Redmi Go specs leak, showing us the first Xiaomi Android Go phone


Leaked promotional photos of the Xiaomi Redmi Go, the first Android Go device from the company. Twitter

Xiaomi is well known around the world for making cheap-yet-powerful smartphones. Therefore, it’s only natural that the company would dip its toes into the relatively new Android Go ecosystem.

That day is right around the corner, as specs and images of the Xiaomi Redmi Go just leaked on Twitter, giving us a look at the very first Android Go phone from the company.

Because this is an Android Go device, you shouldn’t expect a specs powerhouse or any kind of innovative, beautiful design. Instead, you should expect some bare-bones hardware paired with some very simple design to create a phone that’s as inexpensive as possible.

Although we’ve got a clear idea of the Xiaomi Redmi Go specs from this leak, we’re not sure on the price. The source of the leak — @ishanagarwal24 — suggests that the phone will cost 5,000 rupees (~$70) or less when it hits the Indian market. There’s also no word on whether the device will hit other countries quite yet.

Either way, it’s nice to see the Android Go ecosystem gaining some traction, as developing nations represent much of the future for Android.
