Bluboo S8 is a Galaxy S8 clone for only $180

Posted by

If you want a Samsung Galaxy S8 but for about %600 less, Bluboo has stepped up to the plate in a shocking cloning job. The Bluboo S8 is named after the manner of the Galaxy S8, and is almost a 100% copy in terms of hardware. The display is 5.7 inches in size, with an 83% screen-to-body ratio, has an Infinity Display, has a rear fingerprint scanner, and a rear dual camera. This is a blatant rip-off of the Galaxy S8.


The major differences are in the internals – the processor is less powerful, it has less RAM, and the OS is a flavour of Android 7 called 360 OS. So, expect differences in performance and in the user experience. That is, if the offer of a Galaxy S8 clone that costs much less appeals to you.
