The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 hasn’t even been launched yet, but that hasn’t prevented China based, Century Electronics Group, from manufacturing a quad-core MT6589 equipped clone!
Clones of Samsung Galaxy Note phablets are ten a penny here in China. Some aren’t worth the plastic they are shoddily slapped together from, while others like this Note 3 clone look like quite the investment!
Marketed simply as the Note 3 and shipped in rather plain box, this Galaxy Note 3 clone looks very similar in design to the GooPhone N2, but rather than using an older dual-core MT6577 CPU this Chinese phablet uses the more powerful and efficient Mediatek MT6589 quad-core chip.
The Note 3’s screen is a 5.7-inch 720p IPS unit, there is a 5 mega-pixel front camera and 8 mega-pixel rear, while 1GB RAM helps out the 1.2Ghz 4-core chip and 8GB ROM plus ann SD card reader handle storage.
According to the specs this knock-off will run on GSM 850/900/1800/1900MHz 3G: WCDMA 2100MHz, networks GSM / GPRS / EDGE / UMTS / HSDPA / HSUPA. 802.11n Wi-Fi, GPS, A-GPS and Bluetooth 3.0 are all onboard too.
Pricing hasn’t been mentioned just yet, but prices shouldn’t be much more than 999 Yuan ($160).
