Now this is hilarious! Just as the entire tech world was busy overanalyzing the recent verdict in the Apple vs Samsung patent war, here comes the perfect opportunity to understand what design theft really looks…
GooPhone’s done it again. What do you mean, what? Have you already forgotten about the I5, the incredibly accurate iPhone 5 copycat unveiled before Apple’s latest? We haven’t, which is why we couldn’t help but chuckle when spotting the newest GooPhone clone.
Aren’t these GooPhone guys a riot? Seriously, we had no idea how the HTC One was going to look until last week and they already have a duplicate in production? Unbelievable!
Of course, with the HTC One unveiling events scheduled for tomorrow, we highly doubt GooPhone’s clone will go up for sale before its “twin”. And still we’re amazed at how quickly they got things done. Just look at those two pics and ignore the fugly UI and the GooPhone imprint for a moment.
Can you really tell this isn’t the real thing? We think not. Unfortunately, you will be able to tell the two apart once the knock-off will be out. And that’s because rumor has it the GooPhone One will come packing a quad-core Mediatek MT6589 and 1 GB of RAM.
The 4.7-inch display will probably not boast a Full HD resolution either, but the rear-facing camera is said to be equipped with a 13 MP sensor. As far as software goes, Android Jelly Bean should butter up the package, but instead of the sleek-looking Sense 5 UI, you’ll get the Lewa OS on top (whatever the heck that is).
