Sefree's Apollo is a Surface Studio clone that starts at $1,549

A company called Sefree is introducing the Apollo, a Windows 10 PC that looks and acts just like a Surface Studio 2, right down to the "Zero-Gravity Hinge" that's adjustable from 15 to 95 degrees. The biggest difference between the two devices though, is that the Apollo is half of the price.

It comes in 27- and 32-inch sizes, with Sefree claiming that the Apollo is the very first 32-inch 4K touchscreen PC. The little-known firm made some other bold claims as well, such as that it has the "same performance as Surface Studio 2, but only 1/2 of its price", as it said in an email to Neowin.

Unfortunately, this likely isn't true, given that it uses a lesser CPU and GPU than the Studio. The CPU options for the Apollo are an Intel Core i5-8350U or an i7-8550U, 15W quad-core chips that would normally be found in ultrabooks and convertibles. The GPU used is an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti (4GB). The Surface Studio 2 has a Core i7-7820HQ, a 45W quad-core chip found in gaming laptops, and either a GTX 1060 (6GB) or 1070 (8GB).

The Sefree Apollo comes with either a 256GB or 512GB SSD, or a 1TB or 2TB HDD. On the 27-inch side, you'll be able to pick up the Core i5 model for $1,549 with Super Early Bird pricing, and the i7 model for $2,049. For the 32-inch flavor, the i5 model will run you $1,699 and the i7 model will run you $2,199.

Sefree will be launching a Kickstarter campaign for the Apollo on September 3.
