Xiaomi explained why the Mi Watch copied Apple’s design, not Samsung
- Tram Ho
Xiaomi has just launched the Mi Watch smartwatch, which is also the first smartwatch to carry the Mi brand and run Wear OS. The Mi Watch has a rectangular face design, very similar to the Apple Watch. But why does Xiaomi copy Apple’s design and not Samsung’s design?
Xiaomi posted an article on Weibo, explaining why the Mi Watch has a rectangular face design instead of a circle.
There is no question that a rectangular screen can display more information than a circle screen of the same size. On a circular screen, the text or video will be cut off the corner. Compared to rectangular screens, they can display full information and that is why technology devices have rectangular screens.
Easier to read
Our eyes are accustomed to looking at a rectangular screen. From books, to billboards, to smartphone screens, rectangular displays are still more optimal for displaying text content.
Xiaomi also said that the rectangular screen helps make navigation better. With the rectangular display, users can easily navigate to the sides, up or down. MIUI-based OS Wear OS is also designed to navigate like that.
However, there is a leak that indicates that Xiaomi is about to launch a Mi Watch Pro with a circular screen. Quite ironic that Xiaomi thinks the rectangular screen is more suitable for smartwatches, but is preparing to launch a watch with a circular face. Let’s wait and see how Xiaomi will continue to explain.
