Wow! Nokia N8 Rockchip Dual Core ARM 9 with Android 2.1 and 800X480 display. More than your ordinary China clone!
Last month we saw a Nokia N8 Clone sporting an Android Clone UI. Not really Android, just a skin that made it appear to look like Android.
Well, back in August a picture of a Nokia N8 Clone was found, complete with Android 2.1 and Android buttons.
More details surface from Yesky that says this is a dual core ARM 9?!
- Alloy Case
- 3.5″ Resistive (bright and clear)
- Android 2.1 with back, menu, home page, search buttons
- 115 × 60 × 14mm (real N8 113.5 x 59 x 12.9 mm)
- Rockchip ARM 9 (Not A9!) Dual Core 600MHz + DSP 500MHz (Real Nokia N8 ARM 11, 680MHz with Broadcom GPU)
- Smooth 720p playback apparently
- 128MB RAM << erm what?
- 256MB ROM
- 5.0 MP Camera Dual LED
- Headphone Jack
- MicroSD up to 32GB
- Bluetooth 2.0 +EDR with A2DP stereo headset profiles
- 1400mAh battery, good for 2 days use supposedly (not sure if it’s replaceable)
Well, that’s not your typical knock off bargain basement dual-SIM fanfare that we’re used to. Not sure what the price is.

We’ve seen the Android Nokia N8 China clone. Now check out iOS Nokia N8. Of course that’s neither iOS or the Nokia N8 but rip off versions. Oddly, the face of the N8 has TWO buttons which was seen in an extremely early proto N8 version.
What’s left? Just WebOS and WP7. No one cares about Bada and no one really knows what MeeGo phone final is going to look like.
Here’s another China Clone of the Nokia N8, (check out the Android N8) and it’s the same size as the Nokia N95 when closed. That’s possibly 4/5ths the size of the original
Unlike the other China Clone this morning, this one runs a Symbian knock off and not Android.
Another video popped up and along with that, a gallery of RM-626 clone.
For 140USD you get:
- 3″ touch screen
- 15mm thickness
- Dual band
- 1.3mp camera that takes VGA photos -_-
- rest of your generic clone features.
- Click to read rest of details from myreplicaphone – whole host of handsets you just need to avoid.
You might as well get yourself a Nokia 5530 (£79.99 on pay and go brand new)
versus real RM-626 – ridiculously slim, 4 row, 4″ screen 16:9, 4 row keyboard, menu button in middle.
The RM-626 still does not have an official name (originally called N98, later N9, but also E7 and N8-02) and now there is a clone. The demo girl calls it the Nokia N98, showing off the Nseries branding (the series let alone the name is debatable in the RM-626)
This is your usual dual-sim variety, coming with 2 batteries, (because each die in 30 minutes) and looking radically obese in comparison to the fantastically slim real RM-626. Amongst the list of superficial changes (smaller screen, colour scheme, overall design, camera, removable fake BL-4D), the main one is the 3 row (N97 mini keyboard) vs the newer 4-row keyboard (with spacebar in the middle). As for the software, it attempts to clone the fever inducing S60 5th edition.
The site watermarked in the video doesn’t seem to actually list this handset.
Green and white versions
What do you make of these pictures?
- it a real leaked Nokia C7?
- A China fake C7 (which would still be in the design of a real C7)
- Or entirely made up china clone?
Daily Mobile says that it supports the following features.
- 8MP camera with dual led flash.
- face detection
- 3.5 Capacitive Touch screen
- multi touch supported
- stereo speakers
Is this design touch only? It looks for some reason like it should be a portrait slider like the Palm Pre.
From the front, it kinda looks like it should be a slider which immediately reminded me of this comment yesterday on a post about the Nokia C3:

It may likely be real given Eldar’s tweet. He doesn’t comment on non-existent clones. This is supposedly gonna be around 270EUR
So there you go, C7 above is real.
Nokia N8 is no exception.
It’s quite a good clone. The first obvious differences is the camera module area just looks wrong – xenon, lettering and speaker grill are muddled up.
On the front, the Nokia logo is in the bottom and the screen is only 3.2″.
Other than that, all the internal specs are your standard clone/fake.
The UI mimics Symbian touch. Even sports a homescreen of some sort.
