Lenovo Forgets Its Identity While Creating Rip-Off Of iPhone 6
Apple’s iPhone 6 has already set fire to the mobile market where pre-sale orders have drained and delivery of the units have been postponed to 3-4 weeks. Prior to its launch in China this week, 20 million Chinese consumers have already booked themselves the iPhone 6, and there’s no way we can actually point out the exact figure of the flagship’s soaring success.
Once you’re good at something, you know you’ll be copied. But copied by a company which JUST unveiled its flagship smartphones? Lenovo, which is currently purchasing Motorola from Google, has come forward with a mid range smartphone which is a rip off of the iPhone 6.
Leaked via Weibo, the Lenovo Sisley has yet to be announced, but from the looks of it, it’s just like a carbon copy of the iPhone 6. In fact, if you removed the Apple logo from the iPhone 6 and replaced it with Lenovo’s brand, that’s what you’re getting as Sisley.
There’s no information about the processor yet, but what we have heard is that Sisley will come with a 13 MP rear camera and an 8 MP front camera offering, which means it might be one of those selfie phones that are taking over the market rapidly.
The screen will have a 5-inch display, with a 720p resolution so that’s something Lenovo decided to not copy from the iPhone 6. The lack of iPhone 6’s gorgeous Retina HD, however, will be compensated by its 6.9 mm thick body (we can only wait and watch which hashtag term will be used to describe the bending properties of this phone now).
Apple has always had copyright problems with Chinese firms which tend to launch cheap rip offs of Apple products locally and even globally. However, a multinational, established company copying off Apple’s flagship is plain.. weird.
Will you be willing to buy this cheap copy of the iPhone 6 by Lenovo? Let us know in the comments section below.
