We know that 5G is going to be the next big thing in smartphone connectivity and many OEMs have started working on the same. Many of them have also officially confirmed their plans regarding the same including planned phone releases. The latest to join the club are Redmi, Honor, and Vivo as each of them have announced the names of their respective 5G phones.
Lu Weibing, General Manager at Redmi, posted on Weibo to announce that Redmi K30 will be released with 5G connectivity support. He did not offer any other details but it is confirmed that the phone will be a successor to the Redmi K20. It was launched globally about three months ago which means we might have to wait for at least a couple of months more before we see the Redmi K30 getting launched.
Honor's President Zhao Ming also took the same social media platform Weibo to announce his plans. He said that the upcoming Honor V30 aka Honor View 30 will be a 5G-capable smartphone. This will make it the first 5G smartphone from Honor and since Huawei has already released a 5G phone, it should not face any trouble releasing its own offering. It will be an Honor View 20 successor and is likely to come with yet-to-be-announced Kirin 990 processor.
Lastly, Vivo has confirmed that the NEX 3 5G smartphone is all set for official launch next month in China. It will be the third smartphone in the NEX lineup as the currently available NEX Dual Display was announced last year. There are no official details on features or specs but there has been a leak. It claims that the NEX 3 will boast a 99.6% screen-to-body ratio and will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Plus processor. It will have a 64-megapixel sensor which should be the recently released Samsung ISOCELL sensor. There is expected to be 44W fast charging support.
