However, a new report out of China has claimed that the firm will soon diversify it’s 5G mobile portfolio by introducing entry-level 5G devices that cost around 1,208 Yuan (US$150). These affordable 5G smartphones could debut by the end of the year, or early next year.

As of now, the Redmi K30 5G is the cheapest 5G smartphone in the market having a price tag of just 1,999 Yuan (US$290). It was recently reported that the Realme X50 might also have a watered-down variant with 6GB RAM that could come with the same price range as well.

With the recent introduction of MediaTek’s Dimensity 800 SoC, we will definitely see more affordable 5G devices being launched this year. This will be a positive boost to the 5G adoption rate across the world.
