Known Chinese copycat manufacturer claims to be working on a Galaxy S5 clone based off actual renders
No.1, a Chinese manufacturer known for its rather accurate copies of popular flagships like the Galaxy S4, Galaxy Note 3, and the iPhone 5c, are claiming to be already working on a possible Galaxy S5 clone.
The information was relayed to China-centric smartphone blog GizChina, and according to the folks behind it, No.1 reached out to them off its own accord. The tip also included a few renders, which No.1 is claiming to be the real deal, and is basing a new model on them. Whether this is just a cheap marketing trick to get some traction, however, remains unknown. That said, seeing as the Galaxy S5 is currently expected to come at the end of March at the latest, it wouldn't be a giant stretch to imagine that some sneaky folks have managed to get their hands on something legit, unlikely as it is. If these are indeed truth (weirder things have happened), then we can expect Sammy to come out with a near bezel-less device that still adheres to the current Galaxy line design philosophy. The real change is at the back, where the camera and LED units have been nudged in the left top corner of the shell. It would also appear that Sammy is again prepping an S View cover, tailored around the alleged Galaxy S5 seen below.
As always, take a look, but don't jump onto conclusions just yet.
