Xiaomi recently announced its first ever and most affordable Android Go device in India. The company known for its aggressive pricing and value for money phones did take some time to hop onto the new Android format but the Redmi Go was released in February with 8GB of storage priced Rs 4,499 with some lucrative introductory offers. Now, Xiaomi will be releasing a 16GB version of the same handset. There’s no date right now, but since this is an official announcement, we expect it to arrive soon.

Interestingly, the teaser on Twitter didn’t mention 16GB but it’s almost a given, however, the other curiosity is that whether we could get extra storage with it. With the extra storage, the handset will surely reach the Rs 5,000 mark. At that point, it will have considerable competition from the likes of the Realme C2 that starts at Rs 5,999.
For Rs 4,499, the Redmi Go offers a 5-inch HD screen with 1280 x 720 pixel resolution, 16:9 aspect ratio, that draws power from a 3,000mAh battery. It has an 8MP rear camera with LED Flash on the rear and a 5MP front selfie shooter. Under the hood, the Snapdragon 425 SoC sits alongside the Adreno 308 GPU and 1GB of RAM. It runs the Android Oreo (Go Edition).
