Xiaomi’s sub-brand Redmi has just launched the Redmi Go smartphone which is the company’s first phone running on Android Go platform. As with most of the other Android Go phones, the Redmi Go is also an entry-level phone with specs to match.
The Redmi Go comes with a small (well, at least by today’s standard) 5″ HD display with 720p resolution. It is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 SoC. There’s 1GB of RAM on board with 8GB/16GB of internal storage. Fortunately, you can expand the storage by using a micro-SD card.
On the back of the phone, you are greeted with an 8MP rear camera and a single-LED flash. On the front, you get a decent 5MP front camera to meet your selfie needs. The phone is capable of recording videos in 720p HD.
Specification of Redmi Go
- 5-inch 720p display with 294 PPI
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 SoC clocked @ 1.4GHz
- Adreno 308 GPU
- 1GB of RAM
- 8GB/16GB of internal storage
- 8MP rear camera with f/2.0 aperture
- 5MP front camera with f/2.2 aperture
- Hybrid dual-SIM slot
- A-GPS and GLONASS
- 3000mAh battery
The 3000mAh battery should be more than enough to power the phone since it has a small display and an efficient SoC.
The phone is initially launching in Philippines and parts of Europe for around $90 (~ Rs. 10,000) We are not sure if the phone will launch in Nepal officially. Do you think it should launch in Nepal? Share your thoughts down in the comment section down below.
