It seems Chinese device maker, Xiaomi, is taking its “Apple of the East” tag too literally.

First, their CEO brazenly copies Steve Jobs’ signature look, sitting cross-legged on the floor and everything.

And now, Xiaomi’s latest version of Android shamelessly rips off iOS 7.

MIUI 6, which is Xiaomi’s upcoming edition of Android for its latest phones and tablets, looks almost exactly like Apple’s operating system for iPhones, iPads and the iPod Touch.

It features the same bright color palette and a flat design. Heck, it even does away with Google’s “app drawer” and puts all apps on your home screen. It’s like the CEO handed iPhones to the design team and barked: “Here, copy this!”

Check out some comparison screenshots below — MIUI is on the left, iOS 7 is on the right — and judge for yourself. Then head over to Xiaomi’s official website for more.

Do you agree that the MIUI is a copy of Apple’s iOS 7?
