Xiaomihas been an extraordinary brand for Nepalese People and Nepali market as well. After being an independent brand, Redmi launched the Redmi Go phone in China last month.

On this price range, this might be the best option for people who are planning to buy a new smartphone this year with some nice features and a good brand name as well.
