Meizu M8 vs. iPhone: Are the Phones Clones?

Here are some photo renderings of the supposed Meizu M8 phone, a nearly identical iPhone clone said to have:

  • WinCE 6.0
  • 3-megapixel camera
  • 3.3-inch VGA+ screen
  • GSM support
  • TV-out, and more.

No one is sure whether these Meizu M8 concepts are real or fake, because Meizu has “borrowed features” from other products in the past.

My guess is that the concepts are fake. Meizu would have had to work their butts off to engineer an iPhone look-alike so quickly. Plus, if you look closely, you’ll notice on the photo below the Meizu logo on the M8 is of lower quality than the rest of the image:

Apparently, there’s a discussion going on about the Meizu M8 over at the China-based Meizu forums, but I don’t speak Chinese, so I posted a thread over at the English Meizu forums. If anyone knows anything, you guys can post on there – or on the Chinese forums if you speak Chinese.
