There are lots of iPhone 4 knockoffs in China, and all of them look similar to Apple’s iPhone 4 but this SoPhone here is probably the king of fake iPhones.Chinese company Shenzhen SUFF Industry has introduced the SoPhone 4, a new GSM-based handset that aims to be nearly identical to the iPhone 4 in every possible way, blatantly copying the external design of Apple’s fourth-generation handset and iOS 4 UI.
Powered by MTK6235 chipset, the SoPhone comes with a 3.5-inch (480 X 320) capacitive touchscreen, 4GB of flash storage, front and rear camera with 2 megapixels, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and removable 1400mAh battery. The handset supports GSM and WCDMA, and it also includes the support of Java and WAP. It measures 115.2×58.6×9.3mm, which is exactly the same size as Apple’s iPhone 4. However, it lacks a retina display.
Watch a demo of the Sophone yourself to see how it looks.
The Sophone sells for 1380 Chinese yuan, or about $209. It’s not cheap like most knockoffs are, but the Sophone definitely deserves its spot as the best iPhone 4 knockoff of 2010.
