Ulefone announces the launch of the archetypal iPhone X clone, the Ulefone X
The iPhone X was released over six months ago, and has inspired a number of devices across all price segments. Just last week, we witnessed the launch of Xiaomi’s flagship, the Mi 8—a device that did its best to mimic Apple’s marquee offering. The latest to go down that road is Ulefone’s new device, the egregiously named Ulefone X.
If the name wasn’t an obvious enough hint, the Ulefone X is a copy of the iPhone X. It manages to do that with as much swagger as it can afford though, which is commendable. Silver linings and all that.
The device features a 5.85-inch FHD+ display—notched, of course. The company claims it has a 91% screen-to-body ratio, although we’ll need to have the device go through our tests before considering that statement factual. Like the iPhone X, the Ulefone X features a glass body. It also supports Qi Wireless Charging.
Camera-wise, it sports a dual rear camera setup comprised of a 16 MP and 5 MP sensor couple. Of course, the sensors are vertically-aligned, exactly like on the iPhone X. There’s a single 13 MP camera at the front of the device for selfies.
The Ulefone X is powered by MediaTek’s Helio P23 and features 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage. It gets its juice from a 3300 mAh battery, and runs on Android 8.1 Oreo. Sadly, the device fails to replicate the iPhone X in all aspects, as it opts for a traditional fingerprint sensor instead of Apple’s Face ID, and that’s a shame.
