Knock off Samsung Galaxy S3 First Impressions and Specification

Chinese brand HDC have unveiled there plans for their “customs friendly” Samsung Galaxy S3 knock off and it looks every bit as amazing as the real phone!

Chinese Android smartphone brand HDC have been flying under the legal radar in China despite the fact the company primarily specializes in manufacturing high quality knock off devices.

Even though HDC manufacture HTC One S clones in China along with an exceptional Samsung Galaxy 2 clone, the company have managed to stay legal due to the fact they (claim to) never use other company’s trademarks or branding.

Use this way to circumnavigate the law, HDC are currently preparing to launch their next Android smartphone which looks very much like the all new Samsung Galaxy S 3 phone!

The knock off Samsung Galaxy S 3 will be available on sale in a few weeks, but pre launch models have been spotted out and about with initial reviews being extremely good!

Gizchina News of the week

One Chinese tech journalist even commented that he thought the new HDC S3 clone managed to fool him on first appearance!

I just think it is original, because it not only has sililar appearance, but also imitated new Galaxy S3 interface, background picture, and all are based on Android OS.

like all of HDC’s clones, their Samsung Galaxy S3 knock off boasts some amazing features with the the specification looking a little like this ;

    Hi Andi,

    Your previous article on this subject hinted that this clone might come with Jell Bean, but the specifications above mention Android 2.3 !!!! Every Tom, Dick & Harry is making Android phones with Ice Cream Sandwich (4.0.X) these days. So when this supposedly King-Of-Clones comes out with Android 2.3, the only thing that will be good about this phone is its “looks” (and MTK6577 – if they use that CPU !). Android 2.3 is what my grand pa used when he was a teenager ! Plus, a 0.3 MegaPixel front Camera ? Really ? I had much higher hopes with this clone. But if it comes out with the specs above, it just leaves me with 1 word. PATHETIC ! I might stick with my plans of buying a ZOPO ZP300 (ICS, 2.0 MP Front Camera and an equally fancy screen)!

      Yep not as awesome as we had been led to believe! We actually have a ZP300 in the office. It’s a great phone, however I’d would pay the extra for a Meizu MX unless you can get a super low price.

    Hi Andi,

    Basically, I’m looking for a High-end Dual-sim Android phone. Meizu MX is super kool but is not a dual-sim phone (and uses micro-sim? so sim needs to be cut like for iPhone?). My budget is practically unlimited. If manufacturers can build it , I can pay for it 😛 . None of the big manufacturers make high-end dual-sim phones (good CPU&RAM, GSM+GSM, Big screen with high res, new Android, Good high res dual cameras, and ofcourse, customs-proof 🙂 ).. Had high hopes with S3 clone but turned out to be a big disappointment. Since you know more about chinese smart phone market, what do you suggest? Is there any other dual-sim android phone out there that is better than ZP300 ? Like I said, I have an open budget as long as I get what I want.

    Thanks mate,
