Zopo have confirmed that their flagship ZP980 5-inch Android phone will soon get updated with a faster MT6589T Turbo processor.
The Zopo ZP980, which retails for 1499 Yuan here in China, is already a high spec phone and boasts a quad-core CPU, 13 mega-pixel rear camera and also a 5-inch 1080 display, but the Chinese phone world is a fast paced place and to keep up with rivals Zopo have announced that they will update the ZP980 to the more powerful MT6589T SoC!
Both the standard 1GB RAM, 16GB ROM and Ultimate 2GB RAM, 32GB ROM versions of the Zopo ZP980 will be updated to the 1.5Ghz MT6589T chip, which also sports a faster GPU. No news on if this update will increase the price of the phone, or indeed drop current ZP980 prices, but from Zopo’s past launches we shouldn’t have long to find out.
