Review: Zopo Speed X

By Udit Agarwal

After launching the smartphone Zopo Color M5 last month in India, the company has now unveiled its Zopo Speed X smartphone in the country. The standout feature of the new smartphone is that the company has now tied up with Ratan Tata-funded Artificial Intelligence startup chatbot - Niki - that allows users to perform various types of task with Zopo Speed X. The handset will be made available in two color options of Royale Gold, Charcoal Black, Orchid Gold, and Space Grey but the release date as well as the pricing has not been announced just as yet.

Keeping the chatbot aside, the new Zopo Speed X also sports dual cameras at the primary rear end. The dual camera setup features a primary 13-megapixel sensor and a secondary 2-megapixel sensor that allows it to capture depth-of-field. At front, the new Zopo smartphone comes with a 13-megapixel sensor with an aperture of f/2.0 and soft light LED flash support.
