After Apple yesterday introduced the world’s first processor with 5nm lithography – A14 Bionic – Xiaomi will not be left behind. Yesterday it was also revealed that Samsung will be responsible for the manufacture of the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 875, which will also be manufactured with 5nm lithography.

Now, through his official account on the Chinese social network Weibo, Lu Weibing – Vice President of Xiaomi – has left the possibility of the next Redmi smartphone coming equipped with this processor. It is true that the VP ended up not mentioning names, but considering the usual timeline of the brand, everything indicates that it will be the Redmi K40 Pro.

Redmi is increasingly paired with Xiaomi in the high-end segment

After being created to focus on launching even more affordable smartphones, Redmi has evolved in an incredible way in the quality of its smartphones, also betting heavily on the high-end segment. Although its main focus continues to be the launch of smartphones that offer an incredible quality / price ratio, Redmi has managed to expand its portfolio in an incredible way.

It is to be expected that both brands (Xiaomi and Redmi) will continue to follow the same strategy, presenting themselves increasingly as two forces to consider in the various segments, instead of Redmi being just a “cheaper version” of Xiaomi.

When will the first Xiaomi range tops arrive in 2021

Even though there was no information to confirm the launch dates for the first 2021 tops, the brands’ history allows us to speculate when this might happen with some certainty.

As happened this year, it is believed that in 2021 Xiaomi will present the alleged Xiaomi Mi 20 before the Spring Festival in China, which will take place in February. Redmi, on the other hand, should also maintain its tradition and launch the Redmi K40 and K40 Pro the following month, in March.

Therefore, it should be guaranteed that Xiaomi will bring to the market at least two smartphones equipped with the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 875 processor during the first quarter of 2021.
