Samsung Galaxy S4

The Samsung Galaxy S4 won’t be out until the end of April and manufacturers are already taking a crack at it. Thanks to a tip from  Caotic.it, we found out that Chinese manufacturer Sunle has cloned the Galaxy S4, calling the creation the S400. It’ll cost around $220 USD and will be available in China starting April 5.

Available in black or white, the specs are actually pretty solid:

  • 5-inch IPS HD display at 1280 x 720
  • 1.2GHz Mediatek MTK6859 quad-core processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 8GB internal storage with support up to 32GB
  • 8-megapixel rear-facing camera
  • 3-megapixel front-facing camera
  • 3G, Bluetooth, GPS
  • Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean
  • 2100 mAh battery

As with any smartphone or device from relatively unknown manufacturers, quality is always a concern. With Samsung more popular than ever, many companies will do whatever they can to get a slice of the Android marketplace, even if that means shameless ripoffs. Would you or have you ever bought a Chinese knockoff?

Thanks, Andrea!
