Xiaomi is ripping off Apple AND Motorola

36 sec read

Xiaomi has risen to become one of the world’s top smartphone manufacturers thanks to a combination of clever marketing, unsustainable profit margins, and “borrowing” designs from Apple. But when Xiaomi isn’t blatantly ripping off the iPhone, it’s ripping off Motorola, as can be seen in a new version of the Chinese company’s Mi4.

Give Xiaomi credit — it’s willing to rip off lots of different sources and not just one. In this report on Lowyat.net, we noticed this picture of one version of Xiaomi’s Mi 4 whose rear panel bears a striking resemblance to the wooden version of the Moto X. Xiaomi has grown into a huge company by making phones with high-end specs that are both dirt cheap and bear a striking resemblance to other popular mobile phones on the market. The recently released Mi Note, for instance, features a 5.7-inch 1080p display, a 2.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor, 3GB of RAM, a 13-megapixel camera,a 4-megapixel front-facing camera and a 3,000 mAh battery, and it costs just $370 off contract.
