Zopo plans to invest 100 crore INR ($15mn) in Indian manufacturing

Chinese phone maker Zopo recently announced the Speed 8 in the Indian market with the MediaTek Helio X20 processor. Another bit of news that went with the launch was that of Zopo’s impending investment.

Zopo revealed that they’re looking to invest 100 crore INR ($15 million) in setting up manufacture in India. Zopo have been rather quiet in the recent 12 months or so, which is why this bit of news comes as little surprising.
