A Redmi Mini might be in development, hints the company’s GM


In a time when phablets have become mainstream, small phones such as the iPhone 12 Mini are clear outliers to the norm. While their market size is debatable, they do have a certain appeal. However, if you’re an Android user, the number of compact options are few and far between.

Till a few years ago, many phones would come with a smaller counterpart for those who really prefer one. Over time, such ideas were abandoned owing to the corners that had to be cut to achieve a smaller footprint. It seems like Redmi wants to try its hand at making a ‘mini’ phone once again.

Lu Weibing, Redmi’s General Manager in China, took to Weibo to talk about the development. He shared “Redmi wants to produce a mini, but the battery capacity/life will be sacrificed a lot…”. No further information about the product was shared apart from this vague statement, making it unclear if he is teasing an upcoming product or just thinking out loud.
