XTR, 18 Nov 2016When 4 incher was the norm and a 5.5 incher was a hideous abomination that people look at with... moreDon't kid yourself 5.5 inchers are still a hideous -hard to use/carry- abomination when it's coupled with giant bezels (iphone plus, pixel XL). The human hand hasn't become bigger in the meanwhile
This phone would be close in size with age old 4 inchers than iPhone Plus though.
For example my Samsung Galaxy S (the original) is 122x65mm and it was only 4 inches
This one is projected to be 133x70mm
By comparison iPhone Plus is 158x78mm (a 5.5 incher).
Screen size tells only half the story. This phone would be mini because it would be really pocketable. It's closer to 4 inch phones than it is to 5.5 inchers (in total size).
DC, 18 Nov 2016But it doesn't, it's as big as 6 inch phones like Motorola nexus 6. Xiaomi Mi MIX is 82.9 mm a... moreIf it keeps the same Screen to body ratio 133x70 more like ... which is significantly smaller than most 5 inchers ... it closes iphone's size (4.7 inch version).
frbk, 18 Nov 2016member when 4.0 was consider Mini (or Nano) and 5.5 a phablet? I memberWhen 4 incher was the norm and a 5.5 incher was a hideous abomination that people look at with a funny smile.
This device sure is something to look forward to, the tech behind having no front earpiece speaker is fantastic.

This is why Android is the best. Tons of brands with tons of models to choose from. Metal for you, glass for me, everyone is happy :)
Pulak, 18 Nov 2016Pixel "XL" = 5.5inch = Mi Mix "Nano" Level LOL exceeded!!5.5inch isn't XL at all only dumb people call it 'big'
I hope the Nano uses metal which is more durable compared to the ceramic used for its big brother. This trend of using glass and even ceramic on high end phones need to go away, they may look pretty but they're certainly not durable as metals.

Pulak, 18 Nov 2016Pixel "XL" = 5.5inch = Mi Mix "Nano"
Level LOL exceeded!!Mi Mix nano will be smaller than Nexus 4.
So yeah, it's aptly named. Pixel XL has gigantic bezels which is why it is named as such. XL stands for eXtra Large bezels. IPhone Plus's android brother...
Anonymous, 18 Nov 2016830 is around the corner and why would people buy 821?Around the corner means near at release date, means no mass production available yet. So it's depending on what development phase that device currently in. If the device is still in early phase, then maybe they can wait for 83x. But if they do is just scaled down the physical size, I don't think they should wait that long just for 83x when 82x is already fast enough.
Anonymous, 18 Nov 20165.5 = Nano -> Ultimate LOL. Next step: 9,7 phone = PicoIt has no bezels so it will be as small as an iPhone. Still not a nano, more like a phablet in the size of a regular phone.
Anonymous, 18 Nov 2016830 is around the corner and why would people buy 821?caus' people is here, not around the corner. btw, they buying 6xx SD serires also. not talking about 4xx that also on the market.
If 6,44" have similar size to normal 5.7, this one can be smaller than 5". That's reason to call him Nano.
