Actually, 2 years ago it was available on Redmi Note 7 pro(highest among Redmi 7 series) And now it is gonna be released with Redmi Note 10(lowest among Redmi 10 series) They are literally the same processor but price has reduced a lot which is a good thing i guess

Its just renamed 675 with slight change in CPU clock speed and launched in intention to take over Mediatek in budget segment as G series was taking lead.

dirty trick by snapdragon selling old processor and calling it latest 😂 I'm a proud 675 user and i was looking for upgrade but 678 is a joke.. I'd go for 750 only

4G would be better than 5G if your provider provide the strongest signal than a weak 5G signal.
