Large screen smartphones have become the favorites for many users. But two or three years ago, 4-inch displays were popular. There are actually people who still look for small smartphones but it isn’t easy to find one, unless you consider older devices. In the last two years, smartphones have been released with 5.5 and 5.7-inch displays. Xiaomi recently released the Mi Max, which comes with a 6.44-inch display. Many of us didn’t think we would be using large screen smartphones a few years ago but now, we’re used to them.
There are a lot of people who are not fans of large screen smartphones and companies have started to go back to the smaller displays. Large screen smartphones are good, we can watch videos and play games. But there are also a few disadvantages, such as not having a big enough pocket to put your smartphone inside.
Companies are seeing the interest for the smaller displays and the market could soon see more smartphones with 4-inch displays. We recently saw this with the iPhone SE, which comes with a 4-inch display. Xiaomi, one of the biggest smartphone makers in the world, could release a smaller device soon, according to a rumor from China.
Rumored Price and Specs
The rumored smartphone is said to have a 4.3-inch display and a Snapdragon 820 processor. It’s also said to have 3GB RAM, 13MP camera, 32GB of storage and a fingerprint sensor. The rumored price? $275.
The smartphone has not been confirmed by Xiaomi but if true, it is a nice option for those who prefer smaller displays. The company is known for making great smartphones and selling them at low prices but some of their releases only arrive to China.
The Xiaomi Mi 5, released a few months ago, comes with a 5.15-inch display while the Mi Max comes with a 6.44-inch display. That’s two large screen smartphones in the last few months, will we see a Xiaomi smartphone with a 4-inch display soon?
