Xiaomi Might Release A Cheap 5G Smartphone For As Low As Rs. 10,000 At The End Of This Year

It seems like Xiaomi is planning to release a handful of affordable 5G smartphones this year, especially one with a price of just around Rs. 10,000.

Xiaomi is one of the leading phone makers in making 5G technology more affordable to a wider range of users. Xiaomi's first phone with 5G network is the Mi MIX 3 released in May 2019 for 599 EUR, equivalent to around 49,000. The following 5G phone, Mi 9 Pro 5G, was even cheaper, just over Rs. 40,000 at launch.

Not only that, but the recently-released Redmi K30 5G is also one of the most affordable 5G phones in the world at a price of only CNY 1,999, equivalent to around Rs. 21,500. And it seems that the Chinese company is planning to keep releasing "the world's cheapest 5G phone", as recent reports suggested that the brand was planning to release a 5G phone priced at only CNY 999 (around Rs. 10,700) by the end of this year.

For now, Xiaomi now has six 5G phones that are still available, including Mi 9 Pro 5G, Mi 10 Pro 5G, Mi 10 5G, Redmi K30 5G, K30 Pro 5G, and K30 Pro Zoom Edition.

As per some reports, Xiaomi's next 5G phone will be Redmi K30i, a watered-down model of the K30 5G with a 48MP sensor instead of a 64MP unit. The handset is expected to be unveiled in late April with a starting price of around CNY 1,799, equivalent to Rs. 19,300.

After Redmi K30i, there could be another Xiaomi 5G smartphone in June, which could be called Redmi Note 9 5G, with a lower price of CNY 1,599, equivalent to 17,100. And continuing the plan, in November, the brand's cheapest 5G phone priced at CNY 999 will be announced.

At the end of last year, CEO of Xiaomi Lei Jun announced that cheap 5G phones will become popular in 2021. It seems like Xiaomi wants to keep its promise by releasing at least one ultra-affordable 5G phone at the end of this year.
