    [​IMG]It was a matter of time before we saw a Sony Ericsson Xperia arc Shanzhai clone hit Chinese shores. This handset, dubbed “DR”, is believed to be the world’s thinnest Shanzhai handset at 9mm (although not as thin as the actual Xperia arc at 8.7mm).
    However, looking at the pictures below, I would not be able to tell the difference between the two. Maybe in the hand it would be obvious, but it’s not so clear from the pictures alone. However, the hardware is different, it runs a 4-inch screen (unlike the 4.2-inch display on the arc) and is powered by the Android enabled MediaTek MTK 6516 chip. We have no idea what Android version this runs, although I’d be surprised if it was the latest version. This clone costs around the $150 mark. Check out some pictures below.
