Apple's protruding camera is the butt of Xiaomi's joke

Apple's protruding camera is the butt of Xiaomi's joke
Even well before the Apple iPhone 6 had been introduced last September, we had seen a leaked picture of the device supposedly snapped by a Foxconn employee. The thing that stood out the most on a CAD image of the model, was the protruding camera on the back of the handset. The photos leaked by that employee proved to be the real thing. In other words, we got to show you what the iPhone 6 would look like a good 6 months before the phone was unveiled.

The protruding 8MP snapper is the subject of a new video joke produced by Xiaomi. The latter's recently announced Xiaomi Mi Note features a 13MP camera with OIS that is flush with the surface of the phone.

The video, starring Xiaomi president and co-founder Bin Lin, shows the protruding iPhone 6 camera getting hit with a frying pan until it turns into the flush rear camera on the Xiaomi Mi Note. You might not be rolling over with laughter, but the video got a great response when it debuted at Xiaomi's new product introduction last week. At that event, the Mi Note phablet was unveiled revealing its 5.7-inch 1080 x 1920 resolution glass, Snapdragon 801 CPU and 3GB of RAM. Also introduced was the Xiaomi Mi Note Pro with a 5.7-inch 1440 x 2560 resolution screen, 64-bit Snapdragon 810 CPU and 4GB of RAM.



Thanks for the tip!

I bet Apples sales numbers aren't the butt of Xaiomi's joke. Men lie, women lie, numbers don't. Jigga!

Xiaomi is on the right track, they are gaining so many haters as you can see in comment section, which is a nice thing to have in smartphone industry.

I'd rather own an iphone 4 but not a xiwawami.

Cool, but I'd rather own a Xiwawami instead of an iPone. We all have our own preferences, and I like Xiwawami.

Xiaomi's camera is horrible when it comes to the color reproduction...while iPhone's 8MP shooter is one of the most accurate smartphone cameras in the world! How pathetic xiaomi is...

Yep - bigger camera = better camera (with the same available tech). I really love that less than 1mm "ugly bulge" that makes some amazing pictures. They could go thinnet no problem look at iPad Air 2 and it's 6,1 mm non protruding camera you got 8 Mpix and wide apperture.... But just 1,12 micron pixel instead of 1,5 ( almost 80% bigger pixels) in the iPhone - a huge downgrade.

Everybody knows iPhone's camera is anything but accurate! It produces warm colors which is nice to look at but it's not accurate.

Xiaomi's Mi4 had a protruding camera too. Only in the new Xiaomi Note 2 they copied Huawei Honor 6 camera and saved the embarrassment.

Maybe you could try using copy and paste instead of embarrassing yourself with horrible spelling.
