So, this Goophone i5 looks a lot like an iPhone, sporting a 3.5-inch display with 940 x 640 pixels, a 5-megapixel camera sensor on the back and a 1.3-megapixel camera on the front. The best part? It runs a quad-core processor, however, GHz count is unknown. Also, other useful details like pricing and availability are still widely unknown. Well, we think we want one. Not to use as our everyday phone, but just to play with and show off our Chinese iPhone 5 ripoff before Apple unveils the new iPhone.
The next generation Xiaomi Phone is coming soon. Some exclusive photos and info have leaked out from Foxconn factories. The MI-2 will boast an improved screen with 720p resolution, and powered by a quad-core processor from Qualcomm.
Chinese low-end smartphone maker Xiaomi has announced that they will team up with China Unicom to offer the Xiaomi Phone through the telecom operator, just like what Apple did. And guess what, the company sold out all of its inventory of 100,000 Xiaomi phones in three hours when the company started a new round of online sales. This record is definitely comparable to what Apple achieved for the sales of iPhone 4 or 4S.
We all know how popular Xiaomi phone is in China and now it has a lot of its clones all over the Chinese e-commerce platform. Price ranging from 388 yuan – 1,600 yuan ($63 – $258). Of course, these clones are less powerful than the original, but there’re also some features that you couldn’t have on the original Xiaomi M1.
