We have already got our hands on different brands’ Android Go smartphone such as Nokia 1 and Huawei Y3 2018. Now, it’s the time to get ready for Xiaomi’s first Android Go smartphone named Redmi Go in Australia. It’s now official.
The handset is entirely based on Android 8.1 Oreo (Go Edition) and comes with 2 sensational colors – Blue and Black and is heading to Philippines and Europe first. Rest of the world has to wait a little more.
The handset is backed by a modest 5-inches LCD screen with a maximum resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels with a conventional 16:9 aspect ratio. It has got an 8MP rear camera with an LED flash and 5MP front camera.
Talking further about Xiaomi Redmi Go Specifications, it’s powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 524 Chipset with four Cortex-A53 cores running at 1.4GHz. There is only 1GB of RAM and will be available in 2 variants in terms of onboard memory – 8GB and 16GB to accommodate your files and other stuff. Importantly, it’s expandable further through a microSD card.
The Redmi Go Edition actually employs a hybrid slot – like most of today’s smartphones, so you can choose between extra storage and dual SIM support, but cannot have both simultaneously.
It’s powered by an average amount of battery – 3000mAh which will last you all day long if you are a kind of moderate user. That also seems enough for a small screen and modest chipset, isn’t it?
The handset is most likely to start hitting shelves in February and is expected to set users back around €80 in Europe. How much will it cost in the Philippines? It’s yet to be revealed.
