Zophone i5 iPhone 5 clone launching soon for $195


The Zophone originally announced their ZoPhone i5 a few months ago, but it is only now that we are getting some firm indication of the phone will actually go on sale.

According to retailers across China the ZoPhone i5 is almost ready to launch and will cost around $195 once available.

As we have already shown in various leaked photos, the ZoPhone offers all the style and of the real Apple iPhone, but with the exception of a large “ZO” logo printed across the black (or silver) aluminium casing.

Due to ZoPhone unveiling the i5 just after the original iPhone 5’s launch, they have had to give their clone iPhone 5 components which were available at the time, thus explaining the use of a dual-core MT6577 CPU rather than the faster quad-core MT6589 processor, however this doesn’t explain why the ZoPhone i5 only get’s 512mb RAM!

The rest of the spec is pure MTK phone with 4GB RAM, an 8 mega-pixel rear camera, but with the additional of what appears to be a operational iPhone 5 Lightning port rather than micro USB.

    512MB RAM – no thank you!

    • Yup über let down!!!

  • Armando

    Thats because they still have to launch the 6589 version 😉 That version will probably end up with 1 or 2 GB ram memory haha 😀

    • And that would be awesome. I actually saw a video of this today running possibly the best iOS skin for Android I’ve seen, but with 512mb RAM it really lagged!

  • Where can I get this phone, where they do accept paypal transaction?

  • Henry

    Ok, so I ordered a ZoPhone i5 from AndroidForCheap about a month ago. I love it, it works great, but when will a quad-core version come out? I saw that the ZoPhone was listed on the MT6589 phone list resource; does anyone know a wesite that sells a quad-core ZoPhone?

  • Henry

    Ok, since no one has responded to my last post on this article, i’ll try again with a different question: Fastcardtech is selling a ZoPhone i5 ‘Pro’ model that claims to have an MTK 6589 quad core CPU at 1.2 Ghz. Can i trust Fastcardtech and buy it?

  • Alberto

    Henry has your zophone i5 the apple’s logo ? . Because in androidforcheap is without the apple’s logo. You can see that in the Phone’s photo.

    • Henry

      Yes Alberto. Androidforcheap does ship the ZoPhone with the Apple logo. The onl thing is is that the logo isn’t reflective and shiny. Its more of a matte grey print logo that could scratch off
