We have written about in the past Xiaomi's three most popular phones. We are talking about Lei Junovi, a charismatic manager who, in addition to falling in love with the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 design, revealed what his favorite phone was before the Xiaomi brand was founded.
Many may not even know him
In 2009, Lei Jun ignored the trends of the time. The company 's founder also rejected devices such as iPhone 3GS or BlackBerry 8520. He opted for a less traditional phone called Palm Pre. It is a device with a slide-out keyboard and the Palm webOS operating system.
The phone has a 3,1 inch display with a resolution of 320 x 480 pixels. Leading features of the Palm Pre include wireless charging. It was a very revolutionary and advanced technology at the time.
As the founder himself admits, the Palm Pre was an incredible phone with a wireless charging function. This device contributes to the popularization of wireless charging, which has undergone great progress over the years.
In the past, wireless charging was very slow and also expensive. Every new smartphone with this feature had a very high price. On the contrary, today we can find various wireless charging technologies on the market, which are many times faster than cable charging alone.
Lei Jun went in his own direction from the very beginning. For which we are very grateful, because that is why the Xiaomi brand is so very successful today and continues to grow.
