Lu Weibong, who is the president of Xiaomi Group China and the CEO of Redmi, posted a poll on his page on whether fans want a new flagship with a small screen.
It is very difficult to make a flagship phone with a small screen. This is a “space battle in an extremely small space” game.
Usually, the company conducts such polls when the decision to release such a smartphone has already been made, in order to warm up public interest. In the comments, users write one after another that they hope for the release of a new flagship with a small screen from Xiaomi.
Recently, an insider under the nickname Digital Chat Station published information about the preparation of a Xiaomi smartphone with a 6.3-inch screen, which will be equipped with the flagship platform of the Snapdragon 8 series. Moreover, he added that we are not talking about the Lite line.
Some Chinese media directly refer to this unknown model as Xiaomi 12 mini and Xiaomi 12 SE.
