5.7-inch Tegra 3 phablet with 32 MP camera in the works? Only in China…
Oh, the battle of megapixels! So important according to some, so pointless according to others. Well, no matter what side are you on, you’ll definitely chuckle at hearing this – there’s a Chinese OEM that’s planning to intro a phablet with a 32 MP rear-facing camera.
Chuckle and then probably scream at the top of your lungs – waaaaaant! Not so fast. After all, if you’re just looking for a camera phone with a packed sensor, the Nokia 808 PureView is still your guy, having a 41 MP snapper.
The thing is, unlike the PureView, Zopo (not Oppo)’s bad boy has a couple of other aces up its sleeve too. Like a humongous 5.7-inch display, a 1.6 GHz quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3 CPU, a 5 MP front-facing cam and “3D Stereo Gaming”.
Hmm, that actually doesn’t sound bad, does it? Even if the Tegra 3 will be outdated in a couple of months. And, just my two cents, a 5.7-inch screen is way too large.
The above mentioned details are official, but unfortunately they’re all we’ve got on the unnamed 5.7-incher at this point. Well, that, a vague May ETA and a rather blurry pic. Which is why we ask for your patience before judging the beast.
The “creature” definitely sounds promising, but what if it’ll come with a measly 1,800 mAh battery, 512 MB of RAM and 4 GB of on-board storage? Everything’s possible in China, right? Not to mention the megapixels are, like it or not, just numbers. Or that the chances of someone like Zopo releasing a gadget in the West are slimmer than a Victoria’s Secret model before a fashion show. Mmmm, Miranda Kerr! Ahem, you get the point, don’t you?
