Xiaomi Mi 10 announced, and it will boast 5G

The new Xiaomi Mi 10 flagship handset has been announced, and it’s set to offer 5G connectivity as standard along with another impressive spec.

On stage at Qualcomm’s Snapdragon Summit, Lin Bin, the president of Xiaomi, announced that the brand will soon release the Xiaomi Mi 10 flagship, with the very latest Snapdragon 865 processor. Not only does this bring 5G connectivity as default to Xiaomi’s flagship series, but Bin also pledged to release ten or more 5G-enabled smartphones over the course of 2020, including in premium and mid-range lines, and “hopefully lower tiers” as well. On top of that, he also declared that there will be a 5G version of the Xiaomi Mi Watch released in 2020.
