Behold: The Jindallae 3. Designed and manufactured locally by North Korea’s Mangyongdae Information Technology Corporation, the new smartphone is “versatile and multifunctional” and comes in white or black, according to state-sponsored news agency DPRK Today. It also looks just like an iPhone.
The North Korean government has made a habit of ripping off American technology products. Back in 2013, Kim Jong Un’s totalitarian regime made a state-sponsored Android phone ripoff, followed by a Mac OS X ripoff in 2015. Now, it appears that North Korea wants a piece of streaming video.
