Redmi, the new range that has separated Xiaomi have its own entry level and mid-range mobile segment, today announced the Redmi Go, one of the cheapest mobile phones of the company and that comes with the advantage of having Android Go, the stock version of Android was designed to be as light as possible and run on low-cost phones.
Redmi Go: Snapdragon 425 and Android Go on your mobile phone cheaper
Redmi Go is the second cellphone without the name of Xiaomi, and the first one that has Android Go. Inside we find a Snapdragon 425 with four cores Cortex-A53 at 1.4 GHz, 1 GB of RAMversions of 8 and 16 GBand microSD card slot. This slot is dual, so we can choose between two SIMs, or a SIM and a microSD.
The battery it charges is 3.000 mAh, used to nourish a 5 inch LCD screen with resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels with proportion 16: 9. As for the cameras, we found a camera 8 MP main rear with f / 2.2 aperture, and a front of 5 MP f / 2.2.
The version of Android that manages this terminal is Android 8.1 Oreo Go Edition, used by other terminals with Android Go. This version was created with the highest possible optimization in mind, and we can clearly see that the mobile only has 1GB of RAM, something short to move a lot of applications, as we usually have in mobile phones. Pre-installed we find the applications of Google Go, Go Wizard, Gmail Go and YouTube Go.
80 euros, and will go on sale in Europe in February
The terminal also loses some of the features that are essential today, as is the case with the fingerprint reader. It also does not have WiFi AC (only N), and uses microUSB connector. Bluetooth remains in version 4.1. Its dimensions are 140.4 x 70.1 x 8.35 mm and has a weight of 137 grams.
The price of Xiaomi Redmi Go is 80 euros, and it will be for sale in Europe during the month of February, available in color black and blue. The price may vary depending on the markets, but with this we see that the company wants to be located with the most succulent terminal at the lowest possible price. Despite this, there are other terminals that offer better resources for a slightly higher price, such as Redmi 6A. This phone has a larger screen, better camera, better processor (up to 2 GHz), more storage (16 GB and 32 GB, expandable) and more RAM (2 GB, the minimum needed in a terminal today to work with laxity). To have launched a Redmi 6A with Android One would have been a even more attractive option.
