US, WASHINGTON (ORDO NEWS) — Xiaomi founder and CEO Lei Jun, it turns out, does not neglect the competitors’ smartphones. Namely, Apple, whose gadgets have always been inspired by the engineers of the Chinese manufacturer.
Subscribers of his account on Weibo social network caught Jun using iPhone. This service, like Twitter, for example, indicates from which device the publication was made. Imagine the surprise of Xiaomi fans when the next entry in the Weibo of the head of the company was made with the iPhone:
Jun quickly caught on, deleted his post about new interesting books and published it again, already from the last flagship device of Xiaomi. Nevertheless, readers managed to take screenshots incriminating the founder of the company.
There were those who treated Jun’s puncture with understanding. “If the owner or product manager of the smartphone manufacturer claims that he is not trying Apple or Samsung products, this is either hypocrisy, or incompetence, or indifference to the quality of the product and advanced technologies,” Gizmochina quotes one of the users in the discussion of the incident.
iPhone in China is a symbol of status not less, but often more than in other countries of the world. Many top managers of the smartphone industry are not shy about using Apple devices, including Richard Yu, the head of Huawei’s consumer electronics division, and Sky Lee, CEO of Realme.
