Since 2020’s Pixel 5, Google hasn’t produced a flagship phone that is affordable, making it the last such gadget. However, a fairly unbelievable assertion has been made by a Chinese leaker.
Twitter insider, According to Digital Chat Station, Google is developing Neila, a “small-screen flagship,” under the code name. The machine-translated post from the leaker also implies that it would resemble recent Pixel phones in terms of design.

We don’t know anything else about this allegedly little Pixel, thus we would strongly encourage you to treat this claim with extreme caution. A few Pixel leaks have surfaced in recent months, but none of them indicate a diminutive flagship device.
However, a hypothetical Pixel Mini would have to make a number of concessions in order to be smaller than the Pixel 6. You should anticipate a battery that is smaller than the 4,500mAh capacity of the Pixel 6 because battery capacity is typically one of the most visible compromises. In order to achieve a smaller form factor, wireless charging and cameras could also be sacrificed (i.e. sensor size or the number of sensors).
Even yet, if Google is developing a pocket-sized phone, we hope it doesn’t go too far in that direction. Following weak sales, Apple recently discontinued the 5.4-inch iPhone Mini line, indicating that customers aren’t interested in going much smaller than the 6-inch threshold.
