Goophone knocks off another with its clone of the unannounced All New HTC One

goophone announces knockoff new htc one m8

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.

OnePlus 8 rumored to launch in early April, with new Lite version possible
OnePlus 7T Pro

The OnePlus 8 may be here sooner than you think, according to a new rumor. The next OnePlus phone will launch during the second week of April, putting the date somewhere between April 6 to April 10, as it’s unlikely the phone would be unveiled over the weekend, according to an anonymous source speaking to TechRadar India.

Although the exact source is not known, the date wouldn’t be that unlikely, but would definitely be earlier than OnePlus’ previous release schedules. The OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro were shown off for the first time on May 14, 2019, before going on sale at the beginning of June. The OnePlus 6 came along on May 22, 2018, making the possibility of an April 2020 launch much earlier than most would have predicted based on previous experience.

Motorola wants you to look very closely at its new phone, the One Macro

Here’s a new phone to look at a little closer: The Motorola One Macro. The latest in an ever-increasing line-up of Motorola One phones, it joins the Motorola One Vision, One Zoom, and One Action, and its main feature is given away in the name. That’s right, it has a camera designed to take close-up shots; but unlike the name also suggests (and some previous One phones) it does not run Android One.

On the back is a triple-lens camera, and the macro lens is equipped with 2 megapixels and the ability to focus on objects just 2cm away from it. Motorola says it can even add a bokeh effect to these close-up shots, which sounds really interesting. We’ve seen this kind of feature before, but it’s now growing in popularity as manufacturers look for ways to make phone cameras different. The new OnePlus 7T has a particularly effective macro mode, and Huawei incorporated one into the Mate 20 Pro; but the One Macro brings the feature to the masses.
