Zopo C2 MT6589T white International version spy photos! Review coming soon!


We have just received these exclusive spy photos of the new white International Zopo C2 sporting the new, faster quad-core MT6589T Mediatek processor.

It’s always a nice surpise to wake up and find an email full of spy photos but it is even more so when the phone being leaked is actually an international version of a popular Chinese phone with updated hardware!

The Zopo C2 has already been selling like hot cakes since it’s launch earlier this year, but now with a faster 1.5Ghz Mediatek MT6589T SoC on board it is likely to jump to the front of many Android phone fan’s shortlist.

In addition to the new SoC our sources at Zopo have also confirmed that the International version of the Turbo Zopo C2 will have 16GB ROM, a Gorilla Glass 5-inch 1080 display and a newly designed battery case!

Zopo C2 MT6589T International updates

  • 1.5Ghz quad-core Mediatek MT6589T processor.
  • 16GB ROM.
  • New battery case.
  • Gorilla Glass display!

Most exultingly for us though is that Zopo are despatching our review unit later today, so keep posted for a full Zopo C2 Turbo review!

The Zopo C2 MT6589T model will be available from late June to buy from the official Zopomobilestore.

    WTF 16GB RAM ?!!!

    • June 15, 2013

      ROM

  3. June 15, 2013

    more like 16gb rom anyway the black zopo c2 version has been released in china for about a week already. I am just waiting for someone to release the android 4.2 rom to flash on it

    what about the RAM and the battery capacity?

    • Tom
      June 15, 2013

      1Gb Ram, 2000 mAh 🙁

    is zopo c2 and zopo zp980 same??

    • June 15, 2013

      There are 3 versions of zopo c2 and 1 version of zp980
      C2 : 1gb ram + 4gb rom(mtk6589) 1gb ram +16gb rom (mtk6589t) and 2gb ram+32gb rom (mtk6589t)
      Zp980 1gb ram +16gb rom (mtk6589) also the zp980 is the international version of the zopo as it comes preinstalled with android os which in china they do not provide, the back cover is also slightly different finishing compared to the 4gb version. Otherwise they are pretty much same specs

      • June 15, 2013

        where did you find c2 with 2gb ram? i want one 🙂

      • M M
        June 16, 2013

        I read somewhere that c2 screen is much inferior than zp980. Is that true?

        • June 16, 2013

          I have heard that the C2 doesn’t use the same Sharp display, but this might be different for the new model

          • M M
            June 17, 2013

            Thanks! Now we are waiting for your detailed review

            • June 17, 2013

              I’m excited about this one! Hopefully the C2 and the iOcean Elite will arrive at the same time 🙂

            June 29, 2013

            I have C2 and did side by side compare with zp980 – didn’t see ANY difference in the screen quality. Else, I believe, indeed they are different as stated above, since the zp980 screen is sitting bit higher in the frame of the phone.

    • Simon
      June 15, 2013

      No they are different phones.

    • June 15, 2013

      Besides the above specs, the screen on the zp980 is better quality apparently.

  6. June 15, 2013

    I don’t know if this helps or hinders.

    • June 15, 2013

      Thanks but i am not sure if it works as the processor is MTK 6589T and not the normal one. I am not sure if it really makes a different though as the turbo version is actually an overclocked 6589

    Gorilla glass? Now it sounds more interesting then the jiayu g4.

    • howea
      June 15, 2013

      Doesn’t the G4 have Gorilla Glass 2

      • June 15, 2013

        i assume they both don’t have corning products. maybe the chinese similar glass.

    Be prepared for maximum two updates from Zopo and then company forget about this model. (like for ZP900 / ZP300). Never Zopo again.

    • Matheus
      June 15, 2013

      Now i’m scary. Is that true? I got a umi x2, but, for me, umi nevermore. So i was planning to buy the zopo c2 non-turbo.

      • Manos
        June 15, 2013

        Why the no turbo?

      • Lola
        June 15, 2013

        Are you disappointed with UmiX2?

    June 15, 2013

    In which regard is this phone ‘International’ ?

    • June 15, 2013

      It is international as the China version runs purely on Aliyun Os as they do not provide option to switch to android

      • Simon
        June 15, 2013

        What exactly is Aliyun Os ?

        • June 15, 2013

          It’s Android but modified by Alibaba

    • June 15, 2013

      Actually, most serious webstores are flashing Android 4.2 on phone befroe shipping, when Ali OS is pre-installed

    White phones are FUGLY!

    I’ve got the black C2 very nice & classy.

    • vivo
      June 15, 2013

      yeah, black version looks better. Does C2 16gb exist in black?

      • June 16, 2013

        Like i said at the moment only in china the black 16gb 1.5ghz mtk 6589 T is available online webstores at the moment seem to sell only white but it should be instock in arund mid to late june i think

    • Andrew
      June 20, 2013

      I would prefer black, but I also heard that the LED buttons are pretty pathetic on the Zopo C2. At least with the white version, the buttons will be easier to see.

    Dear Andi,

    how sure you are, that “Zopomobilestore” is indeed Zopo’s official store,
    and not a fake (like with multitude of fake jiayu stores we’ve read about here, on GizChina.com)?

    Also, does anyone have any positive experience buying from them?

  12. Arun Raj
    June 15, 2013

    Battery is just 2000 mah 🙁

    • Manos
      June 15, 2013

      +1

  13. Yuki
    June 15, 2013

    I see a fatter backplate, so maybe there will be a bigger battery?

    • June 16, 2013

      No there wont be different battery its just that they change the finishing of the back plate to be from a fake carbon fiber finish to a matte plastic

  14. June 15, 2013

    Does it support micro SD?

  15. Rayan V
    June 15, 2013

    I’ve ordered mine from Pandawill already, they should be shipping on monday-wendsday! This phone looks promising

    I’ll post an user review once i get my hands on it!

    Hey guys,
    I broke my C2’s screen on the second day (just the glass, but touch stopped working) any idea where I can find a replacement screen?

    • Manos
      June 16, 2013

      How did you that?
      Ask the shop you took it they will help you.

      • June 16, 2013

        I saw replacement screens (spare parts) on Zopomobiles Shop…maybe it’ll help :/

        • geHuC
          June 16, 2013

          @pa5t1s Yeah saw the one on zopomobile as well but its 100$ for both LCD and touch and my lcd is fine :/ but if nothing else shows up I’ll have to get it regardless (could’ve gotten a s3 for 380$ dammit)

      • geHuC
        June 16, 2013

        Fell from the coffee table, around 30-40cm max ;(
        Wrote a mail to the shop but no response.

    June 16, 2013

    There are lots and lots of resellers and makers of the JiaYu G4, with different levels of build quality, could anyone recommend a seller, thanks guys.

  21. Andrew
    June 20, 2013

    Just ordered one of these from zopomobileshop.com. It appears to be on back order despite the product being listed as “In Stock” on the website. Hopefully they don’t take to long to ship it…

  22. shindros
    June 26, 2013

    Yes I broke the screen on my c2 after 6 days, was in my back pocket walking to the train, when I got it out of my pocket the screen was fractured, light s up but insensitive to any touch.This is my second zopo that has had this problem.Great looking and performing phone but very weak screen.

    June 30, 2013

    Andy with the introduction of the new phones, would you still stick with the G4 or has something else caught your eye, lol.

    • June 30, 2013

      After having the FAEA F1 for a few days I would say it is worth looking at, and I am quite excited about the FAEA F2 also.
