LG V30 and G6 are getting into the Android Enterprise Recommended program

Google Certifies Android for the Enterprise

"Adding this distinction to our suite of enterprise-level capabilities, like LG GATE, further elevates our premium smartphones for business users and increases confidence for discerning IT decision makers".

Android One is a value program created to give customers a baseline of what to expect out of certain budget devices, while Android Oreo (Go Edition) is a tweaked version of Android that's made from the ground up, including optimized apps, to run well on low-end devices with no more than 1GB of RAM. Google said Android smartphones should deliver on these specifications in order to ensure enterprises can handle the most challenging business environments. For the enterprise market, all that is set to change as Google launches its new 'Android Enterprise Recommended' programme.

All of the devices recommend by the new program are certified as meeting Google's minimum enterprise specifications for hardware, security updates and user experience.

The point of the program isn't to exclude other devices from enterprise consideration, though.

However, Google has suggested that Samsung could win its approval in the future, noting that "you can expect more Android Enterprise Recommended devices to be added in the coming weeks and months". "Throughout 2018, we will also be applying the Android Enterprise Recommended framework to additional partner types, including OEMs of "dedicated" and rugged devices, mobile carriers, enterprise mobility management (EMM) providers and systems integrators", Google director of Android Enterprise, David Still wrote in a company blog post announcing the program.

Oddly enough, smartphone leader Samsung Electronics Co. The full list includes all of the minimum app and hardware specifications required to be included in the program.

These include the BlackBerry KEYone, BlackBerry Motion, Nokia 8, LG V30, LG G6 and several Huawei, Motorola and Sony phones.

The program also requires that within 90 days of Google releasing them manufacturers make security updates available for at least three years.
