Leaked: Quad-core MT6589 Zopo ZP800 with 5-inch screen

Thank goodness! Just when we were beginning to think Zopo had abandoned their quad-core efforts in favour of the Zopo ZP950 phablet, we come across these juicy Zopo ZP800 details which claim the new phone will run the all new MT6589 CPU!

Mediatek have well and truly moved up in the world and are quickly becoming the choice for tier 2 and soon tier 1 phone makers such as Sony, however it is still the smaller domestic Chinese brands which are shaking up the phone scene. This time around it is Zopo who are getting in on a little quad-core action with leaked details of their new ZP800 phone.

Gizchina News of the week

The Zopo ZP800 is rumoured to be in testing as we speak and will feature a 5-inch 1280 x 720 display, 13 mega-pixel rear camera and an MT6589 CPU clocked at between 1-1.2Ghz.

Full details of the Zopo ZP800 have yet to be announced and sources close to Zopo are claiming the phone is still quite far from launch, however Chinese tech sites claim we could be seeing the ZP800 as soon as January 2013!

Along with Zopo, other domestic Chinese phone makers are planning to launch quad-core MT6589 phones early next year including Oppo, TCL, Lenovo and even large brands such as Sharp and Sony!

    looks nice.

    4G? LTE?

    Nice… wait, what?
    Oppo are going to launch an MT6589 phone early next year? How early? And what would be the point having the Find5 w/ Qualcomm S4 Snapdragon @ 1.5GHz?

    But this Zopo phone would be great if it had a FullHD phone. It is becoming the standard along with 2GB RAM.

      Just by looking at it, you can tell its in a lower league than the find 5

    Perfect phone for me quad core 5 inch 1280x720p. I hope they launch soon at a reasonable price but zopo has been a little pricier than other chinese brands so i’ll wait.

    i would buy this one and pay up to $350, i guess. i would pay tomorrow if it would be available.

    I have been looking forward to snag a 6589 for a long time now (about 8 months), but ever since the Nexus 4 release it’s hard to get excited about chinese phones even if the 6589 turns out to be as good as it is rumored to be. Hopefully the 6589 price will drop to be in the $150-200 price range to make it a competitor with the Nexus 4.

      I’m getting tired of people always bringing the nexus when the damn phone is about 500 dollars, if you want the nexus why don”t you buy it right now??

    Lets not forget that the beauty about ZOPO phones still is DUAL SIM feature. And we still dont have a high-end dual-sim phone from any of the leading phone makers. So yes, while Nexus 4 makes an inexpensive Quad-core Android phone, it has only 1 sim. For a single-sim phone, nothing can come close to Nexus 4.

    ZP800 will be one of the very 1st quad-core dual-sim phones and even though its not from an internationally known phone maker, we can put this model in high-end category.

    What I hope they do along with the above mentioned spec is :
    ATLEAST 8GB internal memory (obviously with an additonal 64GB Micro SD slot)
    2 GB RAM
    Camera with good low-light shooting capabilities (ZP900’s night shots with flash are burnt big time!)
    ATLEAST Jelly Bean 4.1 (ZP900 hasnt yet received a JB update!!)
