Copycat who? Check our new products and talk again — Xiaomi
Despite selling a lot of devices (with more than 60 million smartphones shipped last year), one thing China’s Xiaomi is still troubled with is criticism. Yes, criticism. No matter how good the company sells, it is still reminded of how it copies Apple products to survive. This is a point that Apple chief designer Jony Ive has come out to make while labeling the Chinese tech company as copycats.
Right now, Xiaomi has joined the revolution and Vice President Hugo Barra thinks the company’s new products is state-of-the-art — unmatchable.
Speaking of the new Xiaomi Mi Note and Xiaomi Mi Note Pro the firm unveiled last week in Beijing, Barra to CNN, “I don’t think anyone is going to look at this product and say that it looks like anything that’s been designed by anybody else.”
“I think the conversation has now shifted to … where we’re talking about Xiaomi leading with new and innovative design. I think it’s pretty much the end of that copycat discussion,” the VP narrated.
Barra also explained that copying is important for anybody playing in the tech market, urging critics to come down to China and see things for themselves.
Xiaomi unveiled two Android-powered phablets on January 15, signaling the start of a new beginning in the company. The Mi Note Pro, for example, features a 5.7″ Quad HD JDI/Sharp screen, a top-notch Snapdragon 810 chipset, 13-megapixel Sony camera and 4GB of RAM. Despite all these the smartphone is relatively cheaper than an average flagship smartphone with its 64GB model launching at just $532.
