In China, the famous electronics market in the heart of Shenzhen city, Guangdong province, China has recently boomed a new service. It’s refurbishing old iPhones to make it look like the new iPhone 12 launched by Apple.
According to some reports, this new business service is very booming. In essence, it is peeling off the back of the old iPhone, then inserting a new back with the same design as the new iPhone 12 models.
There are a lot of iPhone 12 backs sold here every day and supply always exceeds demand. There’s also a complete industrial chain that can transform old iPhones into new iPhones 12.
On behalf of your back, your phone will look just like an iPhone 12.
Some merchants here revealed that any model can be exchanged for iPhone 12, iPhone X alone costs 450 yuan (about 1.5 million dong), iPhone 11 is 350 yuan cheaper (about 1.2 million dong). Flat cables are more expensive and the ones without cables are cheaper. Due to the different camera cluster positions, the imaging functionality of some mobile phone models may be affected after a new case is replaced, for example being able to use only one camera lens.
It can be said, for 100 to 500 yuan, your old phone will be transformed into the newest iPhone. This technology is considered a lucrative new piece of cake for merchants in Hoa Cuong Bac, because just create a few models of the back of a new iPhone and then insert the old device.
In fact, before Apple released the iPhone 12, the accessories prepared for this series were rampant selling in Hoa Cuong Bac. Since the beginning of last month, merchants have flocked here from all over to buy the glass backs, screens and cameras of the iPhone 12, which are essential components for the aforementioned “magic change service”.
The old phones have been turned into iPhone 12.
On social networking platforms, photos disguised as the new iPhone 12 from iPhone XR, iPhone 11 and other phone models have been spread, attracting a large number of netizens.
“With this cheap way, my iPhone 11 won’t have a problem for another two years!” Commented one user.
