Redmi Go price in India
The Redmi Go has been priced at Rs. 4,499 in India. Is that a good price for a phone with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of storage?
We don’t think so. But the closest good phones in the budget segment are the Realme C1 (Snapdragon 450/2GB/16GB) which costs Rs. 6,999, and the ASUS Zenfone Lite L1 (Snapdragon 430/2GB/16GB) which is available for Rs. 5,999. These may be costlier but offer a better value for money and also .
The Redmi Go will be available in Blue and Black colours.
