For every popular mobile device you can expect to find a clone developed by a Chinese manufacturer. There are dozens of iPhone clones out there, and just recently a company called Goophone released its Samsung Galaxy S5 clone. Almost every design feature has been replicated to make it look as close to the real deal as possible. Goophone has now set its sights upon the All New HTC One, the company’s HTC One’s successor that is yet to be officially unveiled. That won’t stop Goophone though as it has already unveiled its clone, called the Goophone M8.
Goophone hasn’t shied away from using the purported codename of the real All New HTC One, M8. HTC is due to announce its 2014 flagship on March 25th whereas the clone has already been listed and can be ordered by anyone willing to purchase it. In a sense its Goophone’s own successor, as it cloned the HTC One last year as well.
The clone has a 5 inch full HD touchscreen display, a 1.7GHz quadcore processor from MediaTek with 1GB of RAM, 16GB of onboard storage, a 12.6 megapixel rear camera, 5 megapixel front camera, Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and a 2,800mAh battery. All of this is up for $229, which may very well be a bargain as opposed to the all metal touting official flagship from HTC. There’s a reason why these clones exist, those who’re unable to buy the real thing would find solace in owning a phone that at least looks, if not performs, like the one they really want.
