At MWC 2016 this year, Zopo introduced the first Deca-core smartphone, the Zopo Speed 8, priced at $299. The Zopo Speed 8 is powered by MediaTek’s mid-range Helio X20 which has a total of 10 cores divided in three clusters to provide optimum performance under different loads.
The dual sim handset measures 152.5 x 76.35 x 9.8mm and is quite light, tipping the scale at 136 grams. The Zopo Speed 8 flaunts a brushed metal finish on the back cover, where you will also find slightly protruded primary camera flash with Dual tone flash and a fingerprint sensor. On the front, there is a 5.5-inch full HD display flanked by dual frontal speakers.
The Helio X20 will be doing all the heavy lifting assisted by 4GB RAM and 32GB internal storage. There is no option to add secondary MicroSD storage though. On the software front, Zopo Speed 8 is running Android 6.0 Marshmallow with a custom skin on top.
The primary camera has a 21MP Sony IMXW230 sensor with 6p F2.2 aperture lens, PDAF and dual LED flash. The front 8MP selfies shooter has Omnivision OV8856 sensor with 4p F2.0 aperture lens and also an LED flash. On paper, you are pretty much covered for low light selfies.
Other features include 4G LTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 4.1, GPS, USB Type-C, NFC, USB OTG and a massive 3600 mAh battery with fast charging support.
