Android Devices with IOS operating system on network

Hello
I noticed few devices on my network that are leaving me perplexed. One if the devices was totally unknown to me and showed up only very briefly at 3:08AM.
The second one seems to have been around quite a bit. Now The bizarre think is that although the device bears the custom name of one of my android (Note10), on Find description the device has IOS operating system (see attached). How is that possible? The info of the device show that it's an Android 11/ Android 11 R / Vendor Google/ Java Runtime Android Runtime 0.9 / Java VM ART 2.1.0

How is it possible that the it's running with an Apple IOS system?

    @SaxeCoburgGotha, what brand routers are you using to give DHCP based addressing?  I'm almost thinking that what your seeing is the branding of the system software giving out DHCP addresses rather then the device itself being reported on.

    Can you delete it from Fing since its off line and wait till its rediscovered?  Curious if on second scan if it's identified the same way.  

    Also, I've seen this before, if an IP address is re-used on two different devices Fing can occasionally become confused.  It's rare but it happens.  You can correct this by manually identifying the device (in your picture, choose under device not recognized) and properly identify what it is.

    I experience seeing these same mixed descriptions of devices that left me confused.

    Long story short … it turned out to be true 100%. Fing got it right then and later in subsequent and similar discoveries which generated real-time live notifications to my devices.

    Coming soon - “A Wolf in Sheep Clothing. Hacked! A lived experience.” A true story of two brothers in the same household. A case of the have nots cyber-attacking the haves.

    At this time, I’m still in the, “living” the experience stage. The ending will be written concluding with, “Good Morning, Your Honor! Exhibits A B C D aaaannndd E, whenever you are ready.” This conclusion will allow me to transit to, “A lived experience.”

    Hey folks, Marc left some good troubleshooting tips/explanation above. As he said "Can you delete it from Fing since its off line and wait till its rediscovered?  Curious if on second scan if it's identified the same way.  

    Also, I've seen this before, if an IP address is re-used on two different devices Fing can occasionally become confused.  It's rare but it happens.  You can correct this by manually identifying the device (in your picture, choose under device not recognized) and properly identify what it is. "
    May I ask you to try this if this is occurring for you? It doesn't mean there is hacking involved.
