China is a country where everything is possible ! Today GooPhone has officially announced the GooPhone i6, and as you can see, it shares quite the resemblance to a still unannounced device. The device GooPhone i6 will be released in August, according to them.
Breaking down the features indicates why this will never be more than just a mid-range knockoff, though. It features a 4.7-inch qHD display, with a resolution of 960×540. There’s an MTK6582 quad-core processor under the hood, and 1GB of RAM. There’s a 13-megapixel camera on the back, and a 5MP camera on the front. It’s loaded with 8GB of built-in storage.
The past few years has actually seen GooPhone release it’s knock-off before Apple have even had a chance to release the rear thing! Both the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5S were launched as Android powered GooPhone clones before the release of the genuine article.
The announcement was first discovered by GizChina, precedes a launch date of August 1. The price? Somewhere around $150. It’s running some version of Android, but the report doesn’t confirm which version. It also looks like the only color option will be gold.
GooPhone have gone for a 4.7-inch IPS display on their clone, powered by a quad-core Mediatek MT6582 chipset, 1GB RAM and 13 mega-pixel rear camera. It is belived the phone could have dual SIM support, a micro SD card but it is unlikely to support 4G LTE bands. Pricing is not yet known either, but we guess that prices will be around $150+.
