I have written about how wonderful and beautiful the latest high-end smartphone from Xiaomi, the Xiaomi Mi MIX is, and in that article, I noted how the large screen size (6.4 inches) of the smartphone might stop some interested customers from purchasing it. It seems Xiaomi officials read that article 😉 , because we have reliable news that a Xiaomi Mi MIX Nano is in the works by the Chinese Apple.
An earlier image suggested the possibility of the smartphone, but since the display was off, one couldn’t be so sure. A more recent image however confirmed the rumours and has given hope to many who were wishing for a smaller version of the Starck-designed smartphone.
The latest image leak is that of the About info screen of the smartphone, and it clearly reveals some specifications of the device which confirm it to be indeed a Xiaomi Mi MIX Nano.

Xiaomi Mi MIX Nano Availability and Price Details in China, Nigeria, Kenya & Ghana
The Xiaomi Mi MIX Nano hasn’t been officially confirmed yet, but the possibility of such a smartphone being launched is very high. Since the standard Mi MIX and Mi Note 2 are not going to be launched outside of China, we don’t expect the Xiaomi Mi MIX Nano to also be launched anywhere apart from the company’s home country.
