Android powered iPhone 5 available to buy in China

The Goophone I5 is a knockoff that has many speculated iPhone 5 features

An Android powered smartphone that looks like the rumoured iPhone 5 is available to buy in China.

The knockoff, called the Goophone I5, has a 3.5in screen, rather than the 4in screen expected to be introduced with the iPhone 5, but it does feature the rumoured two-tone metal back and appears to be slimmer than the iPhone 4S's design.

The phone has a 5 mega-pixel camera, according to Goophone, and is said to have a 940 x 640 pixel display, not up to the Retina standard of Apple's iPhone 4S.

Goophone also sells the Goophone Y5 4S, the Goophone S3, and other familiar looking devices for cheap prices.

It is expected that the iPhone 5 will be unveiled at a special event on 12 September, but there has been no official word from Apple yet.
