“Drool, geeks!” Those were TMZ’s instructions on Friday when it published exclusive photos of what it claimed to be Apple’s next-generation iPhone 6. The only problem, however, is that the photos didn’t show Apple’s upcoming iPhone 6 at all. Instead, they’re just another handful of images of a well-known iPhone 6 clone running Android underneath an iOS 7 skin.
“Tech geeks may want to take a hit off their inhalers and brace themselves … because TMZ has obtained possible pictures of Apple’s brand spanking new iPhone 6,” TMZ wrote in its post. “We’re told the phone was smuggled out of a Foxconn factory in China … where the majority of iPhone models are manufactured.”
Of course, the phone pictured in the exclusive photos obviously wasn’t smuggled out of any Foxconn factory. Instead, it’s the same iPhone 6 clone we’ve seen a dozen times in photos and in this extensive video.
