The Xiaomi Mi MIX is apparently ready to get a model derived from it, known as the Nano. It recently leaked via a few comparative shots between the two models and now the Xiaomi Mi MIX Nano appears in the image below, showing off its “About Phone” screen.
The “Nano” bit comes from the fact this is the smaller version of the Mi MIX, that has a 6.4 inch diagonal and this one only goes with a 5.5 inch screen. It adopts a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 CPU, clocked at 2.35 GHz, plus 4 GB of RAM, 64 GB of storage and MIUI 8 on top of Android Marshmallow. Meanwhile, the Mi MIX had a 6.4 inch edgeless display, a Snapdragon 821 CPU and 4 or 6 GB of RAM.
It also got up to 256 GB of storage. The Nano appeared on Weibo and the intention of Xiaomi seems clear here. While the Xiaomi Mi MIX has a ceramic body that’s pretty hard to manufacture and it’s available in a limited edition, the Nano will be easier to manufacture if it ditches the ceramic build, as rumored.
