ZOPO has been teasing its upcoming ZOPO Speed 8 flagship for the past few weeks. This is the successor to the popular Speed 7 smartphone which was announced last year. The phone will be powered by the powerful Helio X20 deca-core chipset, which will also make it one of the first phones to come with this SoC. While we have not yet seen the performance of the chip in real life, with four Cortex A72 cores and six other efficient Cortex A53 cores, Helio X20 is going to be one of the fastest SoCs of this year.
ZOPO also confirms that the Speed 8 flagship will come with NFC feature, which will help it to make digital payments. Other confirmed specs of the device include Helio X20, 4GB of RAM, rear placed fingerprint sensor and Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS out of the box.
Apart from this information, the company also revealed the new slogan for the device, “Not Just Fast”. Also, the manufacturer revealed that Jorge Lorenzo, MotoGP Champion and the company’s brand ambassador will be present at the unveiling of the device in Barcelona on February 24 at MWC 2016. You will also find his newly launched SHARK helmet with ZOPO’s branding at the event.
So far, the Speed 8 looks like a great device with top-end specs. From the teaser images, the phone seems to be well designed as well. Now, if the company prices the device appropriately, we can expect a pretty good response for the device.
Anyways, stay tuned to the site as we will be bringing more news about the upcoming Speed 8 soon. [source]
