The first Android Go smartphone launched in the US goes on sale for $80
Unveiled back in February at Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2018, ZTE's first Android Go smartphone, the Tempo Go is now available for purchase in the United States. Apparently, this is also the first Android Go smartphone to be released in the US.

Customers can grab this affordable handset for just $80, which quite a steal considering it comes with Android Oreo. Well, a lighter version that's been specifically optimized to work on smartphones with 1GB RAM or lower.

Specs-wise, ZTE Tempo Go is far from being impressive. The phone is equipped with a 1.1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 processor, 1GB Ram, and 8GB expandable storage. Also, it sports a 5-inch display with FWVGA (480 x 854 pixels) resolution, a 5-megapixel rear camera and a secondary 2-megapixel camera in the front for selfies.

ZTE's entry-level phone is powered by a 2,200 mAh battery that promises to offer up to 12 hours of talk time or 220 hours of standby time. It also offers decent connectivity features such as Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and even LTE support. If you plan on getting one and use it on a certain network, you should check with your carrier since the ZTE Tempo Go supports both GSM and CDMA bands.
