iPhone 13 is still a superstar phone for people seeking premium smartphones, but even with its price cuts, it is not affordable by any means. Hence, the only way for people to get the iPhone experience on a budget is to get an iPhone clone running most likely on Android. In China, you can find a couple of iPhone clones at very low prices. And now, there’s a new one from a brand that was once very popular in India — LeEco. It latest phone seems like an exact replica of the Apple iPhone 13!
Called the LeTV Y1 Pro, the phone costs CNY 499 (approximately. Rs. 6000) and is essentially a budget Android smartphones. However, based on the renders released, the phone is not that different from the iPhone 13. Even the colours it comes in resemble that of the iPhone 13’s star colour variants — black, white and blue. Oh, and there’s the display notch present as well, if you were wondering.
The LeTV Y1 Pro seems to have copied the exact design blueprint from the iPhone 13. The front seems to have a large edge-to-edge display with slim bezels and the characteristic notch. This display is a 6.5-inch LCD panel and we doubt whether the bottom bezel on that phone be as slim as the one shown in the pictures. Even the sides are flat and so is the lock screen wallpaper! But LeEco forgot to copy the button layout!
Turn it over and there’s the iconic diagonal camera design, having the exact same layout — the lens, the flash, the mic; everything. Had it not been for the LeEco logo, it would have been difficult to differentiate it form the iPhone 13.
The rest of the phone is simply meh! You get a Unison T310 chipset paired to 4GB RAM and up to 256GB onboard storage. Yes, 256GB storage! The notch you see here holds a 5MP selfie camera, while at the back, you will see an 8MP main rear camera along with a AI secondary camera. A 4000mAh battery keeps the phone alive and you get a 10W charger in the box to charge it up.
Will it be as nice as the iPhone 13? Certainly not, considering the fraction of price you are paying for this phone. Moreover, this is a China-only launch for now. In India, the closest thing to an iPhone 13 you can buy is the iPhone 12 mini, which keeps on selling with tempting offers.
