North Korea's Arirang smartphone appears to be a Chinese knockoff
According to The Chosun Ilbo report, The BBC last Tuesday also quoted experts as suggesting that the Arirang smartphone is a Chinese product. Steven Millward, an editor of Singaporean IT website Tech In Asia said, "Possibly, the whole smartphone is made in China and only the final boxing is done in the rather sparse plant that Kim Jong-un toured." The BBC and the Hong Kong newspaper appear to be onto something here.
