Like the iPhone 5S, the Mi 4 features rounded corners on its metallic frame. Furthermore, the edges are brushed and smoothed in a similar way, giving the two phones a bit of a resemblance.
Not that this is bad. But in the past, Xiaomi has in the past tried to play down comparisons with Apple. While the Mi 4 probably won't help with that, the phone is definitely the most expensive-feeling handset the company has ever made. It should give rivals, including Apple, a run for their money.
The phone will start rolling out in China in limited quantities later this month.
