The iPhone 6 isn’t even official yet, but one Chinese company has already whipped up a functioning clone of Apple’s rumored smartphone. A hands-on video with an iPhone 6 knockoff called the Wico i6 was uploaded to YouTube today, offering a peak at what the real thing may look like when it hits the market later this year.
The plastic iPhone knockoff seen here looks pretty much identical to the dummy units floating around. The only difference is that this one also appears to be a working smartphone, and it’s running a pretty impressive copy of Apple’s own mobile operating system. The design is clearly based on leaked iPhone 6 schematics, though recent reports suggest the official version will replace those white stripes on the back panel with another material.
The actual iPhone 6 is expected to launch this fall, probably in September. Rumor has it Apple will release a 4.7-inch model first, followed by a larger 5.5-inch phablet. Beyond a bigger screen, the upcoming device will likely offer a faster processor, a sharper display and hopefully a larger battery. We’ll let you know as soon as we learn anything new about the iPhone 6, though for now you can check out the knockoff Wico i6 in the link below.
