Apple is expected to make its flagship iPhone even bigger this year, so what do you do if you prefer smaller devices? You could check out the Soyes 7S, a super-cute iPhone 7 Plus clone that has a miniature 2.54-inch display.
Like a lot of iPhone clones from China, the Soyes 7S looks exactly like the real thing at first glance. It comes in the same color options, sports the same metal unibody design with integrated antenna bands, and has a round fingerprint scanner beneath its display.
But it’s easy to tell this isn’t the real thing because it’s significantly smaller than any iPhone ever made. The Soyes 7S measures just 95mm tall and 46mm wide, whereas the real iPhone 7 Plus measures a whopping 158.2mm tall and 77.9mm wide.
The real thing also boasts a 5.5-inch display with a Full HD (1920×1080) resolution, while the Soyes 7S has a 2.54-inch display with a painfully low 432×240 resolution. Its internal specifications leave a lot to be desired, too.
The device is powered by a 32-bit MediaTek processor clocked at 1.3GHz and just 1GB of RAM. It also has just 8GB of internal storage, though you can add a microSD card to expand that. It has one 5-megapixel camera on its back, and a 0.3-megapixel camera on its front.
It’s powered by a 600mAh battery that promises 1-2 days of usage in between charges, and all of the connectivity options you would expect from a smartphone, including Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GPS, and 4G LTE. The Soyes 7S runs Android, but it is skinned to look like iOS.
If the handset was any bigger, it would be just another iPhone ripoff with disappointing specifications that isn’t worth your attention. But its ultra-compact form factor makes it unique, and by far the cutest iPhone lookalike we’ve ever seen.
And we’re clearly not the only ones who think it’s interesting; the Soyes 7S has been crowdfunded in China, where it smashed its goal of raising 100,000 yuan in 30 days by raising over 1,362,000 yuan in just two weeks.
