Barcelona: China's Xiaomi, the world's fourth-largest smartphone maker, unveiled a smartphone on Sunday that will be able to take advantage of new and faster 5G mobile networks and cost far less than one announced by market leader Samsung last week.
Prices for Xiaomi's new offering will start at 599 euros ($679.33) when it hits the market in May, Donovan Sung, Xiaomi's global head of products, told a trade event in Barcelona, prompting gasps in the hall where it was presented.
