The Chinese are getting smarter and smarter day by day, and faster too, at cloning stuff. Cheap Chinese knockoffs of popular Smartphones like the Galaxy S4, Note II and HTC Butterfly do exist, but usually come after the real phone launches. This one is different. Chinese phone cloning companies were just too impatient to allow HTC to officially launch their first phablet, the HTC One Max. While the One Max might launch in September, its Chinese clone is already on sale, and looks much like how we expect the final phablet to resemble.
This HTC One Max clone packs a 6.3" HD (1280 x 720) display, 1 GB of RAM, an 8 MP rear camera and 2 MP front camera, is powered by a 1.2 GHz MediaTek quad-core processor and packs a 3,050 mAh battery. We're actually disappointed in the specifications, we were expecting better. Oh well, you can pick up the fake HTC One Max, which also runs on Android OS, for just $250.
