It was only inevitable that a knockoff of the Samsung Galaxy S6 would make an appearance. The very first clone – of what we guess is the start of a few more to come – is actually a pretty neat copy of the original, so read on for images and more information on this Galaxy S6 knockoff.

Bound for an April release this year, the Apple Watch is one of the most anticipated products to be coming out of the Apple camp since the original iPhone. As has become a custom in recent years, courtesy of the booming Chinese industry, Apple Watch replicas have come pouring in like there’s no tomorrow. In a recent video released of a replica, we see how close to the actual thing it really is, that is until you fire it up.

A new iPhone 6 knockoff has surfaced in China, and even though it’s not identical to the real thing, it’s not a bad clone either.

The only surprise about the Chinese designed and manufactured Sophone i6 is that it’s taken exactly a week after Apple’s media event to get into the public eye. The Chinese smartphone industry has a reputation for being quick off the mark when it comes to producing copies of leading industry devices, so it’s no surprise that this unapologetic iPhone 6 clone is now available. We can only imagine that the manufacturers behind the Sophone are the first in what will be a long line of Chinese companies to produce a similar offering in the coming weeks.

While us tech fans are closely following the updates of forthcoming Apple products on the basis that we’re interested in what new technologies the company may be including, others are digging around for clues on the design so they can continue coming through with cheaper, knockoff options. Xiaomi, a Chinese outfit famed for continually churning out somewhat plausible iPhone replicas, has just launched its first tablet, and unsurprisingly, it’s a dead ringer for Apple’s iPad mini.

With likes of Sony and Samsung having revealed their latest and greatest devices at MWC last week, it will soon be the turn of Taiwanese outfit HTC to showcase its eagerly-awaited successor to the critically-acclaimed 2013 release of the One. Thanks to numerous leaks, we already know most of the key details of the device, known technically as the ‘HTC M8’, including its stronger processor, larger display and two rear-facing cameras, but with the unveiling set for March 25th, we’re going to be waiting a good few weeks beyond that for its release. If patience isn’t your forte, perhaps you might be interested in yet another nifty bit of fakery from resident knockoffer Goophone, which has come through a respectable clone of the as-yet unannounced handset. Check it out after the break!

Apple’s iPhone is often cloned and bootlegged in nations such as China, but rarely does Japan get in on the act. One company, recognizing just how popular the latest and greatest iPhone 5c has been so far in Japan, has taken advantage of the situation by delivering a smartphone that, despite appearing fairly similar to its Cupertino-designed adversary, does the colorful handset a gross disservice with a bunch of crummy specs.

The iPad mini, which was recently given a Retina display and improved processor by Apple, is one of the most sought-after tablets on the market right now. As is the case with most new Apple products, the knock-off makers have been hot on its trail to deliver something similar for a lower price, and although the Chuwi V88’s 1024 x 768 display puts it on par with the old iPad mini, the $177 price tag – coupled with the fact that it boasts some fairly useful specs – means it might be worth checking out for those seeking something like the iPad mini without the iPad mini price.

The budget iPhone 5C is almost upon us, and as the experts, commentators and consumers continue to estimate the eventual retail price of the so-called low-cost device, it certainly won’t be anywhere near as cheap as its Chinese clone. Yes, the knockoff-ers are back in force in time for the release of Apple’s next range of handsets, and while the knockoff iPhone 5C won’t run on iOS 7, it will only set you back a mere hundred bucks!

HTC’s One smartphone is the product of meticulous engineering, and seeing as though the Taiwanese company has quite a lot riding on its success, it would appear that extra provisions have been made to ensure this particular device has the “wow” factor. Like every high-end device on the market, though, it hasn’t taken too long for the knockoff makers to come up with a cheaper alternative, and although such clone devices were once very low-end, the ‘HDC One’ surfacing from China is perhaps anything but low-end.

With scarcely 24 hours having passed since Apple announced a glut of product updates at its specially-arranged keynote event in San Jose, it was almost inevitable the knockoff makers wouldn’t be too far behind. While the first plausible iPad mini knockoff has already reared its head, it’s not so common for us to see bootleg Macs unveiled so soon after the official announcement.
