Creator of the first iPhone with USB-C adds a Lightning port to an Android phone

Last year, Ken Pillonel did what Apple refused to do: make an iPhone with a USB-C port. Ken has also modified some AirPods with a USB-C port. For his next Frankensteinian creation, Ken converted an Android phone to use a Lightning port.

The device started life as Samsung Galaxy A51 and it had a standard USB-C 2.0 port. After the transmogrification was complete, the phone had a fully functional Lightning port with data and charging support. Below is a short demo:

The creator says a more detailed video will be available soon. The video will dive deeper into what it took to pull off this transformation.

It might not be the most useful creation, but Ken Pillonel says he wanted to bring balance to the world after making the USB-C iPhone. And it’s an impressive feat of engineering.
