Earlier this week we reported that GooPhone had already unveiled a clone of the HTC One, and now they are at the cloning game once again, this time with the GooPhone N2 Lite.
As you have probably already guessed, the N2 Lite is GooPhone’s clone of the Galaxy Note 2. As you can see in the picture above, they did a very good job in mimicking Samsung’s design, although the bezel is a bit larger than the Note 2. Of course on the inside, the N2 Lite falls short.
While the GooPhone N2 was originally planning on going quad-core, the end result is a phone that runs on a dual-core 1GHz MT6577 processor with 1GB of RAM, hence the “Lite” tacked onto the name.
Other specs for the clone device include a 1.3MP shooter in the front, an 8MP camera on the back, 4GB storage, microSD, 3G support and a 3,100 mAh battery. The display is a 720p 5.5-incher. Considering the Lite moniker thrown onto the end, it is possible that a quad-core GooPhone N2 could eventually be in the works as well.
While obviously not anywhere near as powerful as the actual Note 2, the price is actually quite impressive at 999 Yuan, or about $160. Don’t expect this phone to ever leave China officially, though. Doing so would place the GooPhone N2 Lite in danger of a lawsuit by Samsung.
What do you think of the GooPhone N2 Lite, are you impressed by its low price tag and near-identical look to the actual Note 2?

These GooPhone guys are something…
The Chinese are good at copying military equipment, cars and smartphones..
after all, they learnt it from copycat Samsung. and applying same trick on them :D lol
??? Samsung is in different country
Wow, a 1.3Mhz front shooter. That is incredibly fast for a camera ;)
99 yuan? That’s like $20 here. Are you sure you typed in the right price?
a made in china knock off right? scums
what makes them scum? it is because they are Chinese and you don’t like the Chinese? Is it because they are making knocks off using child labor? The way I see it…is that if they can make clones and charge us 1/4 the cost, then Samsung is ripping us off big time. They’re profit margin is ridiculous and I wont take it anymore. I just ordered a $200 goo-phone N2 and if I bought it from my wireless carrier here in North America without a contract…it would cost me close to $800 and it would be locked to that specific carrier. Why would I pay that much for a device that I would not have the freedom to use with any carrier? So I really don’t know why your panties are in a twist about this. Normally Americans would complain about outsourcing but Samsung isn’t even made in America…So what is your deal?
Should take more than a few sales away from Samsung…..which is fine with China.
lol the chinese.., they copy everything from eggs to electronics…

LOL! I wanna see that happen!
The author of this article seems to be new at this sort of thing. Chinese have been selling all types of phone clones for years now. I have been dealing with two such companies for 5 years…no lawsuits…lol I even have an Apple iPhone 4 with the apple logo on it and the simulated iPhone desktop but actually runs on Android platform. The writer needs to do more research. lmao
