Xiaomi has managed to woo audiences in most markets it is present and has become a well known brand in India too. Apart from offering products at affordable prices and conducting flash sales, one of its striking ability is its zest to become the next Apple. In the bid to becoming the next Apple, the company has been replicating its products. Adding to the long list of ‘Apple-inspired’ features/products, the next is said to be 3D Touch.

Citing a tipster on Weibo, a GforGames report reveals that Xiaomi has patented a technology that is almost similar to 3D Touch. Apple introduced the all new 3D Touch, a pressure-sensitive display, this year. It helps recognise not just taps and presses, but also deep press. It will come with three different types of input support, reportedly the reason why it is being called ‘3D’ display. So, don’t be surprised to see the feature in the next Xiaomi phone.

It’s not just Xiaomi, even Samsung is looking to deploy the feature. While Samsung plans to utilise Synaptics’ touchscreen controller, Xiaomi could either do the same or build a new technology altogether, adds the report.

Xiaomi’s decision to rip-off the Touch 3D doesn’t come as a surprise. As we’ve seen in the past, Xiaomi has gone the extra mile to imitate Apple. In fact, CEO Lei Jun is also known to copy Steve Jobs’ trademark blue jeans and black turtle neck shirt. The MIUI OS looks just like the iOS. For instance, the new MIUI 6 is almost similar to iOS 7.

From Sapphire Glass to Macbook-like laptops, there are reports indicating more Apple rip-offs on the way. After all, Xiaomi enjoys being called the ‘Apple of China.’

This is the reason why the company received flak on complaining about counterfeits cannibalising its sales numbers. All said and done, Xiaomi was getting a taste of its own medicine. However, if recent reports are to be believed, then Apple has for the first time overtaken Xiaomi to become the largest smartphone vendor in China, which is one of the world’s largest markets.
