Update: This post was originally removed at Zopo’s request a few months ago. The specs of the phones have now changed slightly and the article has been updated to reflect this.
What’s this! A new Zopo phone with near bezel less design, up to 3GB RAM, Lollipop, 64bit and LTE! Here are full details of the new Zopo Speed 7 and Zopo Speed 7 Plus phones.
Zopo have promised that this year we are going to see a big change from them. We have already tried their $169 Zopo ZP530, and have to agree that the new Zopo does make quality phones, but what can they do for a flagship?
These early images and specifications have been sent to us listing all the details of the new Zopo Speed 7 Plus and Zopo Speed 7 flagship devices, phones that share the same design and offer high-end hardware.
As the names suggest, the Speed 7 is a smaller 5-inch FHD (146 x 71 x 8.5mm) phone while the Speed 7 Plus has a 5.5-inch 1080p display (153.6 x 76.5 x 8.5mm). In early reports the Speed 7 had just 2GB RAM, but new updated specifications reveal that Zopo have given both of their new phones 3GB RAM.
With a larger 5.5-inch display, the Plus has a 3000mAh battery where as the smaller Speed 7 with a 5-inch panel uses a 2500mAh battery.
At the heart of both new Zopo phones is the new octacore Mediatek MT6753 64bit chipset. Features of the MT6753 include Ca9 LTE support, and a Mali T720 GPU. We’ve seen that the 53 isn’t quite as potent as the MT6752 in Antutu, but in real usage the chip holds its own well even when gaming.
The chipset also brings GSM, 3G and LTE support for the following bands. GSM 850/900/1800/1900Mhz, WCDMA 900/1900/2100Mhz, and FDD-LTE 800/1800/2600Mhz. Zopo have also kept dual SIM support and left space for up to a 64GB SD card.
Other details include Android 5.1 Lollipop with tweaked Z-UI out of the box, 13.2 mega-pixel main camera with ‘fast focus’, and 1080 video recording while the front is a 5 mega-pixel camera.
Zopo will officially release the Zopo Speed 7 and Zopo Speed 7 Plus at an event in China next month. It has also been rumoured that a Zopo wearable will also be unveiled at the event.
