Xiaomi's New Smartphone Looks Just Like The iPhone 7 Plus

A case of "looks like me, but it's not me."

  • After months of anticipation, Chinese smartphone manufacturer Xiaomi has unveiled its new flagship smartphone

    • The device, called the Mi A1, was launched at a press event in India with the tagline of "created by Xiaomi, powered by Google."

      It's also the company's first Android One device, meaning it runs on stock Android software without any modification.

  • The 5.5-inch Mi A1 features a sleek metal body. Under the hood, it runs on a Snapdragon 625 processor with, 64GB of internal storage and 4GB of RAM.

    • A fingerprint sensor can be found at the back of the metal body, which also houses a 3,080mAh battery.

  • It also sports a dual-lens 12-megapixel rear camera and five-megapixel front camera. If that sounds familiar to you, well, Xiaomi has this to say:

    • It appears that the "Apple of China" isn't too shy to admit who inspired the construction of its latest smartphone this time around.

      Apart from the screen size, metal body, and dual-lens camera, the Mi A1 comes in three colours: black, gold, and rose gold. The iPhone 7 Plus comes in these same colours as well.

  • Word has it that the Mi A1 will be released here in Malaysia later this month

    • Xiaomi confirmed to Lowyat.net that the smartphone can be purchased online and over the counter at retail stores.

      The Mi A1 will be sold at 14,999 rupees (RM991) in India. Xiaomi has not revealed the official pricing for Malaysia.
