mentions that Google has decided to kill it because 1GB of RAM is not enough to support the apps of Android Go.
Most of the new budget phones now come with RAM of 2GB or more, so that they can easily run the lightweight Android apps of the Go platform on the device.
Google has also stated that the smartphones must have at least 16GB of internal storage to support the new Android versions.
