China in the 80’s didn’t have it’s smartphone market, but it did have a thriving game console cloning industry, Suber being one of the household names in the field. Moving with the times the company have a smartphone on the way, and true to tradition it is a knock off.

Subor made a name for themselves in China during the late 80’s and early 90’s by taking Nintendo’s NES hardware and cloning it in various of ways. From knock off console to keyboard/console mashup, and even pirated games, Subor were one of the companies to go for.

The time of the NES is well behind us now, and Subor have been working on rebranding themselves as a phone maker, but they don’t intend to start being original just yet!

Through TENAA documents we can reveal that the next Android smartphone from Subor will be another clone, this one closely resembling the current flagship Xiaomi Mi4 device. Called the Subor X3, the phone will be powered by a quad-core MT6582 processor and 1GB RAM. Screen size is 5-inch with a resolution of 1280 x 720 and the phone runs Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean.

Now all of this doesn’t sound all that tempting does it? Well we think some people might just want to get their hands on the Subor X3 as it will cost just 399 Yuan in China which converts to roughly $65! Not bad for a HD smartphone!
