The device will be made by GooPhone, which we best know as a maker of the fake HTC One and because of that can’t really recommend their products. Still, we gotta admit that the GooPhone X1 packs quite a bang for the buck.
Specs wise, it has a 4.7-inch FWVGA (854×480 pixels) screen, MediaTek’s MT6589 quad-core processor clocked at 1.2GHz, 2-megapixel camera on the back, 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera, 512MB of RAM, dual-SIM support and a 1800mAh battery, while Android 4.2 Jelly Bean is running the show.
