ZOPO Speed 8 is turning out to be a powerful smartphone. The company has already confirmed a bunch of features on the flagship device and a few days back, it revealed the final design.
The ZOPO Speed 8 flagship is going to feature a similar design as its predecessor. The shape remains the same, and you get a metal frame as well. However, there are a few subtle changes, like the protruding camera sensor, dual-LED (dual tone) flash, and a fingerprint sensor below it. Further, the back is textured, unlike the smooth finish on the predecessor.
As for the specs, ZOPO has already confirmed most of the hardware details. The ZOPO Speed 8 will be one of the first smartphones in the market to come with the brand new Helio X20 deca-core processor. There will be 4GB of RAM on board, with a fingerprint scanner at the back, 3600mAh battery, USB Type-C and NFC. At the rear, you will find a powerful 21MP Sony IMX230 sensor while up front, there will be an 8MP selfie camera. The phone is also confirmed to feature a 5.5-inch display, but we are unsure about the resolution. Also, it will run on Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS out of the box.
As you can see, it looks like ZOPO has really stepped up their game this year, as the Speed 8 is turning out to be quite a powerful flagship smartphone. The company will unveil the device at MWC 2016 in Barcelona on February 24 at 10.30 am. Further, the company’s brand ambassador and MotoGP World Champion, Jorge Lorenzo will be hosting the event.
Given that the phone is confirmed to feature such powerful specs, we just hope that ZOPO prices the Speed 8 aggressively. We would like to see an affordable Helio X20 powered device in the market, to take on other Snapdragon-based smartphones.
Stay tuned for more details in the coming days. Meanwhile, let us know what you think about the Speed 8 specs and design.
