The Android Go operating system is Google’s recent project for entry-level smartphones. We have seen its implementation by manufacturers like Nokia in the form of Nokia 1, and even domestic smartphone brands like Colors. Android Go has been released with an aim of providing the cheapest of smartphones with a good, if not a full Android experience. And with a similar goal, Xiaomi has launched the Xiaomi Redmi Go in Nepal.
Going by the specs, the Redmi Go is a 5-inch device with HD resolution and 16:9 aspect ratio. You get the very basic 1GB RAM with 8 GB expandable storage (the expansion is via a dedicated slot up to 128 GB).
Likewise, the performance is put together by the Quad-core Snapdragon 425 ( clocked at 1.4 GHz, Cortex A53) chipset with Adreno 308 GPU. As mentioned earlier, the Redmi Go is based on the Android Go operating system (Android 8.1 Oreo).
As far as the cameras go, you get a single 8 MP camera with LED flash and HDR feature. The front houses a decent 5 MP shooter for selfies.
Moving on, the phone has Dual SIM slots and the phone does support 4G. Backing up the Redmi Go is a modest 3,000 mAh battery, which is considerable for the price. Talking about the price, internationally, the phone has been launched for some $90.
