If you're on a budget, can'tuse a lot of mobile data, or just like to keep things simple, a super-powered smartphone like the Galaxy S8 or Google Pixel XL doesn't make a lot of sense.

Now talking about the other announcements, Google also announced something new called Android Go.

Among the other new features introduced at the long-awaited Google I/O conference was the Google Lens initiative.

At I/O, Google has outlined some of the features in Google I/O under the security enhancements which are created to keep you, and your devices safe. Samat declined to share any carrier or manufacturing partners Google has with Android Go. With Android Go, Google is clearly aiming for the low-end consumers with low internet connectivity. All you need to do is point the in-app camera to any object and you will get all relevant information about it.

"We're excited about seeing more users come online for the first time as the price of entry level smart phones drop, Google explained on its blog, "and we want to help manufacturers continue to offer lower-cost devices that provide a great experience for these users".
