Xiaomi announced the launch of the Redmi Go today, the company’s first Android Go phone. Like most Android Go phones, the Redmi Go comes in under $100 and runs a stripped-down version of Android called Android 8.1 Oreo Go Edition. The budget phones are meant to be used by people with limited internet connectivity and offer pre-installed versions of Google apps like Gmail Go and YouTube Go that are focused on saving space and data.

The phone’s specs hit the basics. It has a 720p, five-inch display, an 8MP rear camera and a 5MP selfie camera, and what should be pretty good battery life with a 3,000mAh battery capacity. WinFuture reports that it runs on a Snapdragon 425 processor with 1GB of RAM and offers 8GB of internal storage that can be expanded with a microSD. It doesn’t have any of the extra flair seen on some of its Android Go competition, like the Asus ZenFone Live L1, which has a 18:9 display and a Face Unlock feature, but that may be the cost of hitting such a low price.
