What can you do if you are on a tight budget but want a high-end smartphone real bad? Or a one looking like a high-end smartphone? You can buy a lottery ticket and hope to win a small fortune, you can wait for a deal or, if you are in China, you can opt for a clone. The thing with clones is that they look (almost) identical to the original but come with a tad less impressive specs, so if what matters to you most is the looks, the clone would do just fine. The same goes for mid-range devices, such as the Neo T001, which was based on the Samsung Galaxy S III Mini.

While the Neo T001 is not 100% identical to the original Galaxy S III Mini, it would be hard to tell them apart if you do not look too close. There are few differences in terms of specs but the main advantage the T001 has over the Galaxy S III Mini is the price. The Chinese handset will be selling unlocked for 399 Yuan, which is about $65. Of course, no contract required.
The Neo T001 features a 4-inch with 480 x 800 resolution, a 5 megapixel rear camera and a 0.3 megapixel front-facing camera. The handset is powered by a dual-core 1 GHz MediaTek MT6517 processor and comes with 512 MB of RAM and as much internal memory. The phone also offers dual SIM support and a 1500 mAh battery to keep it going.
