iphone 6

TMZ is super, super happy with its “unique” news on the iPhone 6 today, as is clear by its ridiculous headline and rich short article that says to the story of a previous Foxconn employee heroically contraband the extremely anticipated gadget of manufacturing. As you would certainly get out of TMZ, there are a lot of rough images to accompany this.

The only problem is that they don’t have pictures of an iPhone 6. It’s an Android phone.

First, allow’s take on a number of the images of the supposed Apple device and do some sleuthing. We’ll start with this:

I see a “lock” button that’s been relocated to the side of the device. Fair sufficient, given the bigger size. But exactly what’s with the SIM Card door? It’s not also flush with the phone’s structure. That, alone, is a dead free gift that it had not been constructed from an Apple layout. Apple does not develop something that doesn’t mesh, and we’re reminded of that actually every time it releases a brand-new tool.

Next, we’ll have a look at the front:

Once again we see that the SIM door is hugely misfitting, but consider the display itself. 5 icon rows on the brand-new 4.7-inch display? That doesn’t appear right, particularly thinking about that’s essentially a stock screenshot from iOS 7. However what ares more informing is the date icon.

Do you see that “13”? That isn’t the typeface that Apple makes use of for the date icon, it’s high also thick. If you shift your focus to the text made use of for each and every icon you’ll see that they have decline shadows which, once again, aren’t offer in either iOS 7 or iOS 8.

Exactly what we have here is an Android phone spruced up in an iPhone exterior, running a heavily customized version of Android 4.2.2. I recognize this due to the fact that a Redditor uploaded pictures of an incredibly comparable tool– total with the iPhone 6 box viewed in the TMZ photos, and operating on Android– which was bought by a Mandarin knockoff homeowner:
