The First Ever Samsung Galaxy S6 Knockoff Is Already Here [Images]
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.
Some of the famous Chinese smartphone brands such as Huawei, Xiaomi, and Meizu have really stepped up their game in the past few years, but that has not given the knockoff industry any reason to slow down, and on the contrary, these knockoff makers have actually improved their product finishing standards, as can be claimed with this particular Galaxy S6 clone.
No.1 is the company behind cloning the Galaxy S6, and from the looks of things, they’ve actually done a fairly good job. The layout of the buttons on the phone is akin to the original, and No.1 has also included the metal frame around the body of the device. Now whether that is metal or not is something that can’t be confirmed. The front and the back panels also sport the same glass look as on the original, however being a knockoff, there’s a good chance that No.1 has simply gone with a glossy plastic back, but then again, clones do have this habit of surprising us from time to time.
At the heart of the phone is a MediaTek quad-core – or octa-core – processor, coupled with 1 or 2GB of RAM, and is expected to be available in 16GB and 32GB configurations. With support for 3G only, the phone doesn’t sound that bad, especially given the fact that it would literally cost a fraction of the cost of the original Galaxy S6, even though the rumored 1GB of RAM could significantly hurt the device’s everyday performance.
No word on the camera modules as yet, but we wouldn’t count on the results being that impressive really. The images don’t really say much about the display’s size and resolution either, but we can be sure that you won’t be seeing any AMOLED goodness here.
I for one would love to see a Galaxy S6 Edge knockoff instead, do you?
