Exclusive first hands on with the ZOPO ZP700


We get some exclusive hands on time with the unreleased ZOPO ZP700 smartphone ahead of its official launch!

ZOPO will be holding a launch event on the 21st November where we expect the company to launch the world’s first true 8-core smartphone, we also expect a few more phones to appear at the event too but at least one of them won’t be a surprise.

We have been lucky enough to have been sent a prototype sample of the all new ZOPO ZP700 Smartphone. The ZP700 represents an all new design philosophy for ZOPO and features a curved rear which wraps around just under the edge of the 4.7-inch display.

The model we have had time with is a blue version with a black front and we have told that their will be 2 additional colour options available once on sale.

Gizchina News of the week


Full specifications haven’t been released but from Antutu benchmarks we have determined that the hardware is very similar to that found on the ZOPO ZP820 which we reviewed last week. The processor is a 1.3Ghz quad-core MT6582, there is 1GB RAM, 4GB memory, 8 mega-pixel rear camera and Android 4.2.2.

Speaking of Antutu, the scores produced by the ZP700 are just as impressive as those on the ZP820. We ran Antutu a few times and each time were rewarded with benchmarks over 17,000 points!

    I like it. It’s like Zopo’s answer to the iPhone 5C. I really thought Zopo had lost it back during the time when they kept on re-releasing the ZP980 with different specs and names, but this time I think they’ve got it in the bag! I hope Zopo succeed in making themselves a global brand!

      Yep, its a nice looking phone and performs well to. I don’t expect it will be too expensive either 🙂

    Hi Andi,

    Can you try Antutu X on this phone as well? It’s supposed to prevent manufacturers from ‘over-optimizing’ their systems on Antutu benchmarks.

    Big manufacturers such as Samsung, HTC and LG have been found to use benchmark specific optimization that may not reflect the actual achievable performance. Just thought it would be nice to compare there is indeed any difference at all.

    All the same, 17000 is a pretty good score for budget SoC 🙂

      Zopo and the other major Chinese brands don’t usually do that, but it’s worth checking.

        I can give it a go 🙂

          Here are the Antutu X benchmarks from the ZOPO ZP700 😉

              ah in the other post. very impressive but what a shame that the display is not HD. I think that the MTK6582 phones didn’t ship yet. They all use the MTK6582m CPU which is why they only have QHD displays.

              Very impressive indeed. My Nexus 4 scores around the same. I too agree that it’s a shame it’s not at least 720p, but this phone likely will cost less than 200, and not that many phones have similar bang for buck ratio.

    Looks like Zopo read Sherwin’s comment 3days ago and have started sending you soon to be released units!
    I can hardly wait to see the 8 core that they’ll send you ahead of launch!

    Looks like everybody is moving towards the iPhone 5C look-alike trend.

    It’s getting boring…at some point

    It was up on their site yesterday, looks like they took it down. Anyway, just wanted to correct one thing, their website (well, now forum, since they took it down) says battery’s actually 1750mAh and video is 720p. And when I was checking it out yesterday they had five colours to choose from: white, yellow, pink, blue and black.
