If you have not been living under a rock, you probably already know about iPhone X, Apple’s latest -And the most expensive- phone to date. As goes an old adage “fake it, if you can’t make it”, if you grew a little frustration watching iPhone X priced at Rs 89,000 and Rs 102,000, you got something to either laugh, cheer or maybe celebrate about.
If you are looking for an alternative, The Apple iPhone X has a rival that is priced at $100 (approximately Rs 6,500). Yes, you heard it right it’s the smartphone by a Chinese company GizChina, and it is called The GooPhone X.
Recently spotted in China it looks identical to the iPhone X. GooPhone is a Chinese brand notorious for selling knockoffs of premium devices. It has managed to get its iPhone hack well before the launch of iPhone X itself.
GooPhone X, or GooPhone I8, is entirely lifted Apple’s iPhone X’s aesthetics. And as one would expect it runs on Android OS. It features a 5.5-inch edge-to-edge display aa MediaTek MTK6580 chip, 1GB of RAM, 16GB internal memory, and a 720×1280 HD display.
It also displays fake 4G LTE status indicators while only providing 3G service, and shows 64GB of memory when it only has 16GB. And on rear what looks like a dual-camera setup, it actually an 8-megapixel sensor. The phone also has a 2-megapixel lens on the front for those high-resolution duckface selfies.
No guarantee of how long it can last. So if you really want a phone that looks like an iPhone X, and you don’t want to shell out $1000, you may just have found the perfect smartphone. If you are looking for real and acceptable alternatives, Essential Phone and the recently launched Galaxy Note 8 may be decent choices.
