If you like compact displays and smartphones that fit easily in your pocket, the market is limited, to say the least. Aside from Apple’s very good iPhone 13 mini and Asus Zenfone 8, compact smartphones that make little compromise on their features are almost non-existent.

However, the market could wake up with the surprise arrival of Xiaomi. The Chinese manufacturer has us quite accustomed to enlarging the screen of its smartphones for several years, the large and efficient formats are very popular in Asia, but the brand is also considering offering a compact smartphone.

A device in the testing phase

This idea comes from the Digital Chat Station leaker on Weibo, taken up by the site ITHome which claims that Xiaomi would work to offer at least one high-end compact smartphone in 2022, with few concessions on its features. The design would already be in the “NPI” stage, that is, in a testing stage to determine if the concept is viable.

Xiaomi has distinguished itself by the launch of many smartphones in its catalog. The brand now releases new devices every few weeks, even if it means creating a saturation effect. In this extensive catalog, the brand could leave a little space for a high-end compact smartphone.

So far, while commentators often request this concept, the target audience appears to have remained more confidential than for other ranges. The iPhone 12 mini was illustrated by poor sales relative to other iPhone models released at the same time. To the point that Apple could bet in 2022 on an iPhone Max, on the contrary, with a larger screen than its cousins.
