Top 8 iPhone Clones from China- The ‘Xiaomi Effect’

Commentary: Xiaomi has been brazenly cloning Apple for years. Their success and $46 valuation has taken the embarrassment out of being called an IP thief.

In light of this, Chinese companies are now pumping out knockoff IPhones like crazy. Even big names like Huawei, ZTE and Lenovo have gotten into the act and are treading on Xiaomi’s  ‘IP theft’ crown


1-Another Chinese Company Just Unveiled A Dirt-Cheap iPhone Clone, And This Time It’s Even Called The ‘6 Plus’

Chinese smartphone maker Huawei just took the wraps off its latest Android phone, and it looks awfully familiar (via Engadget). 

The new Honor 6 Plus, a follow-up to the company’s Honor 6 phone, comes with a 5.5-inch 1080p screen — just like Apple’s similarly-named iPhone 6 Plus.

There’s noticeable resemblance in terms of design, too. Take a look at the Huawei Honor 6 Plus below. It features similarly-sized bezels above and below the screen just like the iPhone, and the main difference appears to be the lack of a home button. 

  

2-The GooPhone i6 is official – second iPhone 6 clone rears its head in China

The clone artists at China’s GooPhone have outdone Apple and good taste yet again. The company is proud to announce the GooPhone i6, a modest, but still flattering imitation of what pretty much everybody expects the new iPhone 6 to look like.

3-Apple Inc. isn’t expected to unveil the iPhone 6 before September, but one Chinese manufacturer already has a working clone that just might be good enough to fool your friends.

Called the Wico i6, the iPhone 6 clone caught on video is functional, down to software that has been made to mimic the look of iOS. On first glance, the clone features Applesque details down to the “Designed by Apple in California” and “Made In China” claims on its rear cover.

6-Goophone i5

According to highly suspect rumors website NowhereElse.fr, an industrious Chinese company has already copied the design for the iPhone 5—even before we officially know what the iPhone 5 looks like. Meet the Goophone i5, the bastard child of cobbled together rumors and unyielding ambition.

If you ignore the buzzing Android bug (?) on the back of the Goophone i5 it could easily be what many people think Apple’s newest iPhone will look like. At the very least it has the rumored two-tone back design. But where most believe the new iPhone will have a taller design than its predecessor, the dimensions of the Goophone i5 are the same as those on the old 4×3, 3.5-inch iPhone 4S. Oh well. It seems even counterfeiters aren’t willing to fully place their bets based on supposedly leaked specs. [NowhereElse.fr via MacRumors]

7-Notorious Chinese Company Releases The iPhone 5S Before Apple Does

Apple hasn’t announced the iPhone 5S yet, but Chinese clone specialist GooPhone has already created a cheap knockoff of it. And it has done a pretty incredible job. As you’ll see in the video below, the “i5S” looks identical to the real thing, and you probably wouldn’t even know it was a clone. That is, until you started using it.
