The Dimensity 800 processor is a 5G-enabled MediaTek chipset, and it is positioned as a mid-range top-mid processor. The chipset packs an octacore CPU (four Cortex-A76 and four Cortex-A55), a Mali-G77 MP4 GPU, and an integrated 5G modem. The mid-range nature of the SoC (almost comparable to the Snapdragon 765 series) means we can expect a more affordable 5G phone from Redmi back then, but how much cheaper?

Well, a leaked memo obtained by ITHome last month says Xiaomi will launch a 1,599 yuan (~ $ 226) 5G phone in June. The Redmi phone in question is possible and the handset mentioned by ITHome is the same device. If both devices are the same, then surely this is the cheapest Redmi 5G phone, sporting a ~ $ 280 Redmi K30 5G.
