5G is a reality, more or less. Although it is still at an early stage of its development in most countries, 5G is configured as the mobile network of the future and it is therefore normal for companies to focus on launching compatible terminals. There we have Samsung, Huawei and Xiaomi, which It already has two in the market and many more to come.
The company launched the Mi MIX 3 5G a few months ago and recently launched the Xiaomi Mi 9 Pro, the last to arrive from the Mi 9 family. Now its CEO, Lei Jun, has confirmed at the World Internet Conference that these are taking place days in China that its plan for 2020 is to continue betting on 5G by launching more than ten compatible phones.
A step to take
According to the CEO, the demand for the Xiaomi Mi 9 Pro has exceeded the expectations of the company, so much that it has generated problems in the supply chain. Thus, the firm seems to have seen in the 5G a reef seeking to take advantage launching high-end, middle and low 5G mobiles over the next year. 5G phones are more expensive than their 4G models, so you have to see how they manage to implement this connectivity without raising prices too much.
In the words of Jun, "people in the industry fear that next year 4G models will not be sold, so this It is a step that there is no choice but to take"But for this to come to fruition it will be necessary for the 5G to continue expanding, so from Xiaomi they expect that" operators can accelerate their expansion of 5G base stations. "
The market has been stagnant for a while and 5G could help it rebound
And it is that the smartphone market has been stagnant for some quarters. The latest data from the consultants, corresponding to 2018, state that the market fell 4% last year, but the arrival of 5G could be a strong argument so users want to renew their devices, some devices that are kept longer and longer. Without a 5G mobile, there is no 5G that can be used.
Looking ahead to the premium middle and middle range, Qualcomm has already announced that the 6XX and 7XX range processors will have an integrated 5G modem (compatible with sub-6GHz and mmWave) and that there are twelve companies, including LG, OPPO and HMD Global, which will use the 7XX in future releases. With this movement, Bringing 5G to the most affordable mobiles should be easier, but to check how they fit in the market we can only wait.
