Android 9 Pie may have gotten the headlines, but Google has also announced that its latest pastry-named OS is coming to its Android Go line with Android 9 Pie (Go edition).

The biggest change in Android 9 Pie (Go edition) is increased storage. According to Google’s blog post, the operating system for Android 9 Pie (Go edition) takes up less space on a device, giving users up to 500MB of additional storage out of the box compared to previous versions of Android Go.

Additionally, Google is promising faster device boot times, better security features (including verified boot), and a new dashboard for tracking and monitoring data usage, similar to what’s already offered on the full version of Android.

The first phones with Pie (Go edition) should hit stores later this fall.
