The Chinese took to clone the Samsung Galaxy S9

Presentation of a new generation of Samsung flagships is expected only at the end of February at the MWC 2018 exhibition, but Chinese manufacturers have already started to use their copies of the Galaxy S9. Early next year, the VKworld brand will release a model with a screen that occupies 92% of the front surface.

What do they promise?


The company did not bother with the name - the novelty will be released as VKworld S9. It will receive a 5.99-inch display with 2K-resolution and an aspect ratio of 18: 9. The renderer shows a smartphone with a minimal frame at the bottom. If the goal was to achieve the maximum similarity with the Galaxy S9, then the designers hurried. In Samsung decided to leave the front panel almost unchanged. In any case, without photos of a real device, the framelessness remains questionable.

The heart of VKworld S9 will be 10-core chipset MediaTek Helio X30, RAM 6 GB, and built-in - 128 GB. For autonomy, the battery with a capacity of 5000 mAh is responsible. The characteristics of the dual camera are not specified (as in most Chinese, the second module can be a usual decoration).

When to expect?

Sales of VKworld S9 will begin in the spring of 2018, the estimated price of the gadget is $ 300. Recently, a similar device announced Bluboo, and this is only the beginning - by the time the Galaxy S9 comes out, there are a dozen equally mediocre copies of the flagship on the market.
