Samsung barely took the wraps off its new-generation Galaxy S5 flagship, and a striking clone is already available as the Goophone S5.

Just a couple of days ago, the new Samsung Galaxy S5 made its highly-anticipated debut at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2014, which kicked off on Feb. 24 and runs through Feb. 27.

The new Samsung Galaxy S5 naturally raised a lot of interest, as it was among the most-rumored devices to come out this year. Goophone has wasted no time and has managed to clone the brand new Galaxy S5 in under two days. The new Goophone S5 looks nearly identical to the Galaxy S5, save for the branding, and it has already popped up on the company's website with a $299.99 price tag.

The design is not the only aspect in which the Goophone clones the Samsung Galaxy S5. The Goophone S5 comes with a 5-inch full HD display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, packs a "true octa-core processor" clocked at 2GHz, and has 2GB of RAM. The clone also has 32GB of internal storage capacity and a microSD card slot for additional memory. Other specs include a 13-megapixel rear camera with "LED flash light" and a 5-megapixel front camera. The operating system is listed as "Android 4.2 OS, with Google Play."

"Goophone has always been forward best smartphone," the company advertises on its website. "With new design, this new generation Goophone S5 you have never seen it. Goophone S5 is world's first smartphone powered 2GHz MediaTek MT6592 true octa-core processor, along with 2GB DDR3 RAM, bring better operating experience to us."

As a reminder, the Samsung Galaxy S5 sports a 5.1-inch full HD Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. Under the hood, it packs a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor clocked at 2.5GHz, coupled with Adreno 330 graphics and 2GB of RAM. Other features include 16GB of internal storage capacity, a microSD card slot for additional memory, a 16-megapixel rear camera, and a 2-megapixel front shooter. The Galaxy S5 runs the latest Android 4.4.2 KitKat out of the box, with Samsung's TouchWiz UI on top.

The Goophone S5 will surely not match up to the real thing, but having a Samsung Galaxy S5 clone in under two days must beat some kind of record.
