Xiaomi Set to Rip Off Samsung’s Smartphone Design

Browse This Page

Xiaomi has made it no secret that it is ‘inspired’ by Apple’s design language. Across the Chinese company’s massive product range –  there are plenty of uses of white, mixed with the smooth silver aluminium finish. Now according to reports surfacing in China, Xiaomi is working on a smartphone with a dual curved edge display. Sounds familiar?

Samsung’s unique ‘edge’ design was first unveiled last year at IFA on the Note 4. The company introduced a one-of-a-kind design which stands out in the crowd for its unique screen, which extends and runs over onto the right side of the device. And if you’re thinking the curved panel is simply a marketing gimmick, you’re wrong.

The extended side screen is super functional as well – it has 7 scrollable panels which are customisable. When the smartphone is locked, the side-panel can be used to have a quick look at notifications and get faster access to certain features such as time and date display, flashlight, camera, messages and even a ruler.  Preferred apps can also be shifted to the side panel, frequent use of which will help users conserve battery life.

After the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Edge, S6 Edge and S6 Edge+ have also utilised this design.

According to the rumour, the upcoming ‘edgy’ Xiaomi smartphone features a 5.2-inch display with a 1440×2560 QHD resolution (565ppi). It is expected to be powered by a Snapdragon 808, hexa-core CPU and Adreno 418 GPU. With respect to availability and pricing – it may arrive in October priced around Rs. 26,000 (approx.) Xiaomi is not the only one, it has been reported that LG is also working on a similar design.

 Xiaomi has made it its business to bring high-end products at affordable pricing. The effort is appreciable by millions using their products, we’re just not sure if Samsung will be too happy to hear about this.

Nafisa Neymar expensive phones doesn't really have to be the best. Xiaomi offers the same specs that are on a 40-50k phone for a mere 20k. Companies like Samsung charge you double for the brand. If you are smart. Xiaomi is the best value for money brand. If you want to follow the herd. Samsung and apple are your choices.

Respect that Xiaomi got from consumers with the quality cheating, I believe it's high time for the company to start funding money into new ideas and being original. It's never late you no?

If antic says iPhone 6 plus and Samsung S6 edge+ are the best phone, well, they don't have any idea about phones. I have personally used iPhone and found it nothing but hype. Same for S6 edge. Those are nothing but show off machines. You can get better performance in much cheaper phones.
