Android Oreo Go edition
The Nokia 2.1 runs on Google’s Android 8.1 Oreo Go edition. The Go edition has been especially created for phones that have 1GB RAM or less. The apps that are pre-loaded take up less of your memory and they have been tweaked so that they have a faster performance, with reduced lag.
There are no duplicated apps or unnecessary apps but you do get the Google Assistant Go edition and the Chrome Data Saver, which can save up to 60% of your data usage. This phone will stay safe with regular security updates and it is Android P ready, a guarantee that is very exciting indeed.
If your favourite app isn’t pre-loaded, then you can simply visit the Play Store and download it.
