Two days ago Lei Jun (CEO of Xiaomi) shared that the company was on track to sell 60 million smartphones in 2014. Earlier today, he on Weibo he sent out a post announcing the Mi4 (4G Enabled) black variant which is set for release on 28th October 2014 in China. The Xiaomi Mi4 64GB is expected to hit somewhere in mid November 2014 which means somewhere on the 15th or 16th of November. Xiaomi Mi4

The Xiaomi Mi4 will support only China’s 4G TD-LTE network bands which directly means that they will only be available on China Mobile. The Xiaomi Mi4 will sport a 5-inch full HD display screen, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 mobile processor, 3GB of RAM, 13MP primary camera, 8MP secondary camera and a 3080 mAh battery. Being on default, it will run a version of MIUI based on Android 4.4.3 KitKat OS. The Xiaomi Mi3 and the Redmi 1S were running Android 4.3 Jelly Bean out-of-the-box.

Jonathan Ive (Chief of Product Design at Apple.Inc) is not happy with the similarities seen in the Xiaomi smartphones but the handsets are managing to sell like hot cross buns.

I will stand a little bit harsh, I do not see it as flattery. When you are doing something for the first time, you do not know it is going to work. Frankly, you spend seven or eight years working on something, and then it is copied. Being honest I would say that the first thing I can think, all those weekends that I could have spend with my family at home, but did not. I think it is a pure theft and can be considered as lazy. Jonathan Ive

I need to see the context of the comment to respond,, but I think that there is simply an unnecessary light thrown on us. If you make a comment about the chamfer on the Mi 4 on [sic] which is where all the controversy comes from, it is the same. If you look at the iPhone 6, it has been using the design language that has been around for a while. The newly launched iPhone 6 is using design language that HTC has been using for 5 years now. You cannot claim full ownership of any kind of design languages in our industry.Hugo Barra

WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THIS ??  Is the Xiaomi Mi4 design copied from Apple in terms of the iPhone ? Does it really matter ??
