After the success of the USB iPhone, an engineer creates the first Android Phone with Lightning Port
A Ken Pillonel engineer was able to accomplish what Apple has yet not done, despite both regulatory and consumer pressures. He developed the first iPhone that has a USB C connector. It went on to be the most-priced iPhone ever sold on eBay. Pillonel created the world’s only Android phone equipped with a Lightning port to “balance out”. Details below.
World’s First Android Phone to Come with a Lightning Port
Pillonel shared a teaser for the world’s first Android smartphone using Apple’s Lightning port. He says that no one will ever do such a thing to their phone. This isn’t an upgrade. Pillonel claims that the project will be fun.
Modifying an Android smartphone, such as this Samsung Galaxy A51 equipped with a Lightning port was difficult. Pillonel stated and Engadget found that the hardest part was getting it all to work together.
“The Lightning cables Apple has made aren’t dumb.” The cables can only be used to charge Apple devices,” the engineer explained. The entire device must fit into the phone. That presents another challenge.
He claimed that the knowledge gained from his USB C iPhone project was what made it possible to start and complete this project. Below, Pillonel charges the modified Galaxy A51 by using Lightning cables. He also performs data transfers.
Pillonel claimed that modding the Android device with the Lightning port was easier than the first USB C iPhone. There are two reasons for this. He also said that the finished product’s quality is not as good as the iPhone.
Pillonel indicated that while the video below shows how the Lightning ports work on Android phones, he is currently creating an entire video about the project. This video will be published shortly. You can view the video via his YouTube channel.
