Back in November last year, the head of Xiaomi Lei Jun promised that in 2020 all the manufacturer’s smartphones with a price tag above 2,000 yuan ($ 285) will receive 5G support. It looks like Xiaomi has now begun to deliver on its promise.
The IThome publication, citing a statement by the CEO of Xiaomi Group China and the head of Redmi Lu Weibing, writes that Xiaomi intends to remove from sales all smartphones without 5G more than 2000 yuan ($ 285).
First of all, this is the first 108-megapixel CC9 Pro cameraphone, which is sold on the international market under the name Mi Note 10. At the time of the announcement, it cost from $ 400. Lou Weibing promised to immediately remove him from the range.
“5G has arrived, and no one can stop it,” said the head of Xiaomi.
This year, the company has planned the release of more than 10 smartphones with 5G support. What “expensive” models will be abandoned is still not known exactly, but we hope that the “cleaning” will take place only in China, because we do not need 5G yet.
