The M1903C3GG handset has been already approved by Federal Communications Commission (FCC) body in the U.S. and Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) in Russia in the recent weeks. However, the Redmi Go name has only surfaced today through its IMDA certification.
The IMDA certification of the smartphone has information on the specs of the smartphone. However, the Redmi Go moniker is a clear hint that it could be the first Android Go smartphone from Xiaomi. The FCC certification of the smartphone has revealed that the smartphone is a dual-SIM device that carries support for 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.2 which indicates it won’t be a high-end product.
Redmi Go Specs
The FCC listing of the smartphone have revealed that 141 x 71 mm are the dimensions of the Xiaomi Redmi Go. Since it measures 150 mm diagonally, it will sport a 5.9-inch screen. Probably, the handset could be equipped with an 18:9 aspect ratio display and if it turns to be an Android Go smartphone, it will be equipped with 1 GB of RAM. The low-end phone may feature only single camera on its rear. There is no information available on the other specifications and pricing of the smartphone.
Many leading smartphone makers such as Samsung and Huawei have launched Android Go smartphones in the recent past. Xiaomi is one of the companies that is yet to release an Android Go. Rumors that had surfaced around March this year had claimed that Xiaomi may release an Android Go phone in Europe with 100 euros price tag, but it didn’t come true. Now that the Redmi Go name has surfaced through Singapore’s IMDA certification, it seems that its launch may not be far away. The handset may go official in Q1 2019 next year.
