Jongjave, 05 Jan 2021Its even better than SD690 in 5g connectivity (mmWave suppo... moreyes, but keep in mind it's limited to 200mhz mmWave channels. high end phones support 400mhz (double the bandwidth). for networks like Verizon.

Hey dude, 05 Jan 2021Very soon buying flagship will be absolutely luxury. If you... moreThats already reality. Only the people who need to have flagship specs for what ever reason will still buy flagship specs. Low end phone already do everything for you. I have few months more and my phone be 3 years old and i have had no problems so far with it. Never mind that i have not got any updates for a year or more. Redmi note 5 ai dual cam have not got even miui 12 update while it was meant to be scheduled as q4 2020

Battery still last 4-5 days for me as i dont play games other then candy crush or yatzy and even that not daily and more then 10 minutes a day. I dont feel like i am missing out on anything and phone will probably work for me more few years before i need new phone.

Only thing that would make me buy new phone as of now be if the phone would be compact that will be at most maximum 140mm tall as for me screen size 5-5.5inch be enough

Budget phone will be more powerful than ever, great news, hope i can buy a phone that will came out with this chip :)

Hey dude, 05 Jan 2021Very soon buying flagship will be absolutely luxury. If you... moreThis already happens. I bought an S7 edge around 5 years ago, used it around two years and then gave it to my mom. It still looks like new and apps that people use daily (messengers, social media, youtube, most games) still work smoothly. The camera is also great and it still receives security updates.

  • Hey dude

Very soon buying flagship will be absolutely luxury. If you need a smartphone for day to day usage then even an entry level device will suffice you for 3 to 5 years. Performance wise it will suffice majority of people. This situation has already occured in PC, now this time for smartphone.

In 2020, 5G smartphones were better value propositions than 4G legacy phones in all price segments except for phones priced below $150.

In 2021, 5G smartphones will be better value propositions than 4G legacy phones in all price segments (including smartphone priced as low as $50).

Several phone-makers are waiting for SD480 and MediaTek Dimensity 600 for their $70 and $100 5G smartphones. The rumor has it that Realme has the following 5G smartphones in its pipeline:
Realme V1: $70, 5G, no selfie, one camera, 720p full screen LCD;
Realme V2: $100, 5G, no selfie, one camera, 720p full screen LCD, decent-sized battery.

Hemedans, 04 Jan 2021suprise it use same cpu as sd 675, kryo 460, and because it... moreSD675 is nearly a 2.5 years mid-range, shouldn't come as a surprise that new entry-level chip will surpass it

  • syam7863

The specs are even higher than my SD712 in my Mi9SE.
Kryo 460 vs Kry0 360
Adreno 616 vs Adreno 619
So my Mi9SE is considered Lower Range by now
