The most affordable smartphone from Xiaomi, Redmi Go, was launched earlier this year. When launched, the Redmi Go came with only one variant that has 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage. The company had aimed the device at first time Android users who didn’t want to burn a hole in their pocket buying a costly device. But now, through a tweet, Xiaomi has confirmed that the Redmi Go is getting a new variant with more storage. Xiaomi’s tweet indicates that the company might be launching the new Redmi Go with 16GB internal storage but it is unclear if the RAM of the device will also be increased or not.
Earlier today, the company revealed through a tweet with the hashtag #AapkiNayiDuniya. It should be noted that the company has earlier used this hashtag before when it launched the Redmi Go. The tweet also had the catchphrase ‘Zyada space = Zyada apps’ which further indicates that the Redmi Go will be coming with increased internal space. Although the company didn’t reveal the exact date when the new variant of the Redmi Go will launch in India, it is expected to launch soon.

The Redmi Go with the 8GB storage doesn’t have much storage to install many apps. That’s why the new 16GB variant of the device could solve the problems.
