First iPhone 6 Clone Is Out Before The iPhone 6 Itself: Runs Android

/ 7 years ago


“Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery” is how the well known saying goes and that is always the case for Apple’s iPhone products. Whether you like them or not people love to copy or produce rip-off designs of Apple iPhone products and accessories. Apple’s iPhone 6 is yet to even be released but a copy has snuck its way out into the Chinese market already. The imitation iPhone 6, pictured above, is built based on design information and parts smuggled out of Apple’s Chinese manufacturing plants that are currently producing the iPhone 6. The imitation model runs a modified version of Android designed to imitate iOS. This clone even has a Touch ID ring around the home button, but it isn’t known if it actually works as a fingerprint reader. The clone also equips all the apps the iPhone 6 is expected to have including: Messages, Calendar, Photos, Camera, Weather, Clock, Maps, Videos, Notes, Reminders, Stocks, Newsstand, App Store, Passbook, Compass, Settings, Phone, Mail, Safari and Music.

Imitation models are certainly nothing that are normally newsworthy but given Apple’s iPhone 6 isn’t expected until early fall of this year I think the fact imitation models are already available is just incredible. Apple are expected to announce 4.7 and 5.5 inch variants of the iPhone 6. The iPhone 6 is to be made by Pegatron and Foxconn.
