Believe it or not, the yet unlaunched and unannounced HTC M7/One has already been cloned in China. We’re only 3 days away from the big HTC event on February 19th, the one that will mark the debut of the HTC One/M7 and possible a bunch of other devices. Till then let’s feast our eyes with the GooPhone One, the very first clone of the HTC One.
GooPhone is famous to making accurate clones of the iPhones and Galaxy devices, plus the iPad Mini. The renderings shown here detail the GooPhone One, that seems to keep all sizes intact, including a 4.7 inch display, but I doubt it’s got a Full HD resolution. The UI is far from HTC Sense 5.0, rather showing the GooPhone Lewa OS than your usual HTC-infused Android with Sense. The fact that we have two signal indicators on the screen shows we’re dealing with a dual SIM dual standby phone, so consider this a bonus from the HTC One.
GooPhone One will use Mediatek’s quad core CPU, the MT6589, plus 1 GB of RAM at least and perhaps even a 13 MP camera at the back, although that’s yet to be confirmed. If this sells for anything less than $250 or $200, it’s a solid purchase, at least for the sake of design.
