If you were to go through the list of big names in the smartphone industry, you would have a hard time finding Zopo there. The Chinese manufacturer launched some pretty decent phones in the past, but nothing too spectacular. Until now. The recently released ZP998 might score Zopo quite a few new customers and boost the company’s position significantly. The phone is priced at $299.99 and is available for pre-order from Zopo online store. The device should start shipping in 30 days.
5.5-inch Zopo ZP998 “true” octa-core phone
The main selling point of the Zopo ZP998 is its “true” octa-core MediaTek MT6592 processor. The 1.7 GHz chip has eight ARM Cortex-A7 cores and works along a 700 MHz Mali 450 GPU. The ZP998 is not the first smartphone to come with an octa-core processor, but the chip can employ all eight cores at the same time, which is something other chipsets are unable to do.
Processor aside, the phone has a number of other advantages, all worth commenting on. The Zopo ZP998 is actually a phablet offering 5.5-inch IPS display with 1080p resolution and a pixel density of 401 ppi. The BE Voice technology is capable of adjusting your voice volume depending on the level of background noise, in this way improving the quality of calls.
The device comes with two cameras, neither of which should give you a reason to complain about. The main shooter is equipped with a 14-megapixel sensor and an f/2.0 aperture. The front-facing camera snaps photos at 5 megapixels. The phone also offers dedicated camera button, 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal memory, microSD slot for storage expansion and a 2400 mAh battery. Connectivity features include USB OTG, 5Ghz Wi-Fi, Wi-Fi direct, NFC and Bluetooth 4.0 LE.
