A leaked document suggests Google may make Android Go a requirement for all new low-end phones

According to an unpublished Google document obtained by XDA Developers, Google plans to require all the new devices with 2GB of RAM or less to install Android Go Edition starting from the fourth quarter of this year in order to enhance the user experience of the Andriod system.

Android Go is a system designed by Google to enhance the user experience on low-end mobile phones by making simplifications and improvements to the system. The existing models on the market can maintain the current version of Android, while it implies that all new phones must have at least 3GB of RAM if the manufacturer wishes to install “standard” Android 11 of their upcoming devices.

Since it is a leaked document that has not been confirmed by Google yet, we are not sure if Google decides to make the mentioned changes or not at this moment.
