Not to be outdone by its slightly more successful rival, Goophone returns to the market once again with the gold Goophone i5S, a shameless, Android-powered iPhone 5s knockoff complete with a new home button that looks startlingly similar to Apple’s fingerprint scanner… but that definitely isn’t. According to GizChina, Goophone has finally started shipping i5S models in some capacity, which already appear to be out of stock on Goophone’s website. No word yet on whether the gold Goophone sold out as quickly as the gold iPhone 5s, but the Goophone i5C is still available for smartphone buyers that need a Goophone right away.

The Goophone i5S features a 4-inch, 960 x 540 pixel display, 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 5-megapixel rear camera, 1GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. The knockoff costs just $199.99 off-contract, but there is no word yet on when Goophone will be able to replenish its stock. While you wait, watch GizChina‘s hands-on with the gold Goophone i5S below.
