Being hailed legendary the iPhone 6’s high quality design standards will be always copied, that’s the harsh truth. We’ve already seen many quite impressive clones of the Apple’s recent flagship with the Dakele Big Cola 3 sporting 3GB RAM being one of the most eye-catching. Now, completely out of the blue, Russian brand Texet is launching a new iPhone-like smartphone to its domestic market. We’re talking about iX-maxi which though classified as a low-end sector device when it comes to hardware parameters, is almost like a carbon copy of the iPhone 6 in terms of body design language.
The best iPhone 6 clone we have seen so far
Measuring 138 x 67 x 7 mm the iX-maxi appears to be a bit thicker than the 6.9mm thin iPhone 6 from which it draws its design inspirations from. On the other hand the phone is a bit lighter than weighting 129 gram iPhone 6.
All this, along with the identical exterior design including a protruding back camera, makes the Russian handset almost hard to distinguish with the original iPhone except one little detail that is the Apple’s logo.
The small and unnoticeable at first sight feature, though being known all over the world, makes a great difference. Other differences include lack of a mute toggle at the phone’s side and a home button that can be taken for the one found in Meizu MX4.
Moving on to the iX-maxi’s list of specs, the phone quite unsurprisingly houses a 4.7-inch LCD display with 540x960p resolution and is powered by a 1.3GHz quad-core MediaTEk MT6582 processor paired with 1GB RAM and 8 GB of built-in storage. In the field of optics, the phone offers its future users an 8-megapixel rear camera with flash accompanied by a 2-megapixel front shooter.
In addition, the iX-maxi comes with a standard package of connectivity options including GPS, Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi and Nano-SIM card format. Sadly, the handset goes on sale lacking 4G LTE connectivity, which is a serious shortcoming as for the phone debuting in 2015.
Speaking of the pricing, the iX-maxi is said to cost something round $174, which makes it high probable to win loyal users among those who cannot afford the still pretty expensive original iPhone 6.
