(Yicai Global) Nov. 10 -- After finishing his daily exercise routine at 7 a.m., Jason Yun opened Weibo (China’s Twitter) on his iPhone 7 Plus and started to check friends’ posts. One was a video starring Benedict Cumberbatch that mocked the US presidential candidates.
Yun watched and laughed. He then tapped WeChat’s familiar green double-callout icon and sent the video -- ‘The Story of the 2016 US Presidential Election’ -- to his best friend Qing Qin in California. “Watched this under Wi-Fi conditions J,” he texted.
(Yicai Global) Dec. 2 -- As he had done for the past few years, Xiao Mi devotee Pan Hui opened the official Mi Home WeChat account on his phone to get in line for the long-awaited Mi Note 2 released the next day on Nov 3.
During the release ceremony for the Note 2, released at the same time as the Mi Mix, Lei Jun, the founder of Xiaomi Inc. described the phone as “the mobile from the future.”
