HTC One not yet announced, but it's already been cloned in China

The GooPhone One is an almost exact copy of the HTC One, at least of those alleged leaks with a dual front speakers.
Of course, the GooPhone creation will be much cheaper and possibly running on MediaTek’s new quad-core MT6589 processor. The GooPhone One is likely to run on the Lewa OS skin on top of Android and the device will support dual-SIM connectivity.
The screen is expected at the same 4.7 inches but we doubt it’d be 1080p. The GooPhone One is quite real and shows just how quick Chinese phone makers have gotten. And while previously we’d easily write off white box manufacturers phones as junk in most cases, given a quite capable cheap processor like the MT6589 those devices do start to look justified, don’t you think?
- Display 4.7" 1080 x 1920 pixels
- Camera 4 MP / 2.1 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 600, Quad-core, 1700 MHz
- Storage 64 GB
- Battery 2300 mAh(18h 3G talk time)

I think I'll just wait for the Goo SIV or the Goo X.

Yeah, that does look more like the Z10, especially with those icons.

They probably have some great stuff. Once Samsung or anyone else sells their 720p screen stock to make room for 1080p or full HD ones, goophone will buy it for cheap. So in a few years we will see some knock offs with 720p screens.
