While the Nokia 1 is priced at $85, the ZTE Temp Go price is set to $79.99 and will be available in grey color model only. For imaging, the Micromax Android Go smartphone will arrive with a 5MP selfie camera and a 5MP rear camera with LED flash as well. Despite each phone representing different price and performance levels, all come with 18:9 aspect ratio displays.

The Alcatel 3V gets an even bigger 6-inch panel with full HD+ resolution and like the 3X, you also get a dual-lens camera on the back, which the standard Alcatel 3 misses out. It has a 5-megapixel rear camera sensor and a 2-megapixel front camera sensor. Storage is also expandable up to 128GB. Select variants of the 1X will come with new Alcatel features like Face Key facial recognition and a fingerprint sensor, and all will include the Social Mode photo options for the camera.

The smartphone is already on sale in the US.

The ZTE Tempo Go is available now for $79.99.

Finance Minister Arun Jaitley's Briefing On Fugitive Economic Offenders Bill: Highlights
Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley said, "The law will be applicable where the offences involve more than Rs 100 crore". He further said that NFRA's jurisdiction would extend to listed companies and large-scale unlisted companies.

The partnership marks one of the firm's main initiatives of 2018, with a series of additional product announcement to be made throughout the year. These smartphones with basic specs will also come pre-loaded with compatible apps, including MyAirtel App, Airtel TV and Wynk Music.

Newly launched phones which will be built on Google's Android Oreo (Go edition) operating system to deliver better user experience, and cater for a wide range of consumer groups across a diverse range of global markets. Lava has launched its Android Go smartphone called Z50 that happens to be the first Android Go phone launched in India. Micromax, however, has delayed the launch of the smartphone.

The complete specifications of the Lava Z50 have yet to be detailed by the company, with details like battery capacity, dimensions, weight, and maximum capacity of microSD card supported missing from its press release. The screen on the smartphone 5.7 inch HD+ display. And the whole thing runs on a quad-core MediaTek MT6737M. It comes with 8GBof internal storage. The smartphone will be available starting next month. It will be bundled with Airtel offers including a Rs 2,000 cashback.

It looks like Alcatel came to MWC 2018 with a massive arsenal of phones and tablets; promising something for nearly every consumer in its product range. They're first-party devices at least in name and branding, while Android One will offer Pixel-like functionality from third-party manufacturers. This essentially means developers can now deeply integrate their applications with Google Assistant. For instance, users can simply ask Assistant to make an Uber booking.
