The iPhone 6’s launch this past weekend proved people are still excited about Apple, so you can imagine the countless shameless manufacturers out there looking to cash in on its success. It didn’t take long, but the first iPhone 6 clone has arrived.

The device you see in the video above is the “Sophone i6,” which totally sounds legit. The device is built to look just like an iPhone 6, though obviously not with the same build quality that you’d get from the real deal out of Cupertino. It also won’t be loaded with nearly as good specs:

  • 4.7-inch 960 x 540 display
  • 1.3GHz quad-core MediaTek processor
  • 2GB of RAM
  • Android 4.3 Jelly Bean with a totally original skin on top
  • Fingerprint scanner
  • 13 megapixel rear Sony camera, 4.9 megapixel front camera
  • USB 2.0, aGPS, Bluetooth 4.0
  • 1810mAh battery
  • 139.5 x 67.0 x 7.5 mm, 112g

Jokes aside, though, this may not be a bad smartphone for its price — $140 as of the time of this writing. It could get the job done for someone who doesn’t have hundreds to spend on a legit iPhone or a high quality Android, though we’d just as soon suggest they go with something like the Moto G. You can watch a pretty full hands-on video from the retailer above.
