Remember the gorgeous edge-to-edge Xiaomi Mi MIX that was unveiled last month? The phone is quite a monster coming with a huge 6.4-inch display.
But if you don’t particularly like holding a huge device to your ear while you’re in a call, the good news is that Xiaomi seems has a smaller version of the Mi MIX in the works. The phone dubbed the Xiaomi Mi MIX Nano showed up online in a bunch of leaked photographs this week.
A few shadowy images apparently showcasing the size difference between the Mi MIX with the Mi MIX Nano have found their way online. One photo shows the About Phone section on the Mi MIX Nano and judging by it the smaller phone’s spec list is going to be quite similar to the Mi MIX.
In case you don’t remember the Mi MIX made a debut into the wild with a 6.4-inch display with 1080 x 2040 resolution and a Snapdragon 821 clocked at 2.35GHz under the hood working with either 4GB/6GB of RAM and 128GB/256GB of internal storage.
The phone features a 16MP/5MP camera couple, a hefty 4,400 mAh battery and Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow out of the box. In China the prices start from around $517 for the base version, but if you are an international customer and you really want the device, you’ll have to pay as much as you would for a Pixel. Websites like XiaomiDevice sell the 4GB/128GB version for $819 a pop.
Anyway, moving along to the Mi MIX Nano, the phone should arrive with a 5.5-inch display just like the Google Pixel XL (same size, different take on it). The device should feature the same 1080p resolution as the Mi MIX, which fits much better in the picture given the phone’s diagonal.
The Nano will have a Snapdragon 821 clocked at 2.53 GHz (bug?) and only a 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage version. It will probably take advantage of a smaller battery, since it doesn’t have a huge screen to support.
Last but not least, the Nano is shown to be running Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, but hopefully by the time it’s ready to launch Android 7.0 Nougat will be unboard.
Rumors expect the Mi MIX Nano to launch for approximately $435 in China. Would you be interested?
