China-based Zopo Mobile unveiled new smartphones — the Speed 8 and the Speed 7C — at the recently concluded Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2016 in Barcelona, Spain.
Among the two, Speed 8 is the top-end phone. It sports a metal-clad body with 5.5-inch full-HD display, an 8MP snapper with dedicated LED flash on the front and a 21MP Sony camera with dual-tone LED flash on the rear.
