- New iPhone 14 Pro Max clones have been listed on Aliexpress
- They come in 2GB and 6GB RAM variants
- Price starts at just Rs 7,600 for the base variant
Want to pick up the iPhone 14 Pro Max, but worried about the steep price tag? Well, Aliexpress always has some alternatives for you. Exhibit A: the I14 Pro Max, an iPhone 14 Pro Max clone, which has been listed on the Chinese e-commerce platform for a fraction of what the original goes for.
Available for purchase globally, the I14 Pro Max has two listings (1,2) on Aliexpress (via Gizmochina) that reveal a design that looks eerily similar to the ultra-premium iPhone 14 Pro Max by Apple. In certain user review photos, the back of the smartphone has been lifted off from the Apple flagship with a similar, albeit smaller, triple rear camera setup. However, with a price tag of $89.69 (approx Rs 7,600) for the 2GB RAM variant and $126 (Rs 10,800 roughly) for the 6GB RAM model, it is probably futile to be disappointed.
And, did we tell you that this iPhone 14 Pro Max clone runs Android? Yeah, I mean there is no other option given Apple does not make available its iOS for open source boot loading. That said, the specifications listed on Aliexpress include a full-HD+ 6.5-inch AMOLED (!!) display with a 95 percent screen-to-body ratio and 120Hz refresh rate that, pardon us, we find really hard to swallow at that price.
Furthermore, the smartphone is claimed to come with face unlock, a MediaTek MTK6753 processor, 6GB RAM, 128 GB storage, 2800mAh battery, 8+16MP cameras, and dual SIM card support. Interestingly, the face unlock technology on the front looks narrower than even the Dynamic Island on the iPhone 14 Pro Max, which makes us wonder whether this seller on Aliexpress really did figure out a way to refine it further (not).
Just to be clear, we never condone these kinds of clones and advise you to stay away from such listings. Honestly, it is a matter of time before these clones are delisted from Aliexpress, and better to stay wary and be sorry after you repent such a purchase. It’s always best to buy the real deal, and if you are low on monies, may we suggest our list of the best Android smartphones on a budget?
