With the release of iPhone 6 still two months away, Chinese counterfeiters can’t seem to wait. iPhone 6 is now available in China and according to a reliable French publication, everywhereelse.fr, the specification is about the same as that of Apple iPhone 6. The first working counterfeit, Wico i6 looks almost like a real Apple product.
The hands-on video by 86Digi appeared on Youtube days ago and the UI was even cloned to looked almost like iOS 7. This is in fact a modified version of Android 4.4 Kitkat with a customized launcher.
The counterfeiters paid attention to details and even included FCC branding at the back of the phone including the customary Apple logo. If features a 4.7 inch display though its obvious the quality isn’t the same as that of an iPhone. But for a fake, it’s a job well done.
