Goophone has come out in support of those who can’t afford the newly launched Samsung Galaxy S5 – by cloning the device in just 2 days and naming it, imaginatively, the Goophone S5.
The Goophone S5 will pack a 5-inch 1920×1080 display and will be powered by a MediaTek octa-core chipset clocked at 2GHz. It will come with 2GB of RAM, 32GB of onboard storage, WiFi, dual-SIM capabilities, a 2,800mAh battery, a 13MP rear-facing camera, a 5MP front-facing camera, and will be priced at $300.
The Samsung Galaxy S5 on the other hand, features a 5.1 inch Super AMOLED Full HD display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. The Galaxy S5 is powered by a 2.5 Ghz Snapdragon 800 processor and runs on Android 4.4 KitKat. This latest flagship from Samsung is packed with a 2 GB of RAM and 16/32 GB internal storage options along with expandability of 64 GB via MicroSD card.
The knockoff S5 obviously contains the “Goophone” branding on the rear shell, but that appears to be the only design element that differentiates the two pieces of kit.
The Goophone S5 will compliment the company’s line of familiar looking offerings, like the Goophone i5S,Goophone i5C, Goophone N3 and the Goophone Smart Watch.
We’re not sure if Samsung will be taking any legal action against Goophone and their blatant and very obvious Galaxy S5 ripoff. The official site for the product is currently showing as “out of stock“.
