The iPhone case offers a 5 inch – FULL HD AMOLED display , runs Android 7.1 Nougat which is powered by MediTek Helio P20 chipset. The variant starts with a price range of $189.
Well, if you are wondering of instead of spending $189 for case, the iPhone case house up extra 2SIM cards, memory up to 256 GB, with support of 3GB of RAM, NFC functionality, an IR blaster along with extra 2800mAh of battery with wireless charging.
Other than that, you not only get experience of Android along with iOS, the Rear Camera of the iPhone can be used as the front i.e the case has “rear camera display mirroring” allow user to take the selfies from the rear camera for enhanced selfie experience.
Additionally, the case adds a 3.5 headphone jack, features an always-on display, so not dependent to iPhone lightning jack for earphone and promise of 2 year OS update.
Other than all of that, the extra battery of 2800mAh can also be used as to charge the iPhone but on the other hand, the case also needs the power to run its own feature. Well, over that, the designers promise a power drain of just 1% for an hour which is pretty good.
