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 Even if the Tegra 3 will be outdated in a couple of months.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?
