Meizu Copies iPhone UI

Meizu's notorious miniOne will borrow even more directly from the iPhone's interface than expected while trimming prices, according to a forum post made by the company's president. The touchscreen handset will have both contact lists and text messages virtually inseparable from the Apple original, including minor elements such as the side column of letters for faster navigation. Click through for prices and interface images after the break.

Importantly, however, the Chinese firm said it had established pricing well below the iPhone. A standard edition with a camera will cost as little as $310 for the 4GB model, and $400 for the 8GB version; a basic version without the camera will retail for even less, reaching $195 and $285 at the same storage levels. An external camera attachment may become available for the stripped-down versions, Meizu said. The phone is still due to ship by the end of the year. [via MeizuMe]
