digione-iphone-01Usually when it comes to accusations of who copied who, Apple is usually the company that is being copied in terms of their designs for smartphones, tablets, and computers, but in an interesting twist, it looks like one Chinese smartphone company is claiming that Apple has copied their design for the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus.

This is particularly interesting because you might recall the Lenovo Sisley S90 which looks almost like the iPhone 6 in terms of design and marketing, but it seems that Apple might have ripped off Digione’s design instead. The company claims to have sent Apple a letter in September to make them aware of a possible patent infringement for a patent that was granted to them back in July by China’s State Intellectual Property Office.

Apple seems to have not bothered with Digione’s claims which is why the Chinese company has published the letter they sent to Apple online in hopes of drawing attention to the issue and forcing Apple to respond. So far it doesn’t look like Digione will be suing Apple or asking for an injunction, but they are hoping that “communication with goodwill would contribute to solving potential legal disputes.”

That being said the company’s website for the handset also appears to have borrowed design elements from Apple’s own website, so we’re not sure who should be suing who at the moment. Either way we will be keeping our ears peeled for a response from Apple, but in the meantime what do you do guys think?
