The iPhone 7 is still months away but the Chinese have already beat Apple to it, releasing a clone of the upcoming device even before launch. The clone is based onvarious leaked images and concepts we’ve seen over the last couple of months.
The device has been said to be a boring upgrade with only few changes coming. The rumored big changes are reserved for the iPhone’s 10th year anniversary next year but this hasn’t stopped the imitators from creating a working clone of the flagship. This isn’t the first time a clone will be seen before launch and it definitely will not be the last.
The 5.5″ iPhone 7 Plus is rumored to come with a dual-camera setup and this clone has that. The Apple logo seem to be where it should be. Even the repositioned antenna band is there to see. Of course, we do not know if the dual-camera setup actually works or its just there for show. People do fall for clones thinking they’re are buying the real thing but quite a lot of people intentionally buy cloned products.
The device will almost certainly run Android OS with a custom skin made to look like iOS. And yes, it will sell at only a fraction of the price of the real product. The image has no branding for now, it only says “Designed by TAIWAN Made in China.”
