GooPhone’s done it again. What do you mean, what? Have you already forgotten about the I5, the incredibly accurate iPhone 5 copycat unveiledbefore Apple’s latest? We haven’t, which is why we couldn’t help but chuckle when spotting the newest GooPhone clone.
Chuckle and then bring it to your attention, naturally. Meet the GooPhone One, an exact replica (we think) of the still unreleased HTC One, previously known as the M7.
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).
Now let’s just hope GooPhone won’t be looking to sue HTC. Because if they will, all hell will break loose and the trial could well be the final nail in HTC’s coffin (sarcasm alert).
