It looks like the Chinese smartphone maker and electronics giant Xiaomi is working on a new 5G smartphone. According to a new report, a new Xiaomi-branded 5G smartphone was spotted on Chinese certification website TENAA. We are not sure about the launch name of the smartphone but the description clearly states “5G digital mobile phone”. The company has already launched its first 5G smartphone, the Mi Mix 3 5G around Mobile World Congress earlier this year. The report revealed that the upcoming smartphone may be the much-rumored Xiaomi Mi 9 5G smartphone.
