Fake iPhone 4 comes with TV Tuner

There are gazillions of knock-off phones out in the market but this iPhone 4 look-alike is the latest one we’ve seen that got our attention — a fake iPhone 4 with a built-in TV tuner and pull-out antenna.

The knock-off iPhone 4 is the property of MB Technews and was recently acquired in Hong Kong for an equivalent of about Php3,800.

The user interface borrows the same sliding panel as the iPhone 4 and the icons are pretty much similar. However, the quality of the display screen quickly gave it away. The body is all plastic instead of the glass and aluminum construction of the real one.


The resistive screen is a little hard to use but there’s a long antenna you can pull-out when playing over-the-air TV channels. Tried tuning to a couple of channels but the reception was really bad.

Can’t really remember all the features but best one is that it’s dual-SIM.

    hopes it will be sold here later. Hopefully later revision would have an IPhone body, Android OS, TV Tuner, dual sim, larger memory & expansion, and a capacitive touch screen.

    nice! can’t wait to see in mrt some fat sosyalera using her real iphone4 and besides her is a construction worker pulling out his fake iphone to watch tv… oha?!

    and more reason for a snatcher to think twice… maybe his clue is that the real one has a rubber casing saka hindi ginagamit pantawag… nyehehehe!

    minus pogi points to all iphone4 fanbois… nauna pa sa pinas ung fake!

  12. Onnies says:

    @Anonymous1 apart from the obvious reason that this one doesnt cost a leg and an arm, may tv tuner pa, tsaka dual sim? i think the word here is being practical and affordable…i dont mind about the item being fake or original.

  13. pabs says:

  18. Von says:

    Where can I buy this? Baka bili ako ng 6 units. May discount kaya kung maramihan orders?

    Also, ano-ano features ang kaya/nde kaya gawin ng fake iPhone 4 versus the orig iPhone 4?

  19. mr.bogus says:

    dahil lang naman sa tv kaya nagkakandarapa sila bumili nito.. well natitpid ang tao ehh.. well buy fakes…!!!!! help china`s economy!!!

    walang bago dito yung case lang kasi mukhang iphone 4 pero ang mga piyesa pareho lang sa mga old models..

  20. chack9 says:

    @mr bogus – help china’s economy kung fake? help u.s. economy kung orig.. either way pano naman philippine economy?

    TriQuint TQM676091 chip which is available in the iphone4 was also in the 2nd gen iphone.

    Apple 343S0499 – Texas Instruments Touchscreen controller – basically a revamped old version from the 3Gs.

    some people just want the same or roughly the same functionality as the real thing. noone here can say they only own all original things. especily if you live in the philippines. might be a shirt, a pair of shoes, slippers, an mp3 player – these things have their own fake counterparts.

    it’s all about business and trends. take up a business lesson before commenting. whatever sells, whatever’s popular are usually the ones who are copied first.

  21. Chad says:

    For practical reasons okay yung wifi and tv when you’re in the mall, but may versions nito na walang tv according to kensgadget and jackstoys, but sa OS mas super fast ang response ng M002L model at HTC W007 na chinaphone you could try looking for it sa youtube and check the features.

  22. jejedad says:

    ke orig na iphone4 or fake yan, pareho lang made in china ang mga yan, ano nginangawa nyo?

  23. Bert says:

    Fake or real… all made in China.. :D

  24. iPhone China says:

    Yes even original iPhone 4 are made in China….kasi halos lahat ng semicon production facilities ay nasa China na lahat. So yung mga intsik na katulad ko he he (one half lang naman ako he he) ay pinagkokopya yang mga smart phones na yan! Di bale kahit poor na katulad ko ay pwede nang makabili ng iPhone 4 kahit peke. May tinda rin ako pero walang motolite ang battery eh….sorry…he he he

PLEASE REPLYYYYYYYYYYYYYY THANK YOU, one more thing, when i asked for the iphone 4, they tooked it from the table bottom, and there was no iphone 4, in the that.. echh dunno how it calling, in that glass wall, lol, when the phones showing for costumers, so REPLY PLEASE!
