iPhone 6 clone hands-on video gives us our best look yet at the next Apple device

Screen Shot 2014-07-24 at 23.37.30

We’ve all seen leaked images and videos showing off prototype dummies and physical mockups of Apple’s next big hit. We’ve even seen a torture test of the sapphire crystal glass display. But we’re yet to see a device actually power on and work. And while this video isn’t an actual iPhone, it’s the closest thing we’re going to get to a working iPhone 6 hand- on video before the official launch takes place in September.

Tech vlogger, Danny Winget got his hands on a device called the Wico6. Its hardware design is almost exactly the same as the iPhone 6 leaks we’ve seen so far. But it’s in the software department that the device shows how interesting it really is. It’s running a very heavily customised version of Android. It’s a little different to the more well-known GooPhone series of Android-powered iPhone lookalikes. The finishing software touches are lot closer to the real thing than GooPhone’s designers have managed so far.

Its theme is designed to look and perform almost exactly like iOS. Everything from the icons on the home screen to Notification Center and Control Center works exactly as it should. There are some differences in typeface and font styling, but on the most part, it’s the closest thing to an iPhone (that isn’t an iPhone) that I’ve seen to date.

What do you make of this Wico6? Would you ever buy an iClone?

    Wow! That Wico6 was an amazing copy of the iPhone! Apple had better watch these counterfeit devices. Thanks for sharing Danny Winget’s video with us, Cam.

    Many lag. Much scroll. Very bugs. Wow.

    Time to flash a custom ROM :D

      Then it’ll be an “iPhone” running stock Android… Oh, don’t expect many critical updates for this thing, either. I also wouldn’t trust any critical personal information on this thing. China WILL own you!

    With the new iPhone 6 coming out I better sell my old iPhone 6 before the value of it drops. I usually search 8-11 different sites to find the best offer, but I just found this company that compares all the buyback companies in one spot, it’s called RecomHub.

    It’s like Kayak but for electronic devices that show you all the offers in one spot.
