Last time we heard from Goophone, the company it announced a knockoff version of the Samsung Galaxy S5 shortly after the its official unveiling. It seems like the company won’t stop there, though, if today’s announcement of a knockoff All New HTC One is any indication.
Much like with the Goophone S5 and the original, the Goophone M8 resembles the unannounced All New HTC One, codenamed the M8. There are several differences between the two devices, though, one of them being the presence of capacitive keys instead of the on-screen buttons found on the real thing.
In addition, we’re looking at a 1.7GHz MediaTek octa-core processor coupled with 1GB of RAM and Android Jelly Bean 4.2. The knockoff handset has a 13-megapixel rear-facing shooter, while the camera up front is of a 5-megapixel variety. Finally, the phone is equipped with a 5-inch 1080p screen. Unfortunately, the Goophone M8 is only capable of 3G speeds.
Compared to rumored specifications of the real All New HTC One, the Goophone M8 won’t even come close to the real thing. The same applies to the price, apparently: the Goophone M8 will run you $230. If you’re one to enjoy these, um, kind of products, the handset is available for purchase.
