The Redmi Go smartphone has finally gone official. The device was first certified in December last year and was leaked just a few days back. The Redmi Go is Redmi’s first ever Android Go smartphone. Android Go is a stripped-down version of Android which is tailor-made to run on even entry-level devices, offering the user a smooth and worthwhile experience at a low cost. The Redmi Go smartphone is an entry-level device and is not meant for high-performance users.
Images of the device have gone live on Twitter and showcase the smartphone in a black and blue colour variant. The device features a 5-inch screen with a display resolution of 720p. The chipset responsible for powering the device is an unspecified Snapdragon quad-core CPU. However, rumour has it that the smartphone is driven by the Snapdragon 425 SoC. The phone is expected to have 1GB RAM and 8GB internal storage. Fortunately, the device supports storage expansion via microSD card. The company has equipped the Remi Go with an 8 MP rear camera and 5 MP front-facing camera. While this may seem terrible, bear in mind that it is an entry-level device.
To ensure that the smartphone has all the juice it needs, Redmi has opted for a 3,000mAh battery. In all likelihood, the Redmi Android Go smartphone will run on Android 8.1 Ore (Go Edition). What do you think is the weakest link in the Redmi Go? Let us know in the comments section below!
