“The Xiaomi Redmi Go is a budget smartphone that will run the stripped down Android Go software”

Xiaomi’s latest budget smartphone, the Redmi Go, will be launched at an event tomorrow in India. This is the first smartphone from Xiaomi to run the Android Go edition software, hence the ‘Go’ in the name. Google developed the Go version of Android Oreo for smartphones with less RAM and storage. It is a stripped down version of Android O that is meant to run without any lag on low-end budget devices.

The Redmi Go is a budget phone and we already know all about it thanks to an official announcement from Xiaomi. The phone was announced late January, via a Twitter post. However, there will be an official launch tomorrow, where the pricing and availability will be revealed. Online retailer Flipkart has launched a page for the phone as well, which indicates that the phone would exclusive to the seller.

The page has revealed some details of the phone, such as the version of Android Go, camera features and others. Out of the box, the Redmi Go will support 20 Indian languages. It will also allow users to converse with the Google Assistant in Hindi, which is nice. The phone camera will feature auto-HDR and 11 scene modes. As of now, that’s all the page reveals, but we already know the hardware specifications of the phone. 

The Redmi Go will come with a 5-inch HD display with large bezels. It is powered by a Snapdragon 427 chipset, which is a quad-core processor clocked at 1.4GHz. The chipset is paired with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of onboard storage. A microSD card slot is available for storage expansion up to 128GB.

The device gets a single rear camera with an 8-megapixel resolution and a 5-megapixel camera up front for selfies. There is no fingerprint sensor on the phone, which means that you will have to rely on password unlock. A 3,000mAh battery keeps the lights on. For connectivity, there’s Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.1 and GPS. The phone will be available in Black or Blue colour options.
