Xiaomi is called "Apple of the East". I don't understand what is the meaning of "Apple of the East". There's no "Apple of the West". I guess the term has some relationship with Bible. Thanks!

    Apple is a very successful Western (American) technology company. Xiaomi, an Eastern (Chinese) technology company is compared to Apple here.
