If you are in the market to hunt for a compact flagship smartphone, less than 5 inch in screen size, you won’t find many good products. There are some of the smartphones like the iPhone SE or the Sony Xperia X Compact which are available, but the choices are really limited.
If the recent leaks are to be believed, we may see Xiaomi coming with a compact, extremely powerful smartphone, in 2017. There were some rumors couple of months back which stated Xiaomi is working on a small form factor smartphone called as the Xiaomi Mi 5 Mini, but it never materialized.
The new rumors surface from some of the images shared on the Chinese social media website, Weibo, which showcases a new Xiaomi device. I am not very sure that this will make it to the real world 100%, but if it does it would be a great option for many buyers.
Xiaomi Mi S
The Xiaomi Mi S is likely to be powered by the Qualcomm’s Fastest processor – Snapdragon 821 clocked at 2.35 GHz. And it will have 4 GB of RAM. The device comes with 4.6 inch display and a Full HD resolution (1920*1080) pixels, 453 PPI pixel density. It is a compact and portable smartphone ideal for one hand use.
The smartphone can come with 64 GB / 128 GB of internal storage and Dual Sim Support. Being a Flagship, it will have 4G LTE as well as VOLTE support and native connectivity options like 3G and 2G would also be there.
The device comes with a 12 Mega Pixel rear camera with Sony IMX 378 Sensor and there is a 4 ultra pixel front camera for clicking selfies. The rear camera will have support for 4K videos and Electronic image stabilization.
Below are some of the slides leaked on Weibo
The Xiaomi Mi S comes with 2600 mAH battery and will feature Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 for rapid charging. The mobile will have USB type C port and NFC support. There is a 3.5 mm jack and the Mi S will also come with a fingerprint scanner embedded in the front home button.
The Mi S has 8.2 mm thickness and weighs 138 grams. Running on the Android Marshmallow 6.0 along with Xiaomi MiUi Rom, it will have flawless performance.
While the concept of having a compact flagship is alluring, we may have to wait for some months, to see if it becomes a reality.
One the other hand Xiaomi has recently launched the Xiaomi Mi Mix a bezel less smartphone with a huge 6.4 inch screen size in China. And there are some leaks which hints at a smaller Mi Mix Nano in works too.
