The Chinese smartphone world is going 8-core crazy thanks to Mediatek’s MtK6592 processor, the race is now on as to who will launch first? Could it be Zopo or Sony?
Zopo’s second generation Zopo C2 (possibly named the ZP1000 for international markets) is one of the hottest talked about Chinese Android phones at the moment and with news that it may launch in Beijing as early as next month rumours are intensifying!
Zopo ZP1000 specifications
Although Zopo haven’t officially released anything about the 8-core MTK6592 phone we have seen a number of leaks and heard from trusted sources as what to expect.
Gizchina News of the week
Apparently the Zopo ZP1000 will be a 5-inch 1080 phone based around an improved, both in styling and quality, Zopo C2 (ZP980), of course an 8-core MTK6592 chipset will be on board which could be running at as fast as 2Ghz and 2GB RAM sounds about right for this calibre of phone.
