Redmi general manager Lu Weibing posted on Weibo that the brand name will have “new surprises” this month, but it appears to be like a regular leaker may possibly have spoiled the social gathering.

Tipster Electronic Chat Station says Redmi will unveil the Redmi 10X 4G, a Redmi 9 or 10, and a new Redmi mobile phone geared up with the Dimensity 800 processor.

The Redmi 10X 4G seems to be the Chinese edition of the Redmi Notice 9, when the Redmi 9 or 10 must be a phase beneath the Redmi Observe series. But it is the last telephone that has us intrigued.

The Dimensity 800 processor is a 5G-enabled MediaTek chipset, and it’s positioned as an higher mid-vary to mid-variety processor. The chipset packs an octacore CPU (four Cortex-A76 and 4 Cortex-A55), a Mali-G77 MP4 GPU, and an integrated 5G modem. The mid-array mother nature of the SoC (about equivalent to the Snapdragon 765 series) means we can anticipate a additional cost-effective 5G mobile phone from Redmi then, but how substantially less costly?

Properly, an apparently leaked memo received by ITHome very last month states Xiaomi will launch a 1,599 yuan (~$226) 5G mobile phone in June. It’s possible the Redmi mobile phone in query and the handset mentioned by ITHome are the very same system. If the two devices are the exact same, then it’ll definitely be the most affordable Redmi 5G phone, edging out the ~$280 Redmi K30 5G.
