$99 Goophone i5C is a 4-inch Android running iPhone 5C clone

goophone-i5c_1

We’re used to seeing iPhone clones popping up in China, especially from one company in particular. Goophone has a history of releasing its own, cheap alternatives to the iPhone. Aesthetically, they look fairly similar to the iPhone, it’s when you boot them up that you notice the biggest difference: They’re running Android.

Goophone’s latest ‘i5C’ is a clone of a device yet to be released by Apple. The iPhone 5C’s Google-powered imitator will be available soon for $99 from AnyBuying.com and features the following:

Quick Overview:

- 4 inch screen, 960*540 pixel display
- 1GB RAM + 4GB ROM
- 1.2GHz dual-core 28nm MTK MT6572 processor
- 8MP back camera + 2MP front camera
- Android 4.2 OS

Some of the other specs include a 2,000 mAh battery and a MicroSD card slot. Being only one hundred bucks, it’s hardly likely that the device bears any resemblance to a quality phone. But if – like me – you’re curious to see what it’s like, you should be able to get hold of one in September. Shortly before (or after) that iPhone 5C is (maybe) announced.

Goophone has a selection of other clones available should the i5C not be to your liking. There are Galaxy S4, Note 2 rip-offs as well as the S4 mini wannabe. The most expensive I’ve seen is $299, which isn’t bad at all for a SIM-free phone, and that was the iPhone 5S rip-off, unimaginatively named the Goophone I5S.

    LAME!

    The problem is the fact that if a Chinese company can throw together a somewhat functional, somewhat attractive clone of a device before said device even ships, for a hundred bucks at that, there’s no reason manufacturers and carriers should be asking 600+ for the “real thing”.  But that’s what happens when you’re making things for consumer whores.  Present company included.

    Don’t you mean it’s an iPhone 5C clone running Android? The other way makes no sense.
