The Goophone Y6 is an another entry from GPhone on the iPhone 4S clones category, this MT6577 Android OS knock-off is yet another iPhone clone to consider. It is a planned release in the same pacing as the KuPhone 4S S9 with MT6577 CPU as well.
This yet another iPhone 4S knock-off sports the latest MTK6577 CPU clocked at 1.2GHz Dual Core chip that is really a fast CPU specifications matched with a GPU at a processing power that is clocked at 800MHz. This phone is undeniably a decent and fast performer on HD gaming and multimedia experience.
It runs on Android 2.3.6 Gingerbread. The only thing that makes me think why it isn’t on Android ICS is because of the reason to maintain the near-perfect Apple’s iPhone OS user interface. You can see it on the pictures, from the settings screens and “slide-to-unlock” screen. Everything just feels like the same UI of the iPhone. Still, Gingerbread isn’t bad at all.
By the way, you can always switch on which UI you want to use on the settings. Just select between Apple iOS UI and Android UI.
It has support on many languages such as: Languages: English, Indonesian, Malay, German, Spanish, French, Italian, Portuguese, Vietnamese, Turkish, Russian, Arabic, Thai, Traditional Chinese, Simplified Chinese. Other languages can be requested upon your order check-out so it will be preset on the Goophone Y6 that will be shipped.
There is also a decent number on the memory side of the Y6, the RAM is 512MB while the ROM is a 4GB that is still expandable up to 32GB with an external SD card.
It has a 3.5 inches capacitive multi-touch screen, same as the real iPhone and also have Retina display at a DVGA resolution with 960×640 pixels. Its an indication of a very clear, crisp and vivid looking display. Touch points is up to 5-points touch max.
It make sense that this China phone isn’t a dual SIM capable but is only a Single SIM. Knowing that the supported SIM on the slot is only a micro-SIM, its definitely an iPhone clone. It has 3G/WCDMA support, totally unlocked and will work on any GSM carriers in the world.
Here’s why it is better than the KuPhone 4S, the Goophone Y6 has an 8.0 megapixels main camera at rear. Obviously, it will output better image shots. The secondary snapper is a 0.3 megapixel and has support with video calling even at Skype.

If you could notice, it is slightly more expensive than the KuPhone 4S S9. Well, that is somewhat a decision factor. I still like the KuPhone 4S over this one as it has better battery rating and I don’t think that the 8MP will be very much of good use to me. The user interface however just seems like a perfect asset.
Here are some of the interesting points of this Goophone Y6:
- good screen, accurate size and 1:1 physical appearance
- fast and high-end hardware specs
- 8MP camera
- has FM radio support, of course.
Still, with what you can see on the Goophone Y6, its obviously a decent iPhone 4S clone. It can be hardly recognized that it is actually a China phone and just an iPhone knock-off. With metallic casing and everything iPhone, the Goophone Y6 is definitely worth the bucks. You can check it out on the link below for more technical information and photos. Take note that the Goophone Y6 isn’t released yet. Expect that the posted specifications might change. Different resources have different specs details listed on their sites, its a little bit confusing; well honestly. So let’s just wait for the final confirmation of the information about this new Goophone Y6. I will update this once we finally have the verified data.
