Chinese device maker Zopo has introduced one of the first phones to feature MediaTek’s new “true” 8-core processor. The Zopo ZP998 features a 5.5 inch display, an MT6592 processor, and 2GB of RAM.
The phone is already available for pre-order for $299 — but unfortunately it’s unlikely to support 3G networks in the United States.
The Zopo ZP998 has a 1.7 GHz, octa-core ARM Cortex-A7 processor with ARM Mali 450 graphics, a 1920 x 1080 pixel display, a 14MP rear camera and 5.0MP front camera, and Android software.
It also has a few bonus software features including the ability to turn pages in an eBook by waving your hand over the screen or launch certain apps by drawing letters with your finger on the screen.
The phone supports WiFi, Bluetooth, NFC, and WiFi direct.
