Like every Android Go devices, this one also comes with basic specs useful for day to day usage. The Redmi Go has a decent 5-inch LCD screen that outputs a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixel. The screen doesn’t showcase any fanciness and limits to a common 16:9 aspect ratio. The bezels are nothing sort of amazing but it gets the job done for the most part.
Inside the device boast a fair share of power; Snapdragon 450 chipset powers the device that pairs with 1GB of RAM either 8GB or 16GB of internal storage — both expandable via microSD card.
The camera, at the rear, is of 8MP, while selfies are taken care of by a 5MP front sensor. The Xiaomi Redmi Go is powered by a modest 3,000mAh battery, which is quite impressive considering the low-res screen.
The Redmi Go will go on sale in February in Europe for €80 (approx $90), whilst the price for the Philippines is yet to be set. Availability of the handset outside these two regions is also unknown.
