A shocking novelty in the form of an innovative smartphone Xiaomi Mi MIX Alpha brought many discussions. The new smartphone did not leave cool or people from competitive manufacturers. Richard Yu, director of Huawei, said that the device has no practical use.
It wasn't long before Xiaomi's reaction came.
No practical use?
Mentioned by Richard Yu of a competing Chinese company Huawei considers the smartphone to be a concept and that is why it does not see practical use in it. On the social network Weibo, however, the response from Xiaomi did not wait long.
Lu Weibing, vice president Xiaomi Group ironically, if the display around the device is not practical, what "practical" has is a brand of another brand for more than 10 yuan (about 1280 euros). Even such marketing wars happen from time to time in the technology world, and that's not all.
Lu Weibing on behalf of Xiaomi continued to explain the whole case on the social network for a few hours. It talks about the right to information that should be returned to users. Reportedly why a customer should pay for the "luxury" design of an expensive automobile manufacturer of tens of thousands yuan, if it has nothing to do with the brand.
He probably hinted at a luxury series of Huawei models, such as Huawei Mate RS Porsche Design with a high price of nearly 13 yuan.
It also says that the manufacturer should inform directly whether they use the design and brand of the luxury car manufacturer or use their own design, working with a luxury brand, eg. automaker. According to Xiaomi, this issue should not be ignored.
