The AndroidTM Go program was launched by Google in 2017, with affordable smartphones running on a highly efficient version of Android. Out of the box, Redmi Go runs the Android™ 8.1 Oreo™ (Go edition) operating system, featuring reimagined Google apps that have been optimized to reduce storage and data use.

“Xiaomi has received such a warm welcome in the Philippines since its re-entry last year, and we are really grateful to all Mi fans for their support.” said Steven Shi, Head of Southeast Asia, Xiaomi Global. “With Redmi Go making its global debut here, we hope that even more users here will be able to enjoy an amazing smartphone experience at an amazing price. This is part of our commitment to make innovation available to everyone.”

Redmi Go features a 5.0-inch HD display, the Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 425 SoC, and a 3000mAh battery. On the back it sports a 8MP main camera supported by an LED flashlight. On the front, Redmi Go has a 5MP camera for selfies. It comes with two SIM card slots and has a dedicated microSD slot that supports up to 128GB microSD cards.
