The future of iOS is Android based. Already 90% of “iPhones” sold in China are Android copies. Chinese Smartphone factories already sell their 4.7″ “iPhone 6″ for only $77 running Android, thus support for a couple million Android apps, maybe someone ports all iOS apps to Android in the future. Anyways, this is thin and as Apple would do, it does not offer a removable battery, use Apple’s lightning connector instead of MicroUSB, it does have an internal MicroSD card slot though, but you need to use tiny screwdrivers to get to it. This copy configuration comes with a basic WVGA display, a very basic camera (extremely basic), and I think they cut a few more corners when itcomes to the CPU they use the entry-level MT6572 dual-core ARM Cortex-A7 with Mali-400 GPU, 512MB of RAM and a little bit of ROM. It is not guaranteed that the real iPhone 6 will look exactly like it, I think a Shenzhen smartphone designer used what he could find on the online rumor photoshop sites to make thisone. Apple is rumored to release iPhone 6″ with a 4.7″ and 5.5″ or larger display at some point later this year. The Apple factories are around China but the main ones are in Shenzhen I think, the same city in which I found this phone for sale for $77 (470RMB Chinese money). I think Android copies own 90% of iPhone market share in China (not to mention Android probably owns 98% of all Smartphones sold in China), because most Chinese consumers don’t like to and can’t be paying 10x more for the official real iPhone.
