List of Xiaomi phones that support Jio 5G
The List of Xiaomi Smartphones Now Reliance Jio’s 5G network in India supports Mi 11 Ultra 5G, Xiaomi 12 Pro 5G, Xiaomi 11T Pro 5G, Redmi Note 11 Pro+ 5G, Xiaomi 11 Lite NE 5G, Redmi Note 11T, 5G, Redmi Note5 10T 5G, Mi 11X 5G , Mi 11X Pro 5G, Redmi K50i 5G, Xiaomi 11i 5G and Xiaomi 11i Hypercharge 5G — according to the company’s announcement yesterday.
The move makes Xiaomi the latest brand to launch 5G partnerships in India. Earlier this year, OnePlus also announced a partnership with Jio To bring 5G connectivity to its smartphones.
To be sure, the rollouts and partnerships will also support other formats of 5G connectivity and make smartphones compatible with Reliance Jio’s standalone 5G and Bharti Airtel’s non-standalone 5G networks in India. Standalone 5G refers to network infrastructure where the core of the network and customer endpoints are also upgraded to meet the required latency and bandwidth specifications of 5G.
Non-standalone 5G, on the other hand, shares the same network infrastructure core as 4G, but upgrades endpoints to provide better latency and bandwidth.
While standalone 5G is generally better, thus making Jio a theoretically superior network, Airtel says its network is ready for it and will be upgraded in due course.
