When you are the CEO of a major smartphone brand, you are at least expected to use the phone of your company for daily use. But as we have seen previously, that’s not always the case. This time around, Xiaomi’s CEO Lei Jun has been caught using an iPhone.
Xiaomi is gearing up to launch the world’s smartphone with a 108MP camera next month on November 5. Along with that though, the company will also launch its Apple Watch clone which will probably be called the Mi Watch. Photos of the smartwatch have leaked which shows a design that is very similar to the Apple Watch.

Xiaomi has been borrowing quite a lot of stuff from Apple’s playbook. The Chinese company recently launched the CC9, a phone aimed at young users.

Foldable phones are going to be all the rage in 2019.

Xiaomi has come a long way from the days of blatantly ripping off the design of Apple’s products and then launching a cheaper version of it in China. But every once in a while, the company reminds us of how it started by launching a product that will look very similar to Apple’s offering. This time around, the company has launched its own AirPods competitor: the AirDots.
Xiaomi, which has primarily been known for copying the design of Apple products in its initial years, today unveiled the Mi 8, its latest budget flagship. After skipping the Mi 7 last year, the Mi 8 is Xiaomi’s flagship handset for 2018 and it has been launched on the occasion of the company’s eighth anniversary. And just like its previous Mi flagship handsets, the Mi 8’s design is very similar to that of the iPhone X.
