The cheapest 5G Android smartphone available right now is the Redmi K30 5G which is priced at Rs.25,000 ($285). This is well above the mid-level threshold of Rs.15,000 or $200.
Now, Xiaomi, one of the key players in the 5G Android smartphone place is looking to bring the entry point for 5G smartphones lower with a low-budget Android smartphone. This was revealed by a tipster, The Digital Chat Station, who says Xiaomi is working on a 5G smartphone that will cost around 1,000 yuan or Rs.10,000 (US$140). They have assured that the phone will be within the budget of buyers as the price will be very economical.
The standard quality of the phone will not be up to the mark as the buyers cannot get quality as well as a reduction in price together. Fortunately, it will be powered with the 8-core SM6350 from Qualcomm that should be releasing at the same time the new Redmi 5G Android budget smartphone.
The SM6350 has eight cores: 2x Cortex-A77 @2.25 GHz and 6x Cortex-A55 @1.8 GHz. This Redmi phone will have 5G connectivity which will benefit the buyers.
