iPhone 5 has Already been Cloned
For months now there are images circulating on the Internet of the future iPhone 5 components. A company in China, the country where the Apple terminal is built, didn’t wait for the phone to be launched, so they launched on the market a clone. As we can see, this device obviously runs on the Android operating system.
Those familiar with the IT industry in China know that Intellectual Property is a difficult concept to understand in this country. Given that Samsung is charged with more than a billion dollars in the United States for introducing in their phone some iPhone features, the Goophone company, in China, copied the iPhone 5’s appearance and the main screen.
It is assumed that the future iPhone 5 will come with a full 4 inch screen with a high resolution. The Googphone’s iPhone 5 size features rather an iPhone 4S screen, being equipped with a 3.5 inch screen. But the back cover is taken from the iPhone 5 design, and the apple logo has been replaced with the Android bee. The configuration is not known, nor think it will matter. It will be interesting only for those who are comfortable with the idea of being a clone of the popular smartphone on the market. As iPhone 4 clones arrived on virtually every market, I would not be surprising to see the Goophone iPhone 5, somewhere towards the end of the year.
