February 08, 2021 / 09:59 AM IST

Apple iPhone 12 mini garnered quite some attention for its powerhouse performance in a compact form factor. Enthusiasts have been wondering an Android equivalent that could compete against the Apple iPhone 12 mini, which has a 5.4-inch display. A new report claims that Asus Zenfone Mini is tipped to launch very soon with a screen smaller than 6-inch in size.

According to a DigiTimes report, the Taiwan-based tech giant is working on a compact smartphone called the Zenfone Mini. The report does not mention the screen size but states that it will be smaller than the Asus 6Z’s 6.4-inch display. Another report from GizmoChina claims that the Zenfone Mini display size would be between 5.5-inch and 6-inch.

Moneycontrol could not independently verify the reports.

Other details of the smartphone are not known at the moment. However, speculations are being made that the Zenfone Mini will be a compact flagship. It is speculated that the device could come with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 SoC. However, considering the tiny form factor, the company could opt for a Snapdragon 700-series chipset or even the Snapdragon 870 SoC.
