Goophone Samsung Galaxy S6 clone is now available and costs just $169. Full device specs and details can be found here.
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.
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.
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 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.
