This isn’t a rumour either, Zopo have confirmed that they will be launching their Zopo Speed 8 with Helio X20 at MWC on February 24th at 10:30am. This wouldn’t be the first time for Zopo to launch the latest Mediatek chip ahead of the pack, they were able to pull off a similar stunt with the release of the Zopo ZP998 a few years back (at the start of the octacore wars).
As for other hardware details, well we don’t know at this time. All we know is the Speed 8 aims to be a game change for Zopo, with all new metal chassis, new features and that powerful processor. We wonder if it will be enough to turn the phone makers fortunes around.
