First things first, the official retail price of the Zopo ZP999 for international customers is going to be $419, thats less than the Meizu MX4 and that’s with an LTE enabled Mediatek MT6595 processor, but there is even more.

Today we have received the final specifications of the Zopo ZP999 along with leaked press images of the new flagship Zopo, and were are quite surprised by a few of the details.

What has been added to what is basically an updated Zopo ZP998 is the faster processor, 4G LTE, 3GB RAM and F2.0 14 mega-pixel rear camera, but we already knew that. What’s new is the 5.5-inch 1080 display will be a Sapphire glass panel with an anti-glare coating, Mediatek’s HotKnot features will be included instead of NFC and the rear panel now has a finish called “Crazy Back”.

The silly names don’t stop there though, as the name of the ZP999 will officially be “Lion Heart”.

The addition of a Sapphire Glass display is the big news here and should go some way to adding that extra level of security to the large glass panel.

The eagle eyed among you will have noticed that the Mediatek processor in the Zopo ZP999 isn’t the same as the SoC found in the Meizu MX4, and is in fact the MT6595M chip. The last ‘M’ in the name designates it as the slower processor.

The MT6595M is a 2.0Ghz chipset with a small core speed of 1.5Ghz, where as the MT6595 is a 2.2Ghz chip with a small core speed of 1.7Ghz. The biggest difference though is the GPU, which is only clocked at 450Mhz in the MT6595M and at 600Mhz in the chip on the Meizu.

So the Zopo ZP999 is an interesting device, but is is worth saving a few dollars on the Zopo when the Meizu MX4 is not much more? We’ll wait to review the phone before we decide.

    SD card support up to 64 GB
    Dual SIM? Dual 4G-SIM?

    Price: $419… that’s $100+ than OnePlus One and a bit more than the Meizu X4… not cheap!

    Compared to the $450 meizu, for $419 we’d be paying for a less trustworthy brand, less sturdy build quality, lower res screen etc, it’d be worth it to some, but not quite the good deal that it would’ve been at a sub $400 price

    If it be 250$ – that will be interesting, but 400 for zopo is totally crazy

    Don’t think there will be a lot of takers for that price. Are they trying to be a premium brand now?

  8. October 10, 2014

    But wasnt that processor reserved to the lower HD lite version???

    Now they have shot themselves on the foot.

    RIP Zopo.

    They really deserve it.

    My Zopo C2 is still there waiting for a screen replacement… Their Gorillashit Crashgate you know what I mean…

    Think the marketing department has had a few drinks to many…. Look at the redbox image from press/marketing photos, it says:
    Feel tired? Then play games
    Bored? Then listen to some music.

    I’m no marketing expert but shouldn’t it be:
    Feel tired? then listen to some music
    Bored? then play games

    regarding the phone: I’ve said it before and ill say it again: 400,- WTF?

    2700mAh is way too low for a $419 phone. And on top of that Hotknot is not really the merket standard. Add that too incomplete frequency bands and then you have a disaster. Sorry but the Elefone P3000s beats the shit out of this in every day use.

    Yes in retard mobile games you get 5 fps more…. but who gives a damn. Jesus why do all phone makers produce crap like this and just try to sell it over event marketing? Invest some money in market research and engineering and less in useless features….
