I just bought this handset a few days ago from Expansys.
I noticed that there are some questions raised and would like to share my experience.
1. The handset is brand new. I used the imei number to check, it showed that it was not "pre-activated".
2. The one that I got comes with IOS 11.4.1
3. It was manufactured in Aug 2018 by India
4. It is working fine.
5. They sent me a free screen protector.
Hope this helps!
