The Xiaomi Mi S is expected to feature a 4.6-inch 1080p display, a Snapdragon 821 processor, 4GB of RAM, and 128GB of UFS 2.0 storage. It will come with a 2600mAh battery with Quick Charge 3.0 and will have a 12MP main camera and a 4MP front facing shooter. You might think since the Xiaomi Mi S will be featuring a small battery and display it will have a thin profile, but surprisingly, the dimensions of the phone puts its thickness at 8.2mm, its length at 128.3mm and width at 64.2mm.

A more detailed description of the specs says the main camera which is positioned at the top right corner with a dual LED flash beside it, is a Sony IMX378 sensor with PDAF, f/2.0 aperture, and an 80° viewing angle. The camera will be able to shoot 4K videos at 30fps and 1080p videos at 120fps.

    at 4.6 HD would be enough… get 1-2mm thicker and bigger battery…

    Finally something for the smaller hands…

  • I would love to see more high end small phones but something closer to 5 inches would be preferable to me. I tried the 4.6 inch Sony Xperia X Compact and found the screen to be a bit small for my eyes although it was easy to hold because of its compactness. I would like to see a 4.8 inch phone with minimal side bezels and a large battery. The Redmi 3 series, being a budget line, was a bit bulky and the Redmi 4 is way over weight at 158 grams, which is even heavier than the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge at 157 grams.

    It won’t happen IMO. If there was a sizable market for compact flagships more vendor would have make it. Even Sony doesn’t make them anymore.

    Especially in China which still is Xiaomi’s main market with a very very large margin people prefers at least 5 inch screen.

    They can make a compact 5 inchers though. Judging by the other phones like ZUK Edge and Nubia Z11 currently on the market, 66mm width and 132mm height is possible.

    Or 136.4 x 68.4mm for 5.2″ screen.
