Novo7Tech teased on their FB page that they will be bringing in Zopo Mobile, another China smartphone brand, to the Philippines. Besides the teaser, they also posted a photo of an unidentified black Zopo smartphone.
Anyway, a quick search in the internet revealed a phone that looks like the one on the photo. The smartphone could be Zopo Mobile’s ZP998. There are no assurances yet, but if it is the ZP998, then the specs won’t disappoint. The smartphone boasts a 1.7Ghz MT6592 octa-core processor, a 5.5-inch 1920 x 1080 full HD display, 16GB of storage, 2GB RAM, NFC, MHL, OTG, and a 14MP f/2.0 rear shooter.
The specs look impressive, to say the least. And according to reviews, it’s on par with other powerful China brand smartphones (like THL). For those curious about the phone, here is an article by GizChina comparing the Zopo ZP998 with the THL T100s (also brought in by Novo7Tech).
The arrival of Zopo could only mean good news for us , the consumers. Having more competition in the local mobile market could lead to better quality products and lower prices. It will make the market more competitive, and will improve the way local and international handset providers do their business.
