2020 will be the year of 5G and Chinese manufacturers are more aggressive than ever, ready to bring the new standard onboard mid-range devices, as well as on expensive top of the range. Like colleagues, Xiaomi – through CEO Lei Jun – confirmed that starting next year, all models in the price range above 2000 yuan (about $285) will be equipped with 5G support.
Lei Jun also pointed to China Mobile to accelerate efforts to expand eSIM technology across China. Apparently, Xiaomi will mark the smartphone market next year. Smartphones currently supporting 5G technology have a $400 price tag.
