In July last year, we did take a closer look at how Chinese manufacturers these days have come up with better and better clones of existing handsets, and among them include the GooPhone X1. It seems that there is a newer generation of the GooPhone X1, as what you see above is clearly different from last year’s iteration, as that particular model is said to lean more towards the HTC One S design than anything else. Still, the newly re-introduced GooPhone X1 has one strong point going for it – that is, it will be priced from approximately $81 or €62 onwards.
At that price point, it will arrive with a quad-core processor, which so happens to be one of the most popular types used in China in the form of the MediaTek MT6589, where it will be based on the Cortex-A7 architecture from ARM. Other hardware specifications include a rather “meh” 4.7” touchscreen at 480×854 resolution, a 2-megapixel shooter at the back, a 1.3-megapixel camera in front, 512MB RAM, dual SIM capability, Android 4.2 Jelly Bean on board and a 1,800 mAh battery. Don’t expect to see this puppy being sold Stateside though.
