Cherry Mobile Philippines just announced their latest Windows Mobile powered dual-SIM smartphone they called Eclipse 2. The most intriguing part is that the design and specifications are very identical to an earlier smartphone — a Gigabyte GSmart S1205.

Here’s the poster of Cherry Mobile Eclipse 2 posted on their Facebook Page.

Here’s a photo of the Gigabyte GSmart S1205 and the specifications.

MediaTek MT6516 416MHz CPU
128MB RAM, 256MB ROM
3MP camera w/ VGA@30fps video
WiFi 802.11 b/g
FM radio with RDS
Bluetooth 2.1
Windows Mobile 6.5 Professional

still unsure if Cherry Mobile knew about this when they picked the
design too. This kind of incidents also happens with laptops and
