Samsung Galaxy S4 or not: here is a virtually identical clone from China, coming with hand gestures

You might have not heard about Chinese company No.1, but it is now getting ready to release a very close Galaxy S4 clone that now only looks like the Samsung flagship, but also comes with its signature hand gesture features.
The No.1 S6 - as the device is called - will support Smart Pause, Hover Touch and other hand features that Samsung debuted in the S4, but it will only cost a fraction of the price.
The savings, of course, come from the cheaper internal parts. The No.1 S6 will feature a quad-core MT6589 chip allegedly only clocked at 1GHz, 1GB of RAM and 4 gigs of internal storage. It will have a 5-inch display like the S4, but the resolution will be lower at 720p. The Chinese clone will also feature a 13-megapixel camera.
The first images of the No.1 S6 have leaked out, take a look below.

- Display 5.0" 1080 x 1920 pixels
- Camera 13 MP / 2 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 600, Quad-core, 1900 MHz
- Storage 64 GB + microSDXC
- Battery 2600 mAh(17h 3G talk time)

it's easy to clone because of the build quality and cheap materials . . .

They'd have to use cheaper plastic or the phone will look premium in front of S4. My friend upgraded from Micromax (Indian manufacturer) a110 to Galaxy S3 a few days ago and guess what, he felt S3 had inferior build quality.
