GooPhone’s boldness has not lost its edge! Today the infamous Chinese clone maker announced that it had already cloned the iPhone 6, the GooPhone i6, and will be releasing the phone in August.
Love them or hate them, GooPhone are here to stay! Quite an amazing achievement considering the brand have been making money by cloning the latest Apple products for the past new years. Since the launch of the iPhone 4, GooPhone have made it their mission to be at the forefront of knock-off smartphones and are always the first to release the latest Apple based clone.
The past few years has actually seen GooPhone release it’s knock-off before Apple have even had a chance to release the rear thing! Both the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5S were launched as Android powered GooPhone clones before the release of the genuine article.
With Apple nearing an iPhone 6 launch, GooPhone have again beaten them to it and have already announced they will begin sales of their GooPhone i6 on 1st August. The GooPhone i6 is an Android running smartphone based on alleged iPhone 6 leaks, and dummy phones which have been in the news for months already.
GooPhone have gone for a 4.7-inch IPS display on their clone, powered by a quad-core Mediatek MT6582 chipset, 1GB RAM and 13 mega-pixel rear camera. It is belived the phone could have dual SIM support, a micro SD card but it is unlikely to support 4G LTE bands. Pricing is not yet known either, but we guess that prices will be around $150+.
The GooPhone.net website also has knock off HTC and Samsung phones listed too. Will Apple finally get around to suing GooPhone this time around?
