    I was just searching around on aliexpress and found this player: 
    https://www.aliexpress.com/store/product/2015-NEW-8GB-7th-FM-Mp3-Mp4-MP5-Player-with-Camera-Game-Video-1-8-inch/201947_32380572304.html
     
    The screen size looks 2.4 to me not 1.8. 
    Camera on the back like Kogan. The SoC is maybe ATJ2237 too.
    There's no info about the firmware or FLAC support.
    It's interesting, sadly the product details are not very informative.
     
    I've found the player on globalsources:

    Anyone has experience with this player?

    It doesn't seem to have any  of the form factor of the other Kogan clones.

    Do you think Legend can take on Kogan?? [​IMG]

    People who are looking for Kogan successor should check Newsmy A33. The main difference from Kogan is Newsmy A33 is a bit warmer and less powerful.

    Since the battery was unable to hold a charge and the player is able to work when connected to a powersource, even with the mains switch in "off", I decided to make a batery case. I am using 3 normal batteries and got the player to work a couple of weeks. It's big and bulky, but it works.

    Finally, i have found my Kogan replacement: mpman MP259 8GB

    I am still testing it, but Pop EQ settings (as far as i remember) sounds very close to Kogan in terms of detail, dynamics and soundstage. The UI is very similiar too. http://www.head-fi.org/g/a/1116004/mpman-mp259-8gb/
    The player's chassis is aluminium with plasic parts on the front. Best 40€ i have spent for a while.

    Neat. MPMan is the brand that gave us one of the very first mp3 players, if not the first. How old is it?
