Xiaomi currently offers 5G connectivity with the Mi Mix 3 5G, but the functionality has not been extended to any of the Redmi-branded devices.

The company has confirmed this week that the Redmi Note 8 will be powered by the Snapdragon 665, while the Note 8 Pro will be one of the first devices to ship with the MediaTek Helio G90T under the hood.

It will also offer a 5G option, which will make it another 5G-capable mid-range device on the market next year, alongside the Galaxy A90 from Samsung.
