A smaller version of the Mi Mix phone has been rumored for the last few days now. Yesterday, there were even rumors about a release next month. But an official of the company has denied the recent rumors about the smaller Mi Mix.
The recent rumors about the Mi Mix Nano were denied by the marketing director of Xiaomi, Zang Zhiyuan, who mentioned on Weibo that there’s no such product as Mi Mix Nano. His comments confirm that there is no Xiaomi Mi Mix Nano, despite the recent rumors and pictures of a similar but smaller phone.
The release of a Xiaomi Mi Mix Nano made sense as there are still many customers who like smaller phones. The Xiaomi Mi Mi has a 6.4-inch display while the Mi Mix Nano was rumored to have a 5.5-inch display.
Yesterday, rumors said that the Mi Mix Nano would be released in the first week of December. Pictures of what appeared to be a smaller version of the Mi Mix also surfaced. The marketing director has denied the rumors but the interesting part about this is that the comment was deleted.
Rumors and pictures of the Mi Mix Nano were good news for those who wanted a small version of the phone. But with the recent comments from the marketing director, it looks like we won’t see a smaller version.
The Xiaomi Mi Mix Nano was rumored to have a 5.5-inch display, 4GB of RAM, 16MP camera and Android 6.0 Marshmallow. The price of the rumored phone had also been revealed at CNY 3,000 ($433).
The Xiaomi Mi Mix, which has a starting price of $516, was released on November 4 but it is currently very difficult to buy in China as the company is reportedly making just 10,000 of them every month. It looks like there won’t be a Xiaomi Mi Mix Nano but who knows, maybe the company is planning to release it with a different name.
