Chinese smartphone manufacturer Xiaomi is all set to launch its new smartphone Redmi Go in India tomorrow.Xiaomi typically uses a heavily-customised version of Android – MIUI – on its smartphones, however the company has started deviating a little from its own OS flavour in favour of the Android One and Android Go platforms. The Redmi Go is expected to launch in India at a price of around Rs 4,000, which would make it one of the cheapest Android Go smartphones in the market right now. Xiaomi is hinting that its next phone will come with a lot of India-focused features. The phone will support up to 20 Indian languages. It will also have Google Assistant with support for Hindi language.The Xiaomi Redmi Go mobile features a 5.0″ (12.7 cm) display with a screen resolution of HD (720 x 1280 pixels) and runs on Android v8.1 (Oreo) operating system. The device is powered by Quad core, 1.4 GHz, Cortex A53 processor paired with 1 GB of RAM. As far as the battery is concerned it has 3000 mAh.Additionally, the company has included an 8-megapixel rear camera with an LED flash as well as 5-megapixel front shooter in the smartphone. Flipkart teaser reveals that the phone will have auto-HDR support and 11 scene modes to make taking pictures a bit easier.
Although unconfirmed, Xiaomi Redmi Go appears to be a 16:9 aspect ratio screen, with thick non-screen space above and below the screen. The power and volume buttons are present on the right side of the phone, and capacitive keys for Android navigation – home, back and recents – have been placed below the screen. Redmi Go runs on Google’s Android 8.1 Oreo (Go Edition) and comes pre-installed with customised apps like Gmail Go, Assistant Go, Maps Go, etc. For the unintended, Google announced its ambitious Android Oreo Go edition. The Go edition was first announced at Google I/O 2017 and it meant for low-end devices that run with 512MB to 1GB of memory.
