Xiaomi is all set to introduce a new entry-level smartphone in India, which is expected to be the company’s most-cheapest offering. The smartphone in question here is the Redmi Go which runs on Android Oreo (Go Edition). Xiaomi has already sent invites for the launch event tomorrow (March 19), and now, Flipkart has created a dedicated page highlighting key features of the smartphone. This also means that the smartphone will be available to purchase via Flipkart.
The dedicated page reveals that the Redmi Go will come with a Snapdragon chipset, Android Oreo (Go Edition), and AI camera with 11 scene modes and auto-HDR feature. But as Xiaomi has been teasing it as “Aap Ki Nayi Duniya,” the smartphone will support Google Assistant in Hindi. The company is also targeting the India centric audience with support for over 20 regional languages.
Xiaomi has already launched the Redmi Go in Europe priced at €80, which is approximately Rs 6,513. But considering the likes of Redmi 5A and Redmi 6A were priced at Rs 5,999, it remains to be seen how aggressive Xiaomi can go with the Redmi Go.
