The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 was first released about two months ago and it is very popular in Asia and Chinese market. But apparently some ‘Shanzhai’ manufacturers in China has decided to clone the Korean device. Previously, we already have a knockoff Galaxy SIII, for now Chinese consumer can buy a brand new Galaxy Note 2 knockoff in China for just about $140. Officially dubbed the Star S7180, it bears a striking resemblance to the original, that is to say that it closely matches the looks of the current flagship Samsung phablet …
According to its retail box, goes by the name ‘Android Note II’, the Star S7180’s casing is decked out in all white, too. Compared to the real Galaxy Note 2, it has only modest specs. S7180 comes with a 5.3-inch touchscreen display with 854 x 480 resolution and has Jelly Bean (4.1.1) pre-installed by default. It uses a dual-core processor (MTK6577) with 1GB of RAM and has 4GB of internal storage. It also features an 8-megapixel camera at the back, support GSM and WCDMA cellular network (dual SIM card). Battery capacity measured at 2800mAH and weight at 168 grams (5.92 ounce). Frankly speaking, all clone handset connoisseurs out there are now more interested to clone Samsung handset rather than Apple’s iPhone. The Star S7180 is five times cheaper than the original, but its kind of sucks on the low resolution screen. The knockoff Galaxy SIII has an option of HD 720p screen.
