It is worth noting that the only processors in the 700-series with 5G support right now are the Snapdragon 765 5G, announced last year, and 768 5G, unveiled in May. Furthermore, Xiaomi already launched smartphones with the Snapdragon 765G and 768G chipsets, namely the Redmi K30 5G and Redmi K30 5G Racing Edition, respectively.
For now, there are a few speculations around the name of the upcoming handset, with some supposing that it could be the Mi 10T. The only thing that's certain at the moment is that this device will be one of the cheapest 5G phones when it debuts.
