On July 2, Xiaomi introduced new Mimoji feature when released the Xiaomi CC9. While a Chinese bloggers said that xiaomi Mimoji features is a copy of Applle’s Memoji. In response, the Xiaomi company has conducted a rigorous internal self-examination, and based on this, it is convinced that the Mimoji cute image has not carried out any plagiarism against other competitors, including Apple.

 

According to a query by the 21st Century Economic News reporter, on the afternoon of June 29, a Chinese Weibo blogger "Machine Girl" did send a Weibo message saying, "on the left is Apple's Memoji, and on the right is Xiaomi's Mimoji,." Then there are four comparative pictures below.

Xiaomi said in a statement, "I would like to invite the originator of this discussion @ machine girl, to help provide the release of the iPhone control group content sources, so that we can conduct internal self-examination." Because we can't retrieve the iPhone-related image displayed in Weibo from any public channel other than the one you posted on Weibo. "

 

At the same time, there are skeptical voices that whether anyone has used iPhone's "mimetic expression" manual editing function to create a similar image for Xiaomi's public Mimoji images, and then spread maliciously and rhythmically mislead the public.

 

Therefore, Xiaomi suggested that if the source of the content provided by the originator can prove that Xiaomi's Mimoji cute image has plagiarized the iPhone-related image, we will publicly apologize and strictly deal with it, including, but not limited to, the dismissal of those responsible. But if it cannot be proved, Xiaomi will pursue its legal responsibility through judicial channels for malicious rumormongers, those behind them, and irresponsible malicious communicators.

In the statement, Xiaomi also explained the differences between the cartoon characters of Mimoji and the related functions of iPhone. Xiaomi said Mimoji was the Mimeng app launched when Xiaomi 8 transparent Exploration Edition was released on May 31, 2018.

This time, after further upgrading the Mimoji, it is determined that it will be used on the upcoming Xiaomi CC9 series.

It is reported that the upgraded Mimoji sprout specially adds the design elements for oriental characteristics, and can automatically identify the features of users, such as facial features, glasses, skin color, hairstyle, etc., and directly generate thousands of original personality cartoons.

 

At present, Mimoji has originally designed 165 basic materials, combined with the user's personality selection, re-editing and re-adjustment of the shape and color of the material, which can combine hundreds of millions of different images.

 

However, the image of iPhone-related functions does not have the function of automatic generation, so it needs to be selected manually from the material library and squeezed out by manual editing.

 

Therefore, Xiaomi believes that the product basic logic of Mimoji functions is very different from that of iPhone-related functions.
