[VIDEO] “iPhone 5” Runs Android 4.2 Before Galaxy Nexus!

By  | 

Apple has received a great deal of criticism for failing to be innovative with the Apple iPhone 5 and iOS. However one thing that you cannot criticize is the design of the handset. The Apple iPhone 5 is sleek and it is very light, with a beautiful body and there are not many Android handsets that can rival it in this regard.

iPhone 5 knock-off runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean

The Apple iPhone and iOS is a great deal more restrictive than Android Jelly Bean 4.2. while this does mean that iOS is more stable and it is easy to use, this is one of the main areas of criticism and the reason why the Apple iPhone is said to be the most basic of high end devices on the market.

However there is a company in China who has just revealed a knock off iPhone which has Android 4.2 Jelly Bean running inside what looks exactly like the iPhone 5. The majority of knock off handsets have specs that compare with only the very cheapest of Android devices and the fact that this has Android 4.2 is shocking given that many carriers have yet to even roll that update out the Samsung Galaxy Nexus!

This iPhone 5 KIRF is different than the real deal as it comes with a display of 4 inches IPS with resolution of 1136 x 640. It has a quad core processor of 1.6GHz, supports GSM, WCDMA, has a camera of 8 megapixels rear and 1.3MP front, and runs on Android Jelly Bean 4.2 with Photo Sphere and Gesture Typing.

To look at the handset you would think it was an Apple iPhone 5 and you can get it in black or white. The 64GB version of this fake iPhone 5 comes with free worldwide shipping and has a price tag of $282 when you get it from China eCarts. This happens to be a lot lower than what you would have to pay out for the Apple iPhone 5, or for just about any Android device with a quad core and the latest Jelly Bean OS.
