Xiaomi is reportedly working on an iPhone SE killer, a 4.3-inch handset with impressive specs for its pricetag.

The Apple iPhone SE has renewed interest in smaller handsets, but it’s not alone in targeting this market. Xiaomi is reportedly working on a 4.3-inch handset that will go toe-to-toe with the iPhone SE.

The Xiaomi handset, tipped to be the Mi 5 mini, is said to feature a 1,280x720 pixel, 4.3-inch display, a Snapdragon 820 processor, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage and a 13MP camera.

For the sake of comparison, Apple’s iPhone SE clocks in at 4-inches, has a 1,136x640 pixel screen, Apple’s A9 processor, 2GB RAM, 16GB of internal storage, and a 12MP camera.

The new Xiaomi phone will cost around $276, according to GizChina. The only proof of this new phone however is a blurry photo, so don’t get too excited about this possible handset just yet.
