Who here thought ZTE’s bases were all covered for 2013 and there was simply no way the company would dare to unveil yet another Android smartphone? I’ll admit, I’m guilty as charged. After all, it’s…
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?
