New Delhi: A seller on eBay is selling an Apple iPhone X variant that buyers can’t wait to get their hands on. The smartphone is not just a simple device, but a specially modified version of the iPhone X that packs a USB-C port, instead of the usual charging slot that comes in Apple’s smartphones.
The smartphone is designed by a student named Ken Pillonel. On eBay, the listing of the specially crafted smartphone is titled ‘world’s first USB C iPhone’. In his blog and a YouTube video, robotics engineering student Ken Pillonel revealed the modification process.
He said that the complex process involved a USB-C to lightning port, followed by changing the Type-C male end to a female port. Finally, the apparatus was fit inside the iPhone X to make charging via Type-C possible. Using the modified cable, the modified Apple X is capable of charging and data transfers.
So far, hundreds of customers have bid for the smartphone, with the highest being $100,100 (roughly more than Rs 74 lakh). If you’re also planning to bid for a unique smartphone, then you can do the same by visiting the eBay portal.
The last date to place your bids is November 11. Pillonel’s 13-minute-long video shows the complete project starting from scratch, from concept to designing the custom iPhone X with a USB Type-C port. Also Read: Aadhaar Card Update: Here’s how to retrieve lost or forgotten Aadhaar number online
