With the launch of iPhone 12 mini, it seems that Android phone makers have been reminded that there is still space on the market for smartphones with a compact form factor. In response to this, Redmi CEO Lu Weibing turned to Weibo to reveal that the company plans to enter this space in the near future.
Weibing hinted that the company is considering launching a small-screen phone that would most likely draw inspiration from the iPhone 12 mini which was launched by Apple last week along with iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max.
Confirming that Redmi has considered plans to manufacture a mini smartphone, he noted that the device may not be exactly the groomer people have come to expect from Xiaomi and that it should definitely reduce the battery size to achieve this form factor. . This should then impact the phone’s battery life which may end up not recording stellar runtimes like some of the Xiaomi phones we’ve seen in the last year.
The phone could take inspiration from the iPhone 12 mini that has received a lot of fan attention since it was made official. Speaking of the iPhone 12 mini, the most interesting of the iPhone 12 mini is definitely its compact form factor that allows you to easily carry the device and make it ready for one-handed use. However, a quick look at the hardware on offer would reveal that there is a lot more to like about iPhone 12 mini in addition to its size.
