Oppo N1 Clone T908 Goes On Sale For A Measly $99.99

So you’ve seen Oppo’s newest hotness the N1 and are looking to buy it, but it’s a little out of your price range no matter where you seem to buy it from.  Well don’t worry about a thing because China’s got your back with the newest KIRF, this time of course modeled directly after the Oppo N1, but for 1/6th of what Oppo is asking for their ultra-premium model.  Of course there are some small things that you’ll have to go without, but what’s cooler than showing all your friends the awesome new phone with the flipping camera at the top?  Nothing is the correct answer, and that’s what the manufacturers of the T908 are banking on.  For $99.99 you’re getting an off-contract Android 4.2-powered phone that features a 206° rotatable 8MP camera with dual-LED flash.  While that doesn’t exactly match up to the 13-megapixel camera found on the Oppo N1, it’s not half bad considering the ultra-low price.  You’re going to get a much smaller display to view those pictures on too, as the T908 only comes with a 4.5-inch 960 x 540 qHD screen instead of the 5.9-inch 1080p FHD screen of the Oppo N1 original.

We’re also looking at a 1.3GHz dual-core MediaTek processor with a Mali-400 GPU inside.  While this thing doesn’t quite compare with the latest and greatest out there, it will honestly probably run most stuff you try on the phone, especially at that low resolution.  The 512MB of RAM is also a bit disconcerting, as Android 4.2.2 isn’t exactly as light on memory usage as Android 4.4 KitKat is.  You’ll also be stuck with a super anemic 4GB of on-board storage, as removable SD card support isn’t listed anywhere in the specs, but that could just be an oversight on the listing.

Besides hardware the software itself is pretty interesting to see.  This KIRF manufacturer is really keeping it real fake as they’ve even cloned the look of Oppo’s Color OS Android skin.  The phone runs on 2G and 3G GSM spectrums, so it should be compatible in any country you go to, but you won’t see any of that fancy dual-SIM stuff here.  The T908 also comes in a white plastic shell, which doesn’t quite match up with the aluminum frame that the Oppo N1 sports, but that all comes with the price territory.  Seems like even Chinese manufacturers aren’t immune to this sort of KIRFing either!
