It looks like 2020 will be the year of 5G. At least Xiaomi has it for sure.

Big plans

Xiaomi head Lei Jun (Lei Jun

) during a speech at the 2019 China Mobile Global Partner Conference, said the company aims to develop and promote 5G-enabled mobile devices.

And if now the fifth generation networks support mostly only flagship (and therefore not cheap) smartphones, then next year Xiaomi will change that.

According to Lei Jun, all the smartphones of the manufacturerwith a price tag above 2,000 yuan ($ 285) next year will receive 5G support. Recall that earlier he promised to release more than 10 such smartphones next year.

And the first in 2020, it seems, will be the Redmi K30. He will receive a mid-budget MediaTek chipset with a built-in 5G modem and will be released at the beginning of the year.
