Xiaomi is one of the manufacturers that best plays with the price of their mobile phones. The brand of Chinese origin even declared, in the mouth of its CEO, that it would not raise the 5% profit margin on its sales, and so far seems to have been complying. Their phones tend to be among the most competitive in terms of value for money in the market, and on cheaper lines it is almost impossible to compete against them.
Despite having its own powerful layer such as MIUI, Xiaomi already bet last year on Android One with the Mi A1, a model that had a second generation duplicated with Mi A2 and Mi A2 Lite. Now it seems that the oriental builder points to Android Go, the version of the system for cheaper phones, and its first model has already gone through the first round of certifications.
The Redmi Go smartphone, which will be the first from Xiaomi to bring the Android Go operating system, went through the certification process in 3 different countries: United States (FCC), Singapore (IMDA) and Russia (EEC).
Xiaomi is a company that has managed to perform in a spectacular way in the Smartphone market in recent years, so much so that it has managed to establish several lines of smartphones that have been very much liked by the public and that have been considered some of the best products each year. Recently it was announced that one of its most popular series, Redmi, became an independent brand and would release its first mobile, which has been a success, because of this is already working on its second device, which has been filtered and is called Redmi Go.
There has been a lot of talk about this phone recently due to the appearance of a render, in which you can see what it looks like, in addition to the fact that all the specifications with which the mobile will come were also filtered, adding to all this, it is also said that the Philippines will be the first country that will receive this terminal. The official Xiaomi Philippines Facebook account made a publication in which the expectation of a new mobile was created, and the publication was accompanied by the hashtag #GoSmartDoMore.
This mobile is equipped with a 5-inch HD screen, has an aspect ratio of 16:9 and a brightness of 380nits. The processor that gives power to the device will be a Snapdragon 425, which will have in its power 1GB of RAM and 8GB of ROM, and another thing is that it will offer support for MicroSD. These turn out to be quite modest features for Redmi phones, because they have always specialized in creating great value for money phones for the mid-range.
It has speakers that are on the bottom of the mobile, in conjunction with the Micro USB port. The Redmi Go has a rear 8MP camera with HDR and an LED flash, is located in the upper left corner. With respect to its front camera, this one is 5MP. It has the ability to connect via Bluetooth 4.1 and single-band WiFi, another thing it offers is Dual-SIM compatibility. The battery of this device is not bad, has a capacity of 3000mAh that supports standard load of 5V.
It is speculated that the mobile works with an Android 8.1 Oreo operating system and will be available in blue and black. The price is not known, but judging from the specifications you might think it will be between $90 and $110.
Nothing is known about the processor, so they have already opened the pools on whether it would be a Snapdragon of the lower lines or a MediaTek in similar conditions. For now, it seems that what remains is to wait. If it has been certified, its release may be very close. Before the end of the year? We’ll see. We will be very attentive because it will be Xiaomi’s first Android Go phone. How much will it sell for?
