Knocked-off Galaxy Note revealed

Samsung Galaxy Note very popular gadget as big smartphone with stylus pen. In December 2011, Samsung announced that one million Galaxy Notes were shipped in less than two months. But beware of knocked-off Galaxy Note. I found the information about that in a website. The knockoff Samsung Galaxy Note is almost similar as the original one, features a 5-inch touchscreen but having lower resolution (800×480).

The gadget equipped a 1GHz MTK6575 single-core processor and 512MB RAM and has a 5.0 rear-facing camera equipped on a 9.7mm thin body. Its thickness is exactly the same as Samsung Galaxy Note. It also have pen stylus.

I writing this issue just afraid it going to sell internationally. Currently,  the gadget was sold in Taobao, a Chinese language web site for online shopping, similar to eBay and Amazon, operated in the People’s Republic of China by Alibaba Group. It wouldn’t be called as the knockoff Galaxy Note if it doesn’t not brand as Samsung. The knock-off Galaxy Note also have packaging looks very similar to Samsung’s one, however there’s a slightly difference.
