Zopo is one of those Chinese brands, which is trying to get the attention in the already crowded Western market as it showcased its products in the MWC2015 in Barcelona. After Zopo launched the 64-bit 4G enabled TOUCH (ZP530) smartphone, which due to its very similar looks to the iPhone 6 received some attention, the company is said to launch a new product ZP532 on March 20th.
The ZP532 does not have a huge difference as far as the specs of the device goes. It still has a 2.5D curved glass screen, metal buttons/frame and IML fashion texture cover, 5.0”HD IPS screen with ON CELL technology, equipped with 8.0MP/5.0MP camera combination.
In comparison to the previous model, the only difference is that ZP532 carries octa-core 1.4 GHz CPU, and only supports 2G / 3G network.
In general we can say that there is another iPhone 6 free-riding attempt as a lot of design has been copied from the iPhone 6. However, we cannot call it a clone, because it does not spot the all-metal design as the back shell is made out of textured plastic material.
In the end we think that it may be one of the Chinese companies’ marketing strategies to produce a very similar or even clone device of the iPhone 6 to get some media and mainstream users attention. We have already seen this from the big player like Lenovo and its Sisley phone, or ZTE Blade devices.
