An iPhone 11 Pro with a misaligned Apple brand logo on the rear has just been sold. The device had the branding positioned incorrectly and was allegedly sold for a high price of 2,700 US Dollars.

According to an AppleInsider report, a tweet by Internal Archive on Twitter shared images of the rear of an iPhone 11 Pro model. In the images, the handset can be seen in multiple angles. This offers a clear look of the iPhone, highlighting its misprinted brand logo on the rear. Looking at the defect, it is clear the angle of the logo and its actual position is incorrect compared to the centrally aligned official logos that can be found on the rear of every iPhone.

We can see that the misprinted logo is off center and positioned noticeably to the right. Furthermore, the angle of the logo is also titled slightly anticlockwise. If this is truly the case, then the device would have faced a manufacturing error where the rear panel was likely not seated properly when the machine was imprinting the logo on the iPhone. Unfortunately, the tweet offers very little details and there is no concrete evidence to support the existence of the device.

Although, there is still a plausible chance for this to occur, however, it is numerically unlikely considering that this would be extremely rare. Like, ” in 100 million” chance of it ever happening. This would also mean that the faulty device also managed to somehow make it through the Cupertino based giant’s strict quality assurance process and actually shipped to a customer. Lastly, it is also unknown how and where this misprinted iPhone 11 Pro was sold for 2,700 US Dollars.
