The Chinese smartphone brand Zopo has announced the world’s first smartphone with a deca-core chipset. The Zopo Speed 8 is powered by the 64-bit MediaTek Helio X20 chipset which was announced last year. The smartphone was unveiled by three-time Moto GP champion Jorge Lorenzo.
The Zopo Speed 8 sports a 5.5-inch Full HD display and has a brushed metal-like finish. Other than the Helio X20 SoC, it has 4GB RAM, 32GB of internal storage, and ARM Mali-T880 MP4 GPU. The phone has a 21MP rear camera which is a Sony IMX230 sensor with phase detection autofocus and dual-LED flash. On the front, it has an 8MP camera which is an OV8856 sensor and also comes with dual-LED flash.
The whole package is powered by a 3600mAh battery with support for fast charging. It features a fingerprint scanner at the back which can also be used for capturing photos apart from unlocking the smartphone. There is an USB Type-C port and NFC support so that you can make use of services like Android Pay. The phone runs Android Marshmallow straight out of the box. It measures 152.5mmx76.35mmx9.8mm and weighs 136 grams.
