However, the phone maker is looking to expand its product offerings for the Indian market. As per the market reports, Xiaomi will be introducing an entry level smartphone that will sit below the Redmi 6A in Xiaomi's product offerings. Likely to be powered by Android Go, the new smartphone will be priced below Rs 5000 as per the market rumours.

Going by the market reports, Xiaomi is expected to launch the new Redmi Go phone by the first half of 2019. Moreover, the company will also be launching Redmi 7, Redmi 7 Pro and Redmi 7A around the same time. With the launch of the new entry-level phone, Xiaomi is reportedly believed to ditch its customised MIUI interface for the stock Android GO version. As the phone will be powered by Android Go, it is believed that the smartphone will be low on hardware specs. The smartphone is expected to sport 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal space, that we have already seen on other Android Go smartphones from Nokia and Samsung.

On the specification front, the phone could sport a 5.9-inch display with 18:9 of an aspect ratio. Under the hood, the phone will be powered by a MediaTek processor. Moving on to the most important aspect - Pricing, it is believed that the Redmi Go phone will be the cheapest offering from Xiaomi in the Indian market. Currently, Redmi 6A is the cheapest phone from Xiaomi in India, which is priced at Rs 5999. As Redmi Go Phone will be positioned below Redmi 6A, the company will be looking to price the smartphone pretty competitively.
