Lei Jun, founder, chairman and chief executive officer of Xiaomi, said, “2020 marks the year of 5G proliferation. In scaling the deployment of 5G, we have introduced several 5G smartphones powered by Snapdragon 8-series and 7-series 5G mobile platforms. Today, it is exciting to see Qualcomm Technologies expand 5G to the Snapdragon 4-series, accelerating 5G global commercialization. Xiaomi will become one of the world’s first OEMs to introduce a 5G smartphone powered by the Snapdragon 4-series 5G mobile platform. This is another step forward in our long-standing collaboration with Qualcomm Technologies.”
More information about the Snapdragon 4-series 5G Mobile Platform will be unveiled later. Devices based on this platform are expected to be commercially available in the first quarter of 2021.
