ZOPO is among the lesser known smartphone manufacturers from China but they have come up with some decent mid-range smartphones that offer decent specs at an affordable price tag. Earlier this year in August, the company had made its way into India when they launched ZOPO Speed 7, which features an impressive spec sheet for a mid ranger. The company later went on to launch the successor of the Zopo Speed 7, the Zopo Speed 7 Plus, which featured a metal body.
