On Tuesday, Chinese smartphone manufacturer Xiaomi unveiled its newest smartphone: the Mi A1.

Billed as the company’s flagship dual-camera phone, the Mi A1 costs about $234 and is powered by Android One, a stock version of Google’s smartphone operating system built for lower-end phones. While the phone won’t be available in the US, it will be offered in more than 40 countries worldwide.

The design of Mi A1 may look a bit familiar — like if you took the iPhone 7 Plus, with its dual cameras, metal finishes and hidden-antenna design, but replaced the Apple logo on the back with a fingerprint sensor. Xiaomi itself even described the phone as “similar to iPhone 7 Plus.”

The similarities are even more obvious up close:

Xiaomi’s Mi A1 comes in three colors: black, gold, and rose gold. The iPhone 7 comes in these same colors, plus two more: silver, and jet black.

The Mi A1 phone has a 5.5-inch display — the same size as the iPhone 7 Plus display — and an entirely metal body, also like the iPhone 7.

Also like the iPhone 7 Plus, the Mi A2 features a dual-lens camera system comprised of a 12-megapixel wide-angle lens and a 12-megapixel telephoto lens.

Much like other high-end smartphone cameras, the Mi A1 has a “DSLR effect,” meaning it can blur out the background while keeping the subject in focus. Only the larger iPhone 7 Plus has this camera feature, which Apple calls “Portrait Mode.”

The camera seems to perform well in low light, too.

The Mi A1 uses USB-C charging, but perhaps the phone’s biggest difference with the iPhone 7 is the fact it has a headphone jack.

Xiaomi says the A1 has an “all-day battery,” but doesn’t say exactly how long the battery will last.
