Eye, the iPhone cover that turns it into an Android smartphone

It's called Eye, is designed by the company Esti INC. and is being launched on Kickstarter, in addition to protecting the smartphone has OLED screen and 256GB of memory

Imagine a cover for the iPhone that is basically an Android smartphone. No, we're not crazy, this is Eye a project of the company Esti Inc. Call it a cover would be reductive, because the project being launched on Kickstarter has an OLED screen, a slot for micro SD up to 256GB and runs with Nougat 7.1.

This is a bizarre idea that thought by Esti Inc. Eye is a cover for the iPhone, it is true, but in practice is a device in itself. In addition to protecting the Apple smartphone from bumps and falls in fact Eye has a 5-inch OLED screen. We also find a slot for external memory and two SIM slots. In addition it has a 2800mAh battery equipped with wireless charging and an NFC connection. In practice it is a phone more than a cover. In fact it does not lack the 3.5mm jack for headphones. While for the camera takes advantage of that of the iPhone. And as if all this were not enough, it is based on Android Nougat 7.1.

Utility and price

At this point the question will arise spontaneously. Why spend several euros on an Apple smartphone and then integrate it with typical Android services? From Esti Inc. they say that their cover is ideal to transform an iPhone into the perfect phone. Thanks to Eye in fact all the missing features criticized by some users of Cupertino are present. See the headphone jack or dual sim support on all. The idea remains bizarre and we have to understand whether or not users will adapt to a new smartphone experience with contrasting operating systems used together. To try it for yourself you have to spend about 90 euros to reserve the Eye base model. Model that until a few days ago was discounted to less than 60 euros, but the reservations have gone crazy. If instead we wanted a cover with 4G connectivity will have to spend about 120 euros. The retail price, ie outside the Kickstarter campaign will be about 180 euros. Shipments should start, worldwide, between August and September next.
