A Hong Kong iPhone 5 look-alike is positioned to beat Apple to market, minus one very important feature: iOS.

ou can wait around like everybody else, languishing in a long line at the Apple Store, or you can zip over to Hong Kong and pick up an iPhone 5 well before everybody else. Sounds great, right? There’s a catch.
The iPhone 5 you’re getting may look like it matches all the leaked information of Apple’s upcoming smartphone, but dig a little deeper and you’ll notice some differences. Like Android. In a bizarre mixture of technology rivals, the phone is called the Goophone I5.
Details are sketchy on this look-alike, but it definitely cops the two-tone back look expected for the iPhone 5. Despite hints that the iPhone 5 could grow in screen size, the Goophone version comes with a 3.5-inch display.
