We could say that 2020 was a very special year for the mobile phone market. While brands like Xiaomi or OnePlus, which had always opted for cheap devices, presented their first terminals at 1.000 euros, Apple, always criticized for its high prices, throws itself into the pool with a model of only 399 dollars but with a status state-of-the-art processor generation.
Xiaomi's 5G mobile phones in 2020.
Finding the culprits in this situation is not difficult at all, but undoubtedly one of the main ones is 5G. This technology has been the perfect excuse for different brands to charge us more for the same and that is that although we do not deny that 5G will be a great revolution compared to its predecessor, it is no less true that we will not go for a couple of years to be able to take full advantage of it.
Despite all this, there are not a few users who already want a smartphone with 5G and since we also know that Xiaomi is one of your favorite brands, here we leave you the main Xiaomi phones compatible with 5G networks and that we can buy.

Xiaomi Mi 10T Series
The Xiaomi Mi 10T in silver.
Each of the three models of the Xiaomi Mi 10T series has 5G connectivity. Including the My 10T Lite cheaper, which it still is today the cheapest 5G mobile from Xiaomi.
The three terminals have a value for money difficult to match, so much so that it is positioned as i best Xiaomi 5G mobiles which you can buy today.
Xiaomi mi 10 ultra
The Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra comes with a quad rear camera.
The Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra is not only one of Xiaomi's newest 5G phones. It is also his most beastly smartphone of 2020 and part of 2021.
It has the first 120x zoom on the mobile market in addition to one 144 hertz screen and a totally differentiating design compared to the rest of the models of the Mi 10 series.
Xiaomi Mi 10 Lite
The best Xiaomi for this price, with an AMOLED screen, 5G technology and a great camera.
Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro are not the only terminals of the Mi 10 series with 5G. With one Snapdragon 765G, the Xiaomi Mi 10 Lite 5G is a low-priced mid-range terminal that offers 5G connectivity at a more than reasonable price.
LITTLE F2 Pro
The Poco F2 Pro has a bezel-less front that is very immersive.
The first terminal of the POCO series to arrive with 5G incorporated was the LITTLE F2 Pro and today he is still one of the cheapest 5G phones with Snapdragon 865 on the market.
It has one screen from 6,67 inches based on AMOLED technology, and a quad rear camera driven by a 64 megapixel sensor, which is accompanied by a "Telemacro" never seen on a smartphone before.
Xiaomi Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro
Presented last February, the new Xiaomi Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro are crowned as the most powerful Xiaomi terminals in their catalog. Although the Chinese company has always been characterized by the launch of devices with an excellent quality-price ratio, this seems to have ended with these new devices.
Because even if it is true that the Mi 10 and the Mi 10 Pro lack nothing (Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 processor and other high-end components) the their price is not suitable for all budgets and is that for the first time in history, Xiaomi dares with a 1.000 euro phone for daily consumption.
Obviously everyone has to evaluate whether or not they deserve to pay this money, we will not do it. Obviously we must not forget that both models have 5G.
Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 5G
The Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 5G was the first 5G terminal that left the Chinese borders and certainly one of the best options if what we want is a "cheap" terminal with this technology in our country.
Although honestly and despite having a Snapdragon 855 processor and 6GB of RAM, there are better alternatives on the market for the same price. Although of course, if what we are looking for is a terminal with 5G, we will have to pay for it. Worth? Let each one enhance it.
Redmi K30 and K30 Pro
Too bad these devices are only available in China, because they would be one of the best options for all those looking for a 5G terminal at the best price, well below other terminals with 5G.
There is also a more modern variant, the K30 Pro with better and even more expensive features, albeit like its younger siblings, is available for sale in China only. Maybe next time.
Xiaomi Mi MIX Alpha
One of the most peculiar devices of the Chinese company and perhaps the least attractive in its catalog. Not only for its high price, but also because it is clear that this is not a terminal suitable for everyday use, but it was a demonstration by Xiaomi that they also know how to innovate.
Be that as it may, the Mi MIX Alpha does not stop being a simple anecdote in Xiaomi's curriculum and despite having 5G, we doubt anyone who can acquire this terminal will do so for this technology.
Redmi Note 9 and Redmi Note 9 Pro
The new Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 with 5G.
Shortly before the end of 2020 Xiaomi presented the new Redmi Note 9 and Redmi Note 9 Pro with 5G. For the time being, these terminals have been launched in the Chinese market, although we hope they reach our territory to be able to enjoy these fantastic models with 5G at reduced prices.
The Redmi Note 9 Pro, the first Redmi Note to have 5G, has very good specs like the 120Hz refresh rate, Snapdragon 750G 5G and a 4.820 mAh battery with 33 W fast charging. On the other side is the Redmi Note 9, with the MediaTek Dimensity 800U processor, 5.000 mAh battery with 18 W charge and quad rear camera with 48 main sensor MP.
Both options are very attractive for have a mobile with 5G at the best price. For now, we will have to wait for its launch outside of China.
Black Shark 3 and Black Shark 3 Pro
A characteristic device with which to enjoy the best games.
Two Xiaomi phones with 5G that you can buy outside of China are the Black Shark 3 and the Black Shark 3 Pro, aimed at the "gamer" audience.
And there are few terminals that can resist these from Black Shark, which they offer an exceptional gaming experience thanks to their large screens, powerful processors and long autonomy. Also, as we say, they have 5G connectivity.
There are other Xiaomi terminals with 5G, although unfortunately they are not available outside China. A clear example is the Xiaomi Mi 9 Pro 5G that we would like to see it in our country as well as other variants of other Xiaomi devices only available in its native country.
This shows us that Xiaomi's catalog with 5G outside of China is not exactly vast. Beyond the Mi Mix 3 5G or the new Mi 10 range, the range is really poor, albeit Xiaomi is committed to gradually expanding it.
However, the "problem" is that many of those 5G phones created by Xiaomi do not go beyond its borders. Perhaps in 2021 the manufacturer's strategy will change and we will be able to enjoy many of those phones that launches with 5G.
