While Apple’s iPhone 4 is going on sale at different countries in the world, a Chinese knockoff company is selling iPhone 4 knockoff through a fake iPhone 4 product page site. What’s so funny is that the company shows a certificate of authorization on the fake website to let customers know that the iProducts are legally registered in China… So, maybe these people are telling you that they are Apple authorized reseller and you can get a “real” iPhone 4 from them, for just $1180 yuan (about $174).
This Chinese knockoff company appeared out of nowhere, and we found them through their fake iPhone 4 website. The company is selling iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS knockoff on the site, and they even explained the features and design of the phones, all in Chinese. They have six highlights for their products — Officially licensed, US original, quality assurance, cash on delivery, 7 day refund and lifetime warranty.
This company copies Apple’s iPhone 4 product page, and set up a fake website to sell their iPhone 4 knockoff. The site is pretty genuine at first sight, and the Chinese consumers would not know it’s actually a fake. Interestingly, the site has a guide which teaches you how to differentiate a real iPhone 4 and a knockoff version, while they are actually selling a fake iPhone 4. For the purchasing, the site provides a online booking form which customers needs to input their names, phone number, shipping address, and choose the type of iPhone 4 they wish to purchase. After submitting the order form, the company will keep contact with you, and ship the “real” iPhone 4 to your door step in 3-5 working days. Well, customers can also call their hotline number for more details, 400-6789-785. WTF…
We took a deep look on the iPhone 4 knockoff this company is selling. They have two models, one with “Dual SIM, dual standby mode” and another is a ” China Telecom customized version” which also comes with dual SIM, dual standby mode. The telecom customized model is priced at $1680 yuan (about $248), which is $500 yuan higher than the basic model.
The iPhone 4 knockoff they are selling looks like the one we have reviewed, but with different packaging.
We would love to try purchasing one from them, but it seems there’s no need since someone has bought one and posted some photos and a video of it.
Sitting on the left is the real iPhone 4, and the fake is on the right.
We are amazed by what the knockoff makers are doing recently, they produce the iPhone 4 knockoff and create a website for it, pretending to be as real as Apple. They almost copied everything, and maybe Steve Jobs needs to do something about it, especially the certificate of authorization on the fake website.
