Meizu iPhone Copy Photos

Meizu has changed the name of its unreleased but already notorious iPhone imitation to the miniOne and narrowed down its release date, explorers of the company's forum have discovered. Once known as the M8, the Chinese phone is extremely close in style and features to Apple's device but shows clear differences in a new set of photos revealed at the same time as the name change. Where the iPhone has polished metal only around the front border and uses scratch-proof aluminum for the back, the Meizu clone opts for the chrome-effect surface across all but the very front.

Significantly, the phone is now being prepared for a launch in the fourth quarter of this year, arriving just a few months before its inspiration. Click through the break for the newest photo set. [via Meizu Me]
