THE Xiaomi obviously admires Apple a lot. The Chinese company has already demonstrated this profound reverence for designs clearly inspired by Ma and even a CEO who looks like Steve Jobs' famous uniform. See, in print, tribute.
Today, the company has unveiled a number of new products that once again make this admiration clear. For example, take a look at the beautiful Mi Notebook Pro:
Especially if you cover the top and ignore the ultra-thin screen that visually differs from your twin's most traditional panel, the new Xiaomi creation is undeniably a great homage to the MacBook Pro. But of course, the Chinese uses this reference beyond bluntly just as a conversation starter to claim that their product is far superior to their source of inspiration; For example, the Mi Notebook Pro features two common USB ports, one HDMI output, one SD card slot and two USB-C ports, eliminating the need for multiple Ma competitor adapters.

You may already forget to load adapters simply because you know, we have everything!
In addition, as its inspiring muse, the Mi Notebook Pro features a fingerprint sensor and a motionless pressure sensor trackpad. The internal components are also reasonably similar, with Intel Core i5 or i7 processors, NVIDIA graphics chips and 8GB or 16GB of RAM. One drawback to the MacBook Pro is the screen here, we have a 15.6 inch panel and a mere 1080p. It costs far less than its counterpart, starting at $ 850, but at least for now it is only available in China.

In turn, the smartphone Mi Mix 2 Brings no clear reference to Apple's device design, but brings a screen with the same design paradigm that Cupertino's company introduces tomorrow, with the "iPhone X" although it is reasonable to say that Xiaomi has pioneered this trend , with the original Mi Mix.
The Mi Mix 2 features a striking design with a 5.99 inch near-to-end display and a ceramic body (surrounded by aluminum or unibodyin the case of the most expensive special edition). Inside we have 6GB of RAM, up to 256GB of storage, 12 megapixel rear camera and rear fingerprint sensor; The system is Android 7.0 “Nougat” with Xiaomi's own MIUI 9 adaptation. Ah, another Apple tribute we have here is, indeed, the lack of a headphone jack.
The Mi Mix 2 starts at 3,300 (~ $ 1,600) and is already available for sale in China, where it will be launched next 15th. According to the manufacturer, it will not be available in western countries so if you are interested, good luck with the importers.

Finally, we have the Mi Note 3It's a more “traditional” device that reflects Apple's admiration of Xiaomi rather than its cousin. Here we have a 5.5 inch screen, front biometric sensor, 16 megapixel rear camera and face recognition system; The design features two pieces of glass combined by an aluminum side (if it sounded familiar, it should not have been a coincidence).
The Mi Note 3 will be available in China starting tomorrow, starting at 2,500 (~ R $ 1,200).
