A robotics engineer has successfully replaced the USB-C port on a Samsung Galaxy A51 with a working Apple Lightning port.

Ken Pillonel, a student completing his master's degree in robotics at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, made the news last year for creating the World's First iPhone With a USB-C Port. You can see how that device was created here.

Today, Pillonel revealed that he has successfully accomplished the reverse challenge.

This is it. I've finally built the World's First Android phone with an Apple Lightning port. It supports charging and data transfers. It is a Samsung Galaxy A51. After creating the first USB-C iPhone in the world, I decided I needed to balance the chaos I have created by making the exact opposite invention. It was a complex modification that required some out-of-the-box thinking. And sprinkle some DIY on top of that. The full length explanation video is coming soon. Super excited to show you how I did it.

A full explanatory video is on the way but for now you can check out the modded Android device in the video below...
