The Redmi Go has two storage options – 8GB and 16GB, but in India customers only get the 8GB version. However, the company has now announced that it will soon bring a new variant to India with more onboard storage, and it could be the 16GB model.
Redmi has shared a photo on Twitter with the text “Zyada space = Zyada photos” which translates to “More space = More photos.” Redmi doesn’t explicitly mention the Redmi Go, but the use of the hashtag #ApkiNayiDuniya (translation: Your New World) makes it clear that Redmi Go with more storage is coming soon to India. It’s the same hashtag that Redmi used to promote this entry-level smartphone in the country.

The Redmi Go is powered by Snapdragon 425 SoC which is paired with 1GB RAM. It’s built around a 5-inch HD display and runs Android 8.1 Oreo (Go Edition). The Indian variant comes with a dedicated slot for microSD card which allows storage expansion by up to 128GB.
The 8GB storage variant of the Redmi Go is priced at INR4,499 ($65) in India, so you can expect the 16GB model to cost around INR1,000 ($14) or INR2,000 ($29) more.
