Breaking News: Hands on iPhone 5 video from Meox

Good morning all! It’s a dull rainy day here so what better to brighten up our day than to start with an exclusive hands on iPhone 5 video from Meox showing the 4 inch device in all its iOS glory!

Manufactured by Chinese phone company Meox, this large screen iPhone 5 wannabe actually looks a lot better in the video below than it did in these photos we posted of it earlier in the week.

Strictly speaking this knock off iPhone 5 isn’t really a clone as it we still don’t know what the real next generation iPhone will look like and is more like an artists impression of what they believe the new iPhone will be like, but as an actual dual core, 4 inch screen phone we can buy!

As you will see in the video, the design is very much that of the new iPad or iPod touch 4 but in a 4 inch screen size and boasts a very thin 8.6mm body.

Unlike most of the iPhone 5 ideas and clones we’ve come across the Meox iPhone 5 is actually a very impressive phone with a 4-inch QHD screen, 1.2GHz dual-core Cortex-A9 processor, 1GB RAM and 16GB storage, and 8MP rear camera.

Gizchina News of the week

Android ICS 4.0 is the OS of choice but like Gooapple Meox have done a fine job of making Google’s OS look and function just like Apples iOS!

    Such videos (and manufacturers in general) often tell the batch price (usually 1000pcs) per unit. This gets higher with the seller’s percentage and the taxes, so 300$ is pretty much the 150$ batch price.

    I’m curious on this. I’ve noticed that people in China get these phones for a cheaper price. What about us buyers in the USA? Is there anyway for us to get prices similar to the China citizens, or is Android-Sale, and other similar sites the closest we’ll get to good deals? Thanks
