Xiaomi sub-brand Redmi seems to be working on another 5G phone as per a puported listing on certification website 3C, which is a Chinese regulatory body. The phone with model number M2002J9E is expected to be part of the Redmi Note lineup. The listing shows support for 5G connectivity, as well as some specifications of the charging speed. Another leak seems to suggest that the Redmi K30 will be replaced by a 5G phone from the Redmi Note series and also hints at the price range.
The listing on China Compulsory Certification website, also known as 3C, was shared by GSMArena. It states the phone with model number M2002J9E has support for 5G. It also states that the phone will have support for 10.0VDC 2.25A charging which suggests a maximum charging speed of 22.5W. There is no other information available for this phone. Unfortunately, we could not verify the 3C listing.
