Apple recently launched three new iPhones– iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X (pronounced as iPhone X), which marks a decade since the former CEO Steve Jobs first introduced iPhone back in 2007. The three smartphones were launched alongside Apple Watch Series 3 and Apple TV 4K at a special event at the Steve Jobs theatre in its newly constructed campus in the heart of the Santa Clara Valley in the US.
To jog your memories, the 64GB variant of iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus are priced at $699 and $799 respectively and the 64GB variant of iPhone X is priced at $999. In terms of the pricing in India, the 64GB variant of iPhone X will costs Rs 89,000; on the other hand, the 256GB variant of iPhone X will cost a whopping Rs 1,02,000.
While the price of Apple’s shiny new iPhone might be steep enough to give you a heart attack, a Chinese company is selling an iPhone X at a price not more than Rs 6800! (shocked? We were too!)
MEET GOOPHONE X- a smartphone that looks like an iPhone and feels like Android! (yikes)
To give you a heads up, GooPhone is a notorious Chinese company that managed to manufacture a clone of iPhone X even before Apple unveiled its most anticipated smartphone before the world on September 12, 2017. Incidentally, the Chinese company also named its doppelganger after Apple’s anniversary edition device– GooPhone X (see the resemblance now?).
For most parts of it, GooPhone X looks like exactly like iPhone X, except for the features, that resemble an Android smartphone. For all the curious souls, GooPhone X is powered by MTK6580 quad-core processor and runs on Android 5.0. It sports 1GB RAM and 16GB internal memory. On the memory front, the iPhone X doppelganger has an 8MP rear camera and a 2MP front camera. It also has Wi-Fi 802.11, Bluetooth 3.0, GPS, 3G, and FM Radio for connectivity.
Would you still want to spend Rs 1 lakh on buying the new iPhone? Decide for yourself!
