The main GooPhone difference is that it won’t use iOS (I think it is clear why), but it will get a world-wide known open-source mobile operating system – Android from Google – and will allow the Android apps use respectively.
Besides, the Chinese variant of Apple smartphone will have an image of a green robot in the form of a bee engraved on the back cover.
Despite the rumors that the new iPhone 5 display can grow up to 4 inches, GooPhone I5 will be produced with a 4.0-inch display as rumoured on the upcoming iPhone 5 (but with the 1280 x 720 pixels resolution).
Other specs of the new Chinese gadget are also good. It will be powered by a 1.4GHz Tegra 3 quad-core processor, 1GB of RAM, and Android 4.0. The smartphone will have two cameras: the back one will be of 8 megapixels and the front one – 1.3 megapixels. Besides, the clone of iPhone 5 will get a 3.5mm headphone jack in the base, mini dock connector, as well as larger than normal speaker grills.
Just to compare, the expected features of the incoming iPhone 5 are 4 inches display, a quad-core A6, internal memory up to 64 GB, 8-megapixel camera, the chip NFC, 1GB of RAM and support 4G-networks.
However, despite the fact that Chinese manufacturers have a habit of copying the designs of the well-sold phones in the world, they are not usually taken to courts. But may be after the successful case with Samsung, Apple will change its minds and will try to protect its design?
The GooPhone I5 costs around $300.
