Zopo outs ZP80+; Octacore phone for less than Php7.5K!

Smartphones with Octacore chipset is slowly becoming a hot commodity in the market, but oftentimes these handset are rather expensive. That’s certainly not the case though with the recently announced Zopo ZP80+ which only costs ¥999 or little under Php7,500.

Details about the ZP80+ are few and far between. However, it’s been said that it’ll sport a 5-inch 1080p LTPS display to boot, as well as 14MP rear camera with an f/2.2 optics.

Zopo ZP80+

Unfortunately, unlike most octacore smartphones, the ZP80+ doesn’t utilize the ARM big.LITTLE technology and instead runs on eight Cortex-A7 processors which, presumably, will all be active even for simple tasks.

Nevertheless, the handset is an interesting handset, primarily because of its dirt cheap retail price. The only question now is which local company will rebrand the ZP80+ and bring it to our shore.

    Wut??? Ano daw??? Pano naging jurassic ang Cortex-A7?? I don’t think you understand what you’re saying sir.

    • Bulatete says:

      Siya ata naiwan sa jurrasic age..haha

    • Conan Miranda says:

      I think what the writer means about being jurassic is being powerful. Formidable. Gargantuar.

      He’s not pointing to the Jurassic Era. I think you’re the one who’s taking mess here.

      @conan

      10 out of 10 techie will probably say : “wut the hell are you talking about, noob”

      We Pinoys always associate the word “jurassic” to anything that is old, mildly incapable and unhip.

    • Ronnie Bulate says:

      With all due respect to your relatively low comprehension, Mr. Chito Miranda, based on the context of the writer’s sentence, it was meant to be in a negative light. Read it again, Mr. Miranda.

      With all due respect mga sir. This is why it is called jurassic. It doesn’t mean you have an octa core processor you have the latest technology. Meaning of A7 from the said processor is that the architecture of the processor is 7th generation. The latest generation now is Krait which is A15 That is why it is called Jurassic. They returned the old 7th architecture for marketing strategy to fool people that they are using a quad core octa core processors but old architecture. Same as Quad core compare to Quad core i5 Octacore i7 processors by intel.

      @ECE Stop embarassing yourself. If you have limited knowledge of the topic, do not post at all. Ako ang nahihiya para sayo e. A7 is one of the newer generation SoCs. It came out the SAME TIME as A15. It can be a stand-alone power-efficient chip or can be a part of the big.LITTLE setup. The number does not signify generation, stupido! Ciao!

    • ECE says:

      This is far beyond ignorance @Ronnie what you posted doesn’t mean they came out on the same batch they have the same technology. The batch per architecture though different differs from power efficiency and performance. So although its a quad core processor it may be power efficient but their batch is less power compare to series a15 which has a better performance although the same quad core technology.

    • ECE says:

      What I am trying to say is the architecture of the processor. It differs from power efficiency and performance. That even though you have the same quad core technology you will never have the same performance given a different architecture and of course power efficiency affects the performance of the processor. 1Ghz of a7 differs from 1Ghz of a8 and a9 and so on. It may look what I said that it was a generation but it may seem to match that one based on architecture i mean.

    • Ronnie Bulate says:

      P*ta di ko maintindihan English mo. Magtagalog ka na lang brad! For the last time, Cortex A7 is a relatively NEW GENERATION architecture. Ang Krait is NOT THE SAME as A15. Do your research. Tigilan na natin ito. Kahit si Ronnie Bulaong inedit na yung article to remove the “Jurassic” term dahil, obviously, mali sya.

    999RMB for TD-SCDMA version which 3G network is not compatible in other countries.
    most likely WCDMA version will cost more +100

  3. Napopo says:

    How the writter say that Cortex-A7 chip is jurassic?? hmmmm he is not a certified techie… i think

    • Ronnie's Bulalo says:

      Techie =/= Geek

      Actually, being called a techie is actually derogatory because it now actually refers to people who pretend to be a “know-it-all guy”; people who pretend that they’re cool because they own the latest gadgets in town without knowing its real uses.

  4. abuzalzal says:

    AS IF this thing will land on our shores .. may currency conversion pang nalalaman…. GIZCHINA got u covered Mr Bulaong.

    And LOL @ the jurassic description.

  5. daboy says:

    Just to let you guys know…
    Techie =/= Geek

    Techies are people who just love anything hi-tech without giving a damn on how about a tech works. A geek on the other hand, isn’t just a person who love things, he/she finds out how a certain thing works and so on.

    Needless to say, the author is just a Techie.

    JPY 999 is only around PHP 450 . How come PHP 7,500 na to?

  7. jackolitos says:

    Can’t believe that there are still a lot people who read news on this non-credible and money-centric site after that “Official SGS5 Specs” fiasco.

    This site is seriously rotten to its core.

  8. err says:

    That is YUAN not Japanese Yen

  9. Digest says:

    Dapat talaga gumawa or lumipat na lang tayo ng “local tech blog” for daily news.

    Kung hindi kase copy / paste nangyayare sa ibang tech blogs eh mali din mga information. Yun nga lang dito kagad natin nalalaman mga ibang local tech news. Lalo na sa mga major local telcos.

    Dapat “Yugashit” or “YugaYuga” name ng new blog site, hehe.

  10. eric says:

    Mali nanaman research niyo yugatech. Nakalagay na nga source pero throughout the article consistent na mali. It’s the zopo 980+ po hindi 80+ lang. Please double check your articles before posting them.

    • Doc Martens says:

      Just like what sir Abe said on the SGS5 “official” specs article and was later on deleted, “Controversy creates cash. For every reader we supposedly lose, we gain a dozen more for our explosive title.” (See: http://imgur.com/z5VvM36)

      In this article’s case, it’s the wrong product name, inconsistency throughout the article and wrong currency. It’s all about the MONEY.

      On the lighter note, there’s always the more reliable, non-biased and truthful Philippine Tech blogs like PinoyTechBlog, CebuTechBlogger and HardwareZone.

      ^ Bobo! Dami mong alam!

    I’ve been hearing your whining and mockery all the time. get a life punks! take it or leave it.

  12. MadMax1321 says:

    999 Yen is equal to only 431 Philippine Pesos… :|

  13. PinoyTechBlog says:

    ENGOT yung writter neto haha ang BOBO, post ng post mali naman yung info, If I’m the owner of Yugatech I will fire this bullshit writter Mr. Ronnie Bulaong that doesnt know everything.

  14. PinoyTechBlog says:

    mayaman yata toh si writter Ronnie Bulaong….

    MAY SARILING MUNDO.

    just delete this article pra wlang away. dming warfreak d2.

    Hi, I’m confused re the following statement:

    “the ZP80+ doesn’t utilize the ARM big.LITTLE technology and instead runs on eight Cortex-A7 processors which, presumably, will all be active even for simple tasks.”

    I’ve read Cortex-A7 from this site http://www.arm.com/products/processors/cortex-a/cortex-a7.php, so from this, isn’t Cortex-A7 used in ARM big.LITTLE processing technology?

    Both this yuga article and the article from link are contradicting.

    Please confirm. Thanks.

    • vhen says:

      Ah, i think i understood now. Cortext A-7 is part of big.LITTLE tech. this phone does not have big.LITTLE tech but it only uses Cortex-A7, the LITTLE part of big.LITTLE tech. right?

  17. Slick says:

    Fools. The hell they care about your comments. As long as you flock this site, then its all good for them. Do you think they are writing here ‘for the service of the filipino blah blah’? They are writing here to earn cash. Hi hi hi.

    • vhen says:

      and then here you are in comments, cha-ching for them haha. and then here i am replying to comment, another cha-ching for them hahahaha

    Hahaha! Make it rain guys. You guys are hilarious. Kawawa naman ang writer.

    sumagi lang sa isip ko yung generation dahil sa generation made by intel. 2nd 3rd and so on.
