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.

I'd just have to print "Samsung" logo decals and paste on the front and back, and on appearance they are identical :D

GooPhone i5 uses plastic for some parts though. Visually you wont notice (if the phone screen is turned off without showing the UI) but if you touch it you will notice.

Making a aluminium case isnt exactly rocketscience. It wouldnt make it much difficult at least a few bugs more expensive.

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.

Clone one Samsung phone and you have cloned them all. Just change the display screen size and call them S4, S3, S3 mini, galaxy fame or whatever.
