Airtel 5G Plus will Work on all these Xiaomi, Redmi and Poco Phones

Xiaomi, Redmi and Poco have several smartphones which can support the 5G networks of Bharti Airtel right now. Note that the smartphone companies had to roll out OTA (over-the-air) updates for their devices to enable 5G support. Thus, if your smartphone is not running on the latest version, then it will not be able to support 5G. 

Highlights

  • Bharti Airtel, the second-largest telecom operator in India, has rolled out its 5G Plus in 25 cities so far.
  • Airtel's 5G Plus services will reach entire India by March 2024.
  • The telco is rolling out 5G non-standalone (NSA) networks and has branded its 5G services as 5G Plus.

Airtel 5G

Bharti Airtel, the second-largest telecom operator in India, has rolled out its 5G Plus in 25 cities so far. Airtel's 5G Plus services will reach entire India by March 2024. The telco is rolling out 5G non-standalone (NSA) networks and has branded its 5G services as 5G Plus. Right now, several brands with several smartphones have enabled their devices to support 5G network connectivity with the NSA networks of Airtel. Today, instead of focusing on every brand there is, we would be looking at the smartphones from Redmi, Xiaomi and Poco. Essentially, all of these devices are owned by one brand - Xiaomi. Let's take a look at the list.

Experience Airtel 5G Plus on all Existing Data Plans

Existing data plans will work on Airtel 5G Plus until roll-out is complete. The telco is not charging anything additional from its customers if they are already on a 4G plan. However, do note that with a 4G plan, the rate at which mobile data exhausts would go up. Airtel 5G Plus recently launched in the state of Odisha. The services are now available to customers in Bhubaneswar.

Airtel says that its 5G networks can deliver up to 20x to 30x more speeds. The telco is utilising the mid-band spectrum for delivering 5G to consumers in India. Airtel is also making strides with 5G in the enterprise domain. Much recently, Airtel and Mahindra group partnered to bring private 5G networks to the Chakan manufacturing facility of Mahindra.

Airtel would likely introduce 5G tariffs once it has completed covering most of India with 5G. However, the 5G tariffs won't be expensive and would be priced around 4G. Industry experts believe that higher 5G tariffs could derail the uptake of 5G services, and it wouldn't have any major impact on the overall revenues. Thus, a slightly higher price point for 5G, compared to 4G, would be sufficient.
