The Xiaomi Mi 4 was released this month, being created by “Apple of China”. The real Apple will launch its new flagship on September 19, according to reports, and the war between the two giant companies will be more ferocious than ever. And that’s because Xiaomi is good at cloning Apple products.
Although we don’t have a confirmation yet for the specs and features of the iPhone 6, we can only suppose that the leaked information is reliable and we’ll use it to compare the Apple smartphone with the Chinese product.
Displays and Sizes
The iPhone 6 is expected to feature an LED-backlit IPS LCD display with 16M colors, a resolution of 960×1,704pixels and 416ppi. The device will be equipped with a shatter-proof sapphire crystal glass case and will be water resistant. The Mi 4 also has an IPS LCD display with 16M colors, a resolution of 1,080×1,920pixels and a higher pixel density – 441ppi. This phone is dust and water resistant, being IP67 certified.
According to GSMarena reports, both of the devices will have: 2G, 3G and 4G and their sizes are quite similar. The iPhone 6 is measuring 5.12×2.56×0.28inches and it weights 113grams, while the Mi 4 has the dimensions of 5.48×2.70×0.35inches and a weight of 149grams.
Hardware and OS
The iPhone 6 will be powered by a dual-core 2GHz CPU, coupled with an Apple A8 chipset and will run on the iOS8 operating system. The Mi 4 comes with a 2.5GHz Krait 400 CPU, which is backed up by a Qualcomm MSM8974AC Snapdragon 801 chipset, but it runs on the Android 4.4.3 (KitKat) OS. As for the internal memory – there will be three variants available for the iPhone 6 – 16, 32, 64 or 128GB. The Mi 4 has 16 and 64GB of internal storage, unexpandable. The Apple device has 2GB of RAM, while the Chinese product has 3GB of RAM.
It seems that the Mi 4 outpaces the iPhone 6 in terms of photo shooting, having a 13MP rear camera with 4128×3,096pixels, dual-LED flash and autofocus. The iPhone 6 is “blocked” at the same 8MP rear camera – as its predecessors, having features such as 3,264×2,448pixels, dual-LED flash & autofocus. Both of the devices have video recording capabilities at 1,080p@60fps and 1,080p@30fps.
Both of these smartphones have non-removable batteries. However, the iPhone 6 has a Li-Po 1,850mAh battery, whereas the Chinese smartphone has a Li-Ion 3,080mAh battery.
