Xiaomi has announced its first ever Android Go smartphone, Redmi Go. The newly introduced budget friendly smartphone is made specifically for people with limited internet activity and connectivity. Redmi Go comes with entry level specs and will be running on stripped-down version of Android called Android 8.1 Oreo Go Edition.

The phone will also come with pre-loaded trimmed apps (like YouTube Go and Gmail Go) to make them lighter and capable of running smoothly on this low-end smartphone. These stripped-down apps will help the users to save decent amount of data and space.
Not much has been shared by the company about the newly introduced Redmi Go. But, as per some sources, Redmi Go is built atop Snapdragon 425 processor and powered by a 3,000 mAh battery, which is quite impressive for this price range! Xiaomi always does something like this to surpass the competitors and pull the potential buyers towards its devices! In August 2018, Samsung also launched their first Android Go smartphone, Galaxy J2 Core, which has a 2,600 mAh battery, 400 mAh less than what we get in Redmi Go!
Redmi Go features a 5-inch 720p display, an 8 MP rear camera with LED flash and a 5 MP front camera with no flash. It will come with 1 GB of RAM and 8 GB of internal Storage. The storage can be expanded via the microSD card. However, as of now, the details about the expansion i.e., as to how much the storage of the device can be expanded remains unknown!
Xiaomi’s latest device doesn’t really come with anything exciting like face unlock feature, even the display is not that good! The back side of this smartphone looks entirely boring and users might want to use a back-cover to make it look good!
As the phone won’t be able to hold up to user’s regular and heavy usage like playing big games, it can surely be used as a 2nd phone which we need for our less used phone number or may be for some other purposes which doesn’t require much resources on-board.
The company doesn’t have plans of launching this low-end smartphone in USA anytime soon. But, it is expected to be launched soon in Europe with a price tag of about 80 Euros (~ $91.50 USD).
