Redmi Go officially debuts, will cost just €80

Ivan, 29 January 2019

Xiaomi's first Android Go smartphone is official. The Redmi Go is based on Android 8.1 Oreo (Go Edition), comes in Black and Blue, and is heading to Europe and the Philippines in February.

The phone packs a modest 5" 1280x720px LCD of the conventional 16:9 aspect, an 8MP main camera with LED flash and a 5MP selfie snapper.

The Redmi Go is powered by a Snapdragon 425 with four Cortex-A53 cores running at 1.4GHz. There's 1GB of RAM and either 8GB or 16GB of storage, which can be expanded with a microSD card. The Redmi Go actually employs a hybrid slot so you can choose between extra storage and dual SIM support, but can't have both.

The battery on the Xiaomi Redmi Go has 3,000mAh capacity, which is very generous considering the tiny screen and modest chipset.

So, what you trying to prove with a spec page? Galaxy J series is dead. Not discontinued but dead. There will be no more J series phone in 2019 onwards.
