Breaking: Zopo ZP990 will get 8-core MT6592 update


Our sources at Zopo have discovered that an 8-core MT6592 update is heading to the larger screen Zopo ZP990 Captain S.

The news, although unsurprising, is interesting for anyone in the market for a 8-core phablet form a more mainstream Chinese phone brand. The current version of the ZP990 is the largest Zopo phone available with a 6-inch FHD display.

The top of the range version has a 13 mega-pixel rear camera, 2GB RAM, dual-SIM, micro SD card and 32GB of onboard storage. The updated mode, believed to be named the Zopo ZP990+ will receive the 1.7Ghz 8-core MT6592 chipset which is also found in the Zopo ZP998.

    Its too bad Zopo does not give anything about you when you have purchased a zopo product .there are many customers on the zopo forum that have questions but nobody answers .Even the moderators dont have answers if their questions are not answered by Zopo offcials.

      I hace a Zopo C2 with a broken touchscreen.

      They know this model first batches were defective, yet they want me to purchase the Gorilla glass update instead of applying the warranty.

      Zopo never again.

    My only concern with Zopo phones is that the battery capacity on their phones is a little bit low for many users. I think that the 8-Core CPU will certainly have higher power consumption than the current 4-core. Therefore the new version will have even less autonomy than the current. I have a Zopo C2 and I have power sources everywhere I go – so I am fine with the smaller battery. However many users still prefer to have higher autonomy and not to have to count the dropping battery % every 10 minutes.
