More than three weeks into the new year, and we’re finally getting something new from Xiaomi Philippines.
(Update, January 31: We spotted the local price of the Redmi Go. See Redmi Go by Xiaomi priced in the Philippines. Update, January 27: Yup, Xiaomi has finally confirmed the Redmi Go, three days after we first reported about it. See Redmi Go officially announced. Here’s its possible price in PH.)
But don’t keep your hopes up for the Redmi Note 7 just yet because the teaser the company has posted on its official Facebook page is that of the Redmi Go. Look.
Xiaomi Philippines’ post on Facebook
Yes, that’s the Redmi Go. We can’t blame you if you think it’s an image of Redmi’s first offering as a separate brand from Xiaomi. If you look closely, however, you’d see that the smartphone in the image has bigger bezels than the Redmi Note 7.
Plus, thanks to a tip from Von Hector Magdua, we found the Redmi Go’s listing on ecommerce site Lazada. There’s no official price for it yet, but all the specs are already listed on the online store. The handset’s tagline says, “Go smart, do more,” the same phrase Xiaomi used in its teaser, only hashtagged this time.
In case you didn’t know, the Android Go phone has not been launched anywhere, not even in India, just yet. So we believe that the Philippines will be one of the first — if not the first — countries that will get it.
