Finally the fake Samsung Galaxy SIII had surfaced in China. From the picture above, the size looks almost identical as the real unit. The fake comes in 2 different models or at least I noticed that there are currently 2 different fake SIII in the market.
The lower end version (picture above on the right) is distributed by HDC manufacturer and the fake device is called HDC Galaxy S3. It comes in 4.7-inch display of 800x480 screen resolution. It has Android 2.3 Gingerbread and was promised to deliver Android 4.0 ICS as well. It spots 5MP rear camera and 0.3MP front-facing camera. The HDC Galaxy S3 is powered by a 1GHz processor with 512MB RAM. It also has a battery capacity of 2100mAh.
For those who are interested, I believe you can purchase it from android-sale.com.

The higher end version looks even more similar to the original S3. The device has a screen resolution of 1280x720 resolution (similar to the original) except that it is not Super AMOLED display. Device is powered by 1.2GHz dual-core processor with 1GB RAM. It has a rear camera of 8MP and a front-facing camera of 1.3MP. Internal memory of 16GB and its battery capacity is 2500mAh which is similar to the Samsung Galaxy Note. The original Samsung Galaxy SIII has only a battery capacity of 2100mAh.
Not forgetting the fake S3 is running with the latest Android 4.0.4 ICS. You can get all that with 271.50 USD. It comes with both Pebble Blue and Marble White.
