Fake iPhone 5 On Sale in China


iphone 5 available chinaThe latest rumor is that the iPhone 5 MAY ship at the end of September, but the impatient Shenzhen guys have jumped the gun again and already launched an iPhone 5 clone!

 

Update 3: 5 Places you can buy an iPhone 5 clone.

Update 2: White iPhone 5 Clones on sale for $47

Update! Hands on video of the iPhone(y) can be seen here.

It’s not the most awe inspiring clone, to us at least, we’ve seen and, but it does look to follow the shape those leaked iPhone 5 case designs pointed at.

The body is a very thin, 7mm!!! black plastic affair with the usual iPhoney (comedy drum roll) cameras, LED flash, plus controls for power and volume.

iphone 5 64gb
Take those markings with a pinch of salt

The rear of the iPhone 5 knock off states its a 64Gb model, something which we highly doubt, and also has all the FCC and safety markings you would expect on a real Apple product, only in this case they mean absolutely nothing!

iphone 5 launch date
Why wait for the iPhone 5 to come when you can buy this fake now?

For 699 Yuan ($108) you get also get a JAVA based OS, MP3 and MP$ playback and WI-Fi.

    So for the real thing, kinda like an iPhone 4, full metal border, slightly rounded off corners, bit of a taper and an edge-to-edge screen?

    I’m cool with that.

    Obviously this knock-off crap isn’t going to have the posh, expensive screen and the overal quality of finish, but the general implications I think make for quite a nice looking (and ergonomic!) phone.

    And then I can finally retire my 3GS to being the kitchen iPod full time

    I don’t think I like it. It just doesn’t seem to look right. Okay it’s a clone and I’m sure the real thing will look better but I still don’t know if I like it. I don’t like how they’ve gone back to the curves of the original iPhone and 3G/S, feels like a whole step backwards tbh.

      I know what you mean. Perhaps if it was machined alloy like the back of an iPad?

    What if the back was curved glass, rather than plastic. That’d be nice, huh?

    • August 2, 2011

      That would be great! Perhaps when the cloners have their game faces on they’ll up the details?

    Now with much better antenna!

    Also now working daylight saving (clock).

    But too low price, 599 dollars sounds better.

    • August 4, 2011

      Ah you are right! Someone forgot to add the Apple tax 🙂
