Despite the abundance of domestic manufacturers in China, around 9.5% of all Apple smartphones produced are sold in China. And today it turned out that Lei Jun, CEO and co-founder of Xiaomi, occasionally uses the iPhone and not his own flagship devices, which are represented by Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro or Mi Mix Alpha.
Xiaomi's CEO uses iPhone: post deleted, but it's too late.
His recently published post, in which he recommends several books on the Weibo social network, enthusiastic Chinese users. Because the postal signature indicates which phone he was using: iPhone. This functionality is normally used by companies for information and teasers on upcoming smartphones. In this case, however, the post was suddenly deleted and republished by Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro.
Xiaomi partner Pan Jiutang appeared in defense of Lei. He explains this situation by the need to test competitors' devices. However, what is the reason for such a late review of the iPhone 11. The smartphone has been available for more than 7 months and why the post was republished – think for yourself.
It is worth noting that Xiaomi is constantly available for its advertising Devices and don't even hide the companies that inspire it – mostly it's Apple.
XIAOMI CEO DISCOVES HIS FAVORITE PHONE
Recall that Lei Jun recently mentioned the Mi Mix 2 with a ceramic finish as his favorite Xiaomi phone. The Mi Mix smartphone series from Xiaomi is known for its full-screen experience. The last phone in this family was Mi Mix 3. The 5G version didn't sell well. In addition, it has not yet received the update for MIU 11 and Android 10.
Xiaomi recently registered a new Weibo account for the Mix series, and now the CEO remembers the old Mi Mix 2 device as his favorite Xiaomi phone. All of this suggests that we could soon see a new smartphone from the Mix series.
Xiaomi announced a new device in the Mi Mix Alpha series a few months ago. However, it is a $ 2,600 concept smartphone that is not yet on sale. According to Lei Jun, we can expect the next Mi Mix device, probably the Mi Mix 4, to have a ceramic unibody design like its 2017 predecessor. Ceramic smartphones are not exclusive to Xiaomi. The Huawei P40 Pro + released a few months ago has it as well as the OPPO Find X2 Pro.
